By Request, ‘The First Noel’

Requested by Phoebe, The First Noel–and I thought Bing Crosby would be just the ticket.

Let’s keep the hymns coming, everybody. Tomorrow’s the last day of the contest! Which does not mean we have to stop posting Christmas music. Hey, I’ve been known to post it in August…

    Thank you Lee … and you even remembered that I like crooners.

    It always strikes me how much more clearly singers of the past articulated their lyrics than singers do today. I think the changes began in the 1970s. Even the rock singers of the 1960s could still make themselves understood. But considering what singers today are singing, it’s probably a good thing that I can’t understand a word they’re saying (or bellowing or twanging or grunting or whatever they’re doing).

    It is nice to hear some of the older singers – the ones who still knew how it is done.
