23 December: Cary Grant: Christmas Lullaby

Published December 23, 2012

Cary Grant: legendary movie star, expert comedy actor - and maker of bizarre Christmas single. I'm sure this ode to his one-year-old daughter Jennifer (today an actress in her own right, just like her mother, Dyan Cannon) was well-intended, but to me it sounds a little creepy. But hey, a year or so had passed since Cary Grant decided to retire as an actor and a guy has got to do something with his time, right?

Released in 1967, one wonders if the record company really expected the 'Christmas Lullaby' single to become a hit. If so, they were deluded.

Listen to 'Christmas Lullaby' here.
