Here’s a lovely Christmas time chestnut by lyricist Kim Gannon and composer Walter Kent! I like doing songs and texting in a paint by numbers world. Auto correct! Am I right? I hope Santa didn’t mind too much.
A dear friend asked me to consider this Peter Gabriel song. I gave it a listen and was just floored. It’s as relevant today as it was the day it was written. Compassion and empathy for all my brothers and sisters is always relevant. Our friend Rebekah Del Rio sings so beautifully and and with so much passion. I get schooled every time I hear her sing. She inspires me and I love her very much.
Tom Waits wrote this song. I’m usually a little hesitant to cover songs by Tom Waits. His music feels so complete when he performs it. What can I bring to it? But his songs are so irresistible. My friends Kerry Marsh, Billy Pitman, Andrew Quinn and Doo Dah joined me on this one. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. You can get a single here.
