Christmas morning I awoke with a throat like sandpaper, but in decent spirits nonetheless. David and I had spent New Years Eve with our adopted New Jersey family playing Beatles Rock Band (David on guitar for once…and me on wine…as usual). He had mentioned wanting to record an alternate version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. One that was perhaps a bit more somber. So he was excited to discover, by way of Wikipedia, that the orignal draft by Hugh Martin was slightly more depressing than what ended up being used in the film Meet Me In St. Louis. We didn’t have much time, and the only guitar I had was a refurbished busted toy guitar, but we decided to try to record it by 4pm that day, despite the fact that my vocal cords were channeling Tom Waits.
