christmas series #13: ray charles and betty carter
It's safe to say that this album helped out with Betty Carter's popularity, although she is a really gifted vocalist. You should look up her stuff sometime. Ray, of course, never really stopped being popular but I'm still mad that an actor with two Xs in his name won an Oscar for playing him. (PERSONAL JAMIE FOXX RANT PART #322. It's why I couldn't include a picture of Jamie above side by side with the Ray one, even though that makes perfect sense.)
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" really puts me in a winter mood. Even though it's literally 80 degrees in Austin today and I saw a girl wearing a tank top and jean shorts. Hopefully Santa doesn't get confused by the warm weather and the big man still knows we are here waiting. If it's cold where you are, enjoy this slowed down and exciting version of a great song. Listen to the fire place ROAR!
