For the Christmas…

Darlene Love performing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on Letterman.

It will finally feel like Christmas when Darlene LoveĀ sings on the David Letterman show tonight. It’s a holiday tradition that I’m going to miss now that Letterman is ending his “Late Night” run.

I’m not a Letterman guy, I was watching Arsenio during the whole “Tonight Show” thing back in the early 90s, and even when I was up every night for Kilborn’s show, I wasn’t watching the lead-in.

But this is the one thing that makes me tune in every year. I mean, Darlene Love is Mrs. Murtaugh from the “Lethal Weapon” movies, I wouldn’t miss that. And “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” is the greatest Christmas song ever.

If you need proof, here’s a supercut of her performances on Letterman going back decades.
