Music of the day – We Need A Little Christmas

A fun song composed by Jerry Herman for the Musical “Mame” in 1966.

As you’re watching the video, see if you can spot a young Kenny Rogers and Kim Carnes, who were members of The New Christy Minstrels circa 1966.

    I don’t know who Kim Carnes is. But, I looked for Kenny Rogers but couldn’t find him. I guess he had that beard for so long, I don’t remember his face.

      Kim Carnes?
      Probably best known for this Donna Weiss/Jackie DeShannon song recorded in 1981

      Her hair is Harlowe gold
      Her lips sweet surprise
      Her hands are never cold
      She’s got Bette Davis eyes

          Might be my fault – didn’t explain my post very well.
          Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon wrote the song (around 1974), –
          Kim Carnes had a major hit with it about 6 years later.
          Jackie DeShannon first recorded the song (1975?) but it didn’t do too well
          / it does have a nice up tempo R & B feel to it:

          The Kim Carnes version with the iconic keyboard riff was a major hit:
