Christmas Music Favorites

For about 15 years I have been collecting songs about Christmas and the winter weather in general. I now have a digital collection of well over 40,000 songs done by a variety of artists. Many if not most of the artists are not well known. Web sites like Ernie (Not Bert) and Fa La La La La have helped with the collection of some of the most obscure songs by some of the most obscure artists. I have chosen my favorite songs of the season and have put them in a 6 CD collection. For what it's worth, here are the songs I am listening to this Christmas. You will recognize many of the artists but I am sure there will be some songs and artists that you are unfamiliar with.

Cheers!

Christmas Memories

There’s an old saying that goes like this: It’s not really drinking alone if the dog is home. That said, as I listened to Christmas music this afternoon and poured my second red beer I became a little nostalgic (blame it on the alcohol) remembering one of my more pleasant memories of Christmas in Watertown. I must have been either a junior or senior in high school and Mr. Rishoi called me at home around dinner time and said that he was putting together a small group of caroleers to go out that evening. I really don’t remember who ultimately participated but I’m guessing that the group consisted of some of the members of the a cappella choir. We met somewhere downtown (If I recall correctly, the stores were open on Friday nights.) and sang carols on the street corners for quite a while, eventually making our way to an old folks home near the court house where we were invited in to sing for a bit. It was snowing and, of course, very cold but I think a good time was had by all. Cheers! and Merry Christmas!!

Rock 'N' Roll Christmas

It's the holiday season but I wasn't in a festive mood until I came across one of my favorite songs, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), famously performed a couple days before Christmas for many years by Darlene Love on the David Letterman show. Letterman's retired and I have had to get my fix by watching reruns of his show or by listening to Ms. Love singing the original version on Phil Spector's 'A Christmas Gift For You' CD.

Well...there is a new performance of the song that just blew me away. At the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center this year a couple of old broads, Cher and Darlene Love (77 and 82 respectively), performed an iconic rock & roll duet of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). The song was originally performed by Darlene Love with Cher as one of the back-up singers and released in 1963 (for the folks in Tinkertown that is 60 years ago).

Here is the link.

You will not be disappointed if you haven't already seen it.

Fun With Adult Beverages

For many years we have had a party at our house in Halloween. While the kids went trick or treating, in addition to the usual fare of Metro pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken, hot dogs, wine and ‘the coldest beer in town,’ I have, on occasion, entertained the adults with an assortment of unique adult beverages.

It started with a Sunday article in our local newspaper, the Review Journal, describing a drink called ‘chocolate cake.’ From a mixture of fresh lemons, sugar, vodka and Frangelico you end up with a shot glass full of chocolate cake. What fun.

A few years later I was interested in the TV show ‘Justified’ that featured moonshine so I bought a number of different moonshines for a tasting. Blue Flame, White Lightnin’, Apple Pie, cherries soaked in ‘shine’ and a couple other flavors that escape me. More fun...

Another year I discovered that absinthe, also known as “the green fairy” and Van Gogh’s favorite adult beverage, had become legal in the United States, so we did an absinthe tasting. No missing appendages during or after the party, so it was a success.

There was a TV program called ‘Covert Affairs’ that I used to watch. During one episode a scene in a bar describing a drink called a ‘Sazerac cocktail’ was featured and my interest was piqued. I had to run it down. It featured Sazerac Rye, the aforementioned absinthe, a sugar cube, and Peychaud bitters.

The kids are all grown so the Halloween parties have been discontinued but my interest in adult beverages has continued. More recently in was watching Bobby Flay doing Sunday brunch which featured a couple twists on the traditional Bloody Mary. I used to buy a bloody Mary mix at the local grocery store, but now make my own. Mr. Flay uses 1/2 gin and 1/2 vodka, horseradish, lemons, limes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and a bit of jalapeño peppers. Delicious.

I am a huge fan of ‘The Thin Man’ movies and Nick is always drinking something alcoholic albeit never terribly unusual. However, in one movie he mentioned a drink called ‘the Bronx’ although I don’t think he was drinking it. The best thing that has come out of the Thin Man movies are the glasses that are called ‘Nick And Nora’ glasses that you can purchase online for a few dollars. Glasses with an old fashioned flair somehow make the drinks taste a little better. For that matter, nice glasses, be they Baccarat, Faberge, or Waterford, all make the cocktails in them taste just a little better.

That brings me to the past week. While watching TCM (Turner Classic Movies for those of you in Altuna) last Saturday, there was an ad for a book in the TCM Library that I couldn’t resist. I don’t know if y’all watch the World Of Film Noir on Saturday nights but it is a show hosted by a very dapper Eddie Muller featuring old ‘B’ movies usually from the late 40’s to the mid 50’s. I logged into the TCM Library online and at the top of the list was a book entitled ‘Eddie Muller's Noir Bar: Cocktails Inspired by the World of Film Noir.’ For the price of a scotch at Flemings, the local steak house, I purchased the hardcover book.

Cheers!

The book pictured above features recipes of drinks from the noir movies along with a list of various spirits required for a Noir Bar. My home bar has the usual suspects, most of which I don’t drink, including Black Label scotch, vodka, gin, a couple different whiskeys, light and dark rum, VSOP Cognac, brandy, Bailey’s, Kaluha, Amareto, sweet and dry vermouth, Peychaud and Angostura bitters, but was sadly lacking quite a few items for a Noir Bar and I spent the past week tracking down the listed items along with a couple different variations of ‘Nick And Nora’ glasses. After trips to three different liquor stores and a visit to Amazon for three variations of Nick And Nora glasses I was able to find 98% of Eddie’s recommendations. If anyone knows where to find Pamplemousse liqueur please let me know. Now that I’ve acquired all the necessary ingredients the fun really begins. Bottoms up!

Baseball Snowflakes

During the game on Saturday between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees, the Chicago catcher got in the face of Yankees third Josh Donaldson when he came to bat and then Tim Anderson came after Donaldson, and of course everyone was calling Donaldson 'RACIST'. 'Why all the fuss?' you ask? It seems that Timmy said of himself in an interview with Sports Illustrated in 2019: "I kind of feel like today’s Jackie Robinson” so it hardly seems ‘racist’ when Josh Donaldson said “What’s up, Jackie” to Timmy. Josh Donaldson was just ribbing him. It appears that Timmy is merely a ‘snowflake’, nothing more, nothing less. Timmy needs to find a ‘safe space’ before he melts if that is all it takes to set him off. Calling everyone ‘RACIST’ is really getting old.

All Aboard The Train Of Thought

I was surprised when President ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Biden was caught last week on an open mike describing Peter Doocy of Fox News as “a stupid son of a bitch.”

I was even more surprised that President ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Biden could manage to put together that many words in a row without losing his train of thought.

An Especially Bad Day

An especially bad day for liberals in America.

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ‘The View’ was suspended by ABC for 2 weeks for being stupid. The co-hosts on ‘The View’ say something stupid almost daily so I don’t really understand Whoopi’s suspension.

Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, resigned today, effective immediately, supposedly because he was having a consentual affair with a co-worker, CNN’s executive vice-president and chief marketing officer, Allison Gollust. He should have been fired because he turned CNN into a propaganda machine for the Democrats and CNN had lost millions of viewers since he took over.

Black Lives Matter, the group that had extorted, by some estimates, 80 million dollars from corporate America, is being investigated because it seems that no one has been guarding the hen house and 60 million dollars can not be accounted for. It seems that BLM co-founder, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, was a really only a piker when she used $3.2 million dollars of the BLM funds to buy four homes for herself.

A study by John Hopkins University concluded that the economic lockdowns have done very little, if anything at all, to reduce deaths from the Chinese Wuhan virus, more commonly known as COVID-19. The study stated that lockdowns “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.” It went on to say that “They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy.”

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring for the Democrats.

Sonny Dunham - Memories Of You

Growing up, I played, rather poorly I might add, the trumpet in grade school and high school. My inadequacies aside, I still have a great fondness for music played by great trumpeters.

I have a selection of songs by the famous trumpeter, Bobby Hackett, playing in The red meat Jukebox right now but I recently came across a few songs by a great trumpeter from the 1930's and 40's by the name of Sonny Dunham. I am going to include my favorite of the few songs I have by him called Memories Of You along with the songs by Bobby Hackett in The red meat Jukebox. Not nearly as well known at Hackett, Dunham was, nevertheless, a very special musician.

Invest 3 minutes of your time listening to this. You will not be disappointed.

Winter Wonderland 2014 Is Here!!!

All the songs from my Winter Wonderland 2014 compilation are now in the red meat jukebox for you to enjoy while you sit in front of the fire sipping your cocoa.

There are some favorites in the bunch, but there are also some lessor known tunes by lessor known or long forgotten artists.

Be sure to play close attention to The One Horse Open Sleigh. It is the original version, copyrighted in 1857, of the modern day Jingle Bells. What fun....

Merry Christmas!!!
