Musical Interlude - U2

Since it seems, for all intents and purposes, that my blog has now become a radio station, I thought I'd just roll with it and make today's post a dedication. (Do any of you even remember when you could call radio stations and dedicate a song to someone? Does anyone even listen to the radio station anymore? I know I don't. It's Pandora all the way. But I digress...) Without further ado... just imagine a 50's disc jockey's voice...

Welcome back! This is the Storm in a Teacup, station DLW13 out of Peoria, playing all the hits you know and love. We've got stacks of the best tracks in wax! And now, hold onto your holly, because we're sending out a little Christmas cheer to a Mrs. Laura in Phoenix. Here come your boys from Dublin, belting out a holiday jam that'll make you swoon, 'cause Bono want's to know... won't you please come home...? Let's give it a spin!



Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
By U2

The snow's coming down
I'm watching it fall
Watching the people around
Baby please come home

The church bells in town
They're ringing a song
What a happy sound
Baby please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on the tree
I'm watching 'em shine
You should be here with me
Baby please come home

Baby please come home
Baby please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

If there was a way
I'd hold back these tears
But it's Christmas day
Baby please come home
Ohh...
Baby please come home

Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Ohh...Baby please come home
Baby please come home

I only have three Christmas CDs in my car, A Very Special Christmas is one of them because of this song.

Thank you for the dedication, it made me smile. :)

Well, I'm 99% sure you're the only person reading my blog now*, so I figured you deserved a little shout-out. You're still hangin' in there with me... ;-)

(*Of course this is probably because I haven't written a real post in awhile...if I did, my readers might return.)
