Happy Birthday Baby Jesus 2006

Here at ARLT we dig deep. We give and give and then give a little more. One more from the archives.

2006, my first year back in Charlottesville. Listening to this one, I realize that I was at least a little lost that year… Oye’s “Last Christmas” is almost too sad to take, and talk about making a song your own. Wow. But this year, I skipped over “Another Lonely Christmas.” Didn’t want to hear. May never listen to it again. How wonderful it is, three years later, to be able to look over my shoulder and sing my songs to a certain someone… (You know who you are, you are my sexy Christmas baby mine.)
