Leonard Nimoy at No.1.


I quite like Britain's Christmas no. 1, and it always makes me think of The West Wing because I heard it there first as incidental music to some unfolding scene or other. It is no.1 because of I'm an X Factor get me out of here, a show I never ever tuned into. Anyhow, it's a nice enough ditty.

Did you know it was writen originally with 33 (I think) verses? Don't think I could stand it for that long!

The Shrek version was by Rufus Wainwright, whom I adore...I do love this version as I am a soul/motown fan...

ooh, love it beautiful song. Isn't this the part when CJ's secret service guy gets it? That's what it makes me think of... that was a sad part. She totally didn't deserve that. Hmm, I'm gonna have to watch for it. I particularly like when YoYo Ma performs during the episode where Josh is dealing with his PTSD. 'Course I just think West Wing rocks all around.

oh happy late christmas
