Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) - Darlene Love

This is the Wall of Sound meets the Wall of Xmas…..Darlene Love does this song just so right, and though I have about 20 versions of it including the Death Cab for Cutie one, this is one for a little bit of the Christmas romance feel. It goes back to my first Xmas kiss, not from Auntie Telulah either, with Sue Burley who wanted to do more than kiss in 1963!

The song was written by Phil Spector, along with Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, with the intentions of being sung by Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes. According to Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector was not able to put as much emotion into the song as needed. Instead, Love was brought into the studio to record the song which became a big success over time and one of Darlene Love’s signature tunes.
