Wishing all my readers the compliments of the season. Check out the coolest version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town you will ever hear…..
It’s Lou Rawls, who also does an awesome version of The Little Drummer Boy (par up up um pum). The usual source has this to say about him:
Louis Allen “Lou” Rawls (December 1, 1933 â€“ January 6, 2006) was an American soul, jazz, and blues singer. He was known for his smooth vocal style: Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had “the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game”. Rawls released more than 70 albums, sold more than 40 million records, appeared as an actor in motion pictures and on television, and voiced-over many cartoons. He had been called “The Funkiest Man Alive”.

Y’all know of my deep love for the comedy classic Weird Science; of my abiding passion for the second Star Wars film (Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back); and I have mentioned before my admiration for Brit Gangster movies - including last year’s RocknRolla. I don’t think, however, I have mentioned that probably my favorite war film of all time (it competes with The Wild Geese) is Zulu, in which Michael Caine gives a career-defining performance as the officer in charge of the defense of Rourke’s Drift.
Well I have now.
So when I see a trailer like this one for Harry Brown - gritty Brit Gangster film starring Michael Caine, I get very, very excited:
All it needs is Kelly LeBrock’s rack and it would be my perfect movie. It is out on DVD in the New Year. I have pre-ordered it.
Stop your whining. I have been very busy. You don’t think the Afghanistan surge was his idea do you?
In partial recompense, look at these:
