Is it just me?

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.

Wouldn’t that be like Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens before he converted to Islam) doing a cover of “The Dreidel Song“?

Just making an observation…
