The best gift

The best gift
That i ever got
Didn't really weigh a lot
It didn't have a ribbon 'round
And it sometimes made a terrible sound
The best of all it seems to me
It wasn't neath the christmas tree
And yet, i guess i'd have to say
That it made all the other presents twice as gay
The best gift that i've ever known
I'd always wanted most to own
Yet in my dreams of sugar and spice
I never thought it could be so nice
The best gift that i ever get
Was sometimes dry and sometimes wet
Was usually pink but oftentimes red
As it lay so innocently in its bed
The best gift of the year to me
The one i hold most dear to me
A gift that simply drove me wild
Was a tiny new born child...

The best gift
Barbra Streisand

Importantísimo consejo: no compren el cursilísimo album navideño de hace un par de años, sino la joya absolutamente impagable de 1967.

Parece ser que lo grabó a todo correr un fin de semana, en un descanso del rodaje de Funny Girl, con un resfriado a cuestas y los músicos queriendo irse. Pero en aquellos días estaba tocada por el dedo divino y nada, nada podía salirle menos que perfecto.

Vayan corriendo a buscarlo, es una orden. Después de escuchar el reprise de Jingle Bells à la Fanny Brice nada será igual.
