Advent songs for December 20: A (n almost) festive double bill

Yes! Two songs today, because they go well together and because I had one too many. First one you’ll know: Simon and Garfunkel’s Silent Night/7 O’Clock News, which is no less tough a listen now than it was in 1966, and secondly Nina Simon’s gorgeous Little Girl Blue, and if you listen closely you’ll spot the common theme.

Happy Saturday!
