Advent song for December 5

I didn’t know before I started researching this project that Jackie Wilson’s Reet Petite, originally written in 1957, was the Christmas number one in 1986. I assumed that it had been re-released following Jackie’s death, but since he died in January 1984 that doesn’t seem like an obvious leap of logic. But it’s a terrific song, so whatever the reason, I’m glad that it’s given me a chance to include it here.

Tomorrow, an actual Christmas song!
