The past few Decembers I have taken to posting something about Christmas. A song. A devotion I read. A quote. I plan to do that this month as well.

My first post is by my favorite singer probably of all time. He made his mark with a group in the 60s and then went solo in the 70s and beyond. He put out a Christmas recording (what else should I call it?) back in 2008 and it stays close to my truck CD player for the whole month in December.  One year it never left the player. 🙂  What’s funny is I have a compilation of his 40 greatest hits and the title tune from his CD is on it: “I Love Christmas.” When that song comes on it truly is Christmas in July.

Anyway, in keeping with the real meaning and spirit of Christmas, I’d like to feature what I consider one of the highlights of the CD. Hope you enjoy it.

And Floyd: you know I had to do this.  In fact, I included this just for you!

    Thanks so much for sharing this song. I never heard it before. I always loved Tommy James and the Shondells “Crimson and Clover” and “Crystal Blue Persuasion”, but didn’t know about this one.

      I think it is one of the highlights of his Christmas album Pam. The two songs you mentioned make my Top 10 list of all time with “CBP” being #1.

    Of course you did!!! I’d be sorely disappointed if you didn’t!

    It’s become sort of a Christmas tradition for me now!!!
