HOLIDAY LOVE- LETTERMAN'S ANNUAL GIFT TO VIEWERS - CBS-TV - CIRCA DEC. 21,2012
In the Yuletide landscape of network television, one of the truly anticipated, Holiday traditions is the incomparable Darlene Love's annual performance of CHRISTMAS ( BABY, PLEASE COME HOME) on CBS-TV's LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN.
It is one of most vibrant and electrifying moments of video that you can enjoy, all year long.
Love has performed the Christmas standard on the Letterman show since 1986, when he was hostingLATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN on NBC. When a writers strike prevented her from performing on the show in 2007, an earlier version was aired.
The emotionally charged song was written in 1963 by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector ( who is a whole other, less sentimental story, all onto himself). Love's vivid and intense rendition was released as part of a compilation album of Holiday tunes.
It has been part of the soundtrack of the Christmas season in America , ever since.
