22 December: Julie London: I'd Like You For Christmas

Published December 22, 2019

Time to get a little romantic again, this time courtesy of the great Julie London. Her 1957 single 'I'd Like You For Christmas' was written by Bobby Troup, whose most famous song was 'Route 66'.

If it was Bobby that Julie wanted for Christmas, I guess he was already in the bag by then (they had both been divorced from their previous spouses for a few years when this song was released), although they didn't marry until 1959. The marriage lasted until Troup's death in 1999.

But that's enough information from your gossip columnist. Let's hear the song instead.

Listen here.

 

She wants you for Christmas.
