Hi. This week’s Five Songs comes to you from my favorite coffee shop in New Haven, Ct. — the Willoughby’s on Church and Grove streets. And it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas — it’s a combo of the 20-degree weather (thankfully without wind today), sitting in the living room with my folks and the Christmas tree the past couple of days, the holiday music piping above the piping-hot coffee, and putting my favorite childhood ornament on the tree.
So here goes — more music to try to get festive by. Enjoy:
She’s Coming Home — The Wailers
Christmas on Riverside Drive — August Darnell (aka Kid Creole)
Shake Hands With Santa Claus — Louis Prima
Sleigh Bell Rock — Three Aces and a Joker
Frosty the Snowman — The Ronettes
