Day 25 - 'I Want You With Me Christmas' - Jesse Belvin

And here we are again..

As I never tire of saying, the Calendar is a collection and not a 'best of' or 'chart' so nothing should be made of the fact that this song is the 25th this year, barring the fact it is rather lovely, eminently suited to the day and probably not the type of thing you're likely to hear much on the radio today.

Jessie Belvin was an aspriring and successful R 'n' B singer and songwriter who life was tragically cut short in a road accident at the age of  - yes, you've guessed it - 27.

This is a gorgeous doo-wop style song from the '50's and it won't surprise you to know the video featues a record going round at 78 rpm. Watch it here - Jesse Belvin - as you keep an eye on the turkey.
