Who in this world could hate James Taylor? He has made my world less bleak so many times that I can't begin to count them.
I adore James Taylor - many warm, fuzzy memories
How could anyone hate JT? I'm a HUGE fan...we've heard him many times at an outdoor amphitheater, about 3 hours' drive from here, out in the boondocks. Hearing him play guitar & sing, as the sun goes down behind the bluffs - and its light is reflected in the Columbia River - and watching the stars come out, is TOTALLY worth the hassle of getting there and back. I'm just saying.
Someone hates James Taylor? How is that possible?
So nice. Even Maggie dog is humming along with James.
I first heard "In the Bleak Midwinter" on the "Midnight Special," a Chicago-based folk rasio show, with a female vocalist I didn't get the name of. I don't think of it as sad and melacholy, though Christina Rosetti's lyrics are a tad sentimental. But I still love it, sentimental or not.
I do know of some people who don't like James Taylor and feel that he's namby-pamby. Oh, well...Karen - I went to college in Chapel Hill, NC, JT's alma mater. I saw him many times there and there's nothing like singing "in my mind I'm going to Carolina" along with him at Carolina!Steve - I KNEW you would know that Christina Rosetti wrote the poem on so long ago...
Deb - I love those tunes as well!Ms Moon -- I agree totally.Elizabeth -- I miss you and love your profile pic!
Thanks for letting me hear this beautiful song. Ever since I heard You´ve got a friend I love his music. Call me old fashioned...but this is what Christmas music should be.
