Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- Episode One

It’s back!

We begin our annual exercise in Christmas nostalgia and merriment with a seamlessly edited compilation reel of Darlene Love’s performances of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on David Letterman’s late nighters. You miss it. You know you do.

Love and Letterman, with ring-a-ding musical arrangements from Paul Shaffer, teamed annually until Dave’s final Christmas show in December 2014. Here’s the entire song in various guises, with Love’s voice always in full trumpet no matter what her age or hairstyles. I can’t think of a better or more rousing way to start The Countdown. Can you?
