    And how you touch us Paul with the music you share! I love this song so very much. I remember hearing it before the 1980’s even began, but it was a wonderful anthem. I didn’t hear it much, but the few times I did, it stayed with me. And look, here you have it presented to us with a Christmas message tacked on. Very cool. I love how you celebrate the season and occasions in this life with records that have a relevance to them. You’re the perfect music director in all things. You are superb DjPaulT and I am in such a great mood a lot of time because of all that you do.

    Have a terrific weekend!!

    Jeff
