I was listening to the radio this morning as I put up our outside Christmas lights. I decided to open my truck windows and to crank up the local station that does the whole “All Christmas All The Time” format. Back to back I was treated to Barbara Streisand’s version of “Ave Maria” followed by Neil Diamond’s version of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” Both songs were musically solid, but I couldn’t help but be struck by the irony of these two musicians, both Jewish, doing covers of overtly Christian tunes.
Just making an observation…
