Old School Friday - It's Christmas


I am not a Christmas person, but I do like the music and films associated with the season. I have chosen two of my favorite old school Christmas songs. The Ojays "Christmas Just Ain't Christmas Without the One You Love" and the Emotions "What Do The Lonely Do At Christmas". No when you see the video for the latter song you may ask why Alicia Keys is in the video. I don't know why who ever uploaded the song dubbed it into an Alicia Keys video, but one thing for sure, this is the original song being performed by the Emotions. Enjoy the selections and I wish all who visit a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, or just a very pleasant week ahead!

Pjazzy, you and I and Sjp think alike. Again, I seriously considered both selections and artists. I ruled out the Emotions because I couldn't find the video and SjP was too late with the link! I love the Emotions and the O'Jays my homies from Ohio! I love all of their music. Happy OSF and Happy Holidays!

My mom use to play What Will The Lonely Do, over and over. She really loved that song. And now, it's also one my favorites. I love the blues even at Christmas.

"What do they dooo, what do they doo"

Merry Christmas, be safe and have fun!

The Emotions song is the one my aunts and uncles would play after all the kids (including myself) were supposed to be in bed...that's when the brown liquor and the cards would appear...

Memories...

Happy Holidays!

I tried to find the Emotions video also and could not find one. A station here in Dallas plays that song all the time!
Great picks you got there!

I am learning so much about another world of Christmas Carols today, it is serious.

Thank you for the lesson. :) Happy OSF.

Pjazzy - just thought I'd stop by and let you know that I am posting The Entire Broadcast of PETER PAN with Mary Martin on The PopArtDiva Blog from today through Wednesday!

This is my idea of a great Christmas treat and one I hadn't seen in decades!

Enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I, for one, will be happy to have the radio stations play anything else than Christmas carols. I'm not really a "Bah! Humbug!" type by nature, but I'm heading in that direction:-)

Still, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
