holiday music recap
Well, there it goes. No more "White Christmas" or "Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer" for another year. And that's O.K. Let's face it, a lot of holiday music is a bit much to take, even when one is in the cheeriest of moods. There are undeniable classics, sung by the best of the best, especially by Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole. But what I think I'll miss the most of all is the chance to hear music by people who I never get a chance to hear any other time of the year, like Eartha Kitt, Dean Martin, and The Kinks. It's a shame that most of these artists have disappeared from the airwaves, but at least the holiday season brings them front and center once again, if only for a little while.
