A Very Special Christmas…

09 Dec

If you were born in the early-to-mid 1970s, you might hold some sentimental value for A Very Special Christmas. Released in 1987 to benefit the Special Olympics, it’s a collection of Christmas songs from popular musicians of the period. Because this was the pre-American Idol age, that’s not a bad thing.

My favorites in order:

Eurythmics, Winter Wonderland (no official video, just pictures of Annie Lennox, which is a Christmas gift in itself).

Madonna, Santa Baby

U2, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

Oh and, of course…

I’m not as fond of its 1992 follow-up, A Very Special Christmas 2, but it does feature Frank Sinatra and Cyndi Lauper performing Santa Claus Is Coming to Town as a duet (it’s not written as one, by the way, and proper duets are a conversation, but I digress…)
