Heard this yesterday, and thought of you all.  Sorry!

    Indeed.  Thank you, sir.  And right back at you.  :thumbup1

    That song reminds me of a story I heard from a friend long ago about "good people".  Odd I would think of it now all these years later.   :hmm

    Not wishing to depart from the Christmas spirit, but I gotta share with you guys two of my favorite contemporary blues performers -- Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa.

    Here they are together.   I got to see Joe live last week and it was a real treat.  I'm biased, but he may now be the best active electric blues guitarist.  Beth is better, IMHO, than Etta James, who did this originally.  Joe breaks loose on the Tele at about the 4:25 mark or so.

    While she's popularly known for her truly strange attire, Miss Lady Gaga does have some serious talent and voice.

    And she's professional enough, and can be classy enough when she wants to be, to hang with an old pro like Tony Bennett.

    (I can say I've seen both live, Bennett at the Live 105 Accoustic Christmas a couple of decades ago, and Lady Gaga at the Bush Foundation Hurricane Harvey benefit that was done here at A&M.)



    And since we're one classy broads doing Christmas music:

    Those of you already know that I love Lost Dog Street Band. Well, I've been doing a helluva a lot of driving across the great state of Texas lately and this song found it's way to my speakers. It resonated with me to some degree. I originally thought it was about any loss/departure, but after listening to it having come home now, I see it is regarding a specific tragedy of narcotics.



    While it isn't exactly what I thought it was, here is a tune that does fit the genre and the loss departure category.



    And an extra for the road:

    Love Dougie MacLean, in a manly sort of way, of course!  He's the reason (indirectly) that there's a Scottish Parliament today.  Long story.  See "Caledonia", a song he wrote when he was a homesick teenager.
