Merry Christmas From The Dino Lounge

bogie-bill

This photo of Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall celebrating the holidays with their kid comes from my pallie Bill.

I did want to say that I hope all of you have enjoyed these last two weeks of Christmas posts here at The Dino Lounge. I had so much fun putting these together. They definitely helped put me in the holiday spirit.

The blog The Shelf started a meme to name your top 10 Christmas music performances. I was tagged by my pallie over at Retro Hound to take part in this.

I remember that MTV would show a lot of Christmas videos during the holiday season when I was a teenager. These are ten of the videos from some of the songs that I enjoyed most back then. Do any of you guys remember these songs? Which ones do you like?

I'm not going to be back as soon as I thought. My cable modem has died. I'm going to have to get another one. I don't have the money for that yet. It will be at least Monday, January 4th before I'm back up here.

I hope that all of you will have a wonderful time with your loved ones. Take good care of yourselves. God bless you all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Paul McCartney: Wonderful Christmas Time



John Mellencamp: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus



David Bowie & Bing Crosby: Little Drummer Boy



Hall & Oates: Jingle Bell Rock



John Lennon: Happy Christmas



Band Aid: Do They Know It's Christmas



Wham!: Last Christmas



Run-DMC: Christmas In Hollis



U2: Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)



Annie Lennox & Al Green: Put A Little Love In Your Heart

Hey, John Mellencamp is great, is one of my favorite New Jersey's guys with that New Jersey Sound like Bruce Springsteen or Southside Johnny. I love to meet him here. Congratulations I think Bogart and Bacall photo is so nice to that Christmas time. If you love Christmas songs you can visit my blog paraquetuloentiendas.blogspot.com
I hope you like it. Merry Christmas, pal.

Goodbye Keith. I've enjoyed your blogs so much. I will miss them. We are having to give up things we don't really need to cut some costs. I hate giving up the internet and cable, but times are getting tough. Hopefully I'll be back sometime in the future. I love your blogs, as well as your sister's. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both.

Wolf Boy said...

Great videos. I've seen all of these over the years. Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Keith! Thanks for the holiday wishes. Hope you have a nice break and look forward to more groovy posts in 2010. I like your song list, BTW - I love the Hall and Oates video because it's so delightfully cheesy and funny.

Just for the record: that McCartney track is one of my favorite Xmas track of all time. A spacey, unexpectedly electric production from Paul. Great post.

Happy Holidays monsieur Keith.
