Thought it would be fun to share some favorite Christmas songs and other stuff throughout the season...

Courtesy of watching the James Taylor special last night and in the fund raising breaks hearing about his new Christmas cd, I was reminded of this Joni Mitchell beauty.... I heard Susan T do this at Westbury a couple of years back...

Enjoy !!!!!

River

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

-- Joni Mitchell

Love this Joni song. Sarah McLachlan has a very nice version of this on her recent CD (think it's called Wintersong?)

Enya did a song last night at Rockafella and was pretty good.

To the tune of O Come All Ye Faithful

BOB RIVERS - O COME ALL YE GRATEFUL DEADHEADS

O come, all ye Grateful,
Deadheads to the concert.
O come, Grateful Deadheads,
And camp in the street.
Bring rolling papers,
Don't forget your sleeping bags.
O come get us some floor seats,
We've followed them for four weeks,
O come get us some floor seats,
To see the Lord.

O come, all ye hippies,
Throwbacks to the Sixties.
Paint flowers on your van,
And don't wash your feet.
Wear your bell-bottoms,
And your tie-dye t-shirts.
O come let us adore them,
We've quit our day jobs for them,
O come let us adore, them,
Garcia's the Lord

I was at that Susan T show too, OldABBFan. Love that Joni song. I also love James Taylor's rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. Anyone who's a fan of JT has to love it.

That Bob Rivers Twisted Christmas stuff is pretty funny, Uponthe2nd floor. I like how he does O Little Town of Bethlehem to the tune of House of The Rising Sun.
