And Now, Here Are 10 Versions of the Darlene Love Classic "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"

Posted By on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 11:25 AM

We go back and forth a lot about our favorite Christmas songs around here, but for me it's always a toss-up between "Fairy Tale of New York," "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)" and this one, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," originally recorded in 1963 by the inimitable Darlene Love. It's such a good song that it stands to reason so many people would want to cover it over the years. It also, the stands to reason that I would compile a whole bunch of them after the jump. One of them is essential, a few are ok, and some should be banned. Enjoy!
