Jackie DeShannon - Put a Little Love in Your Heart - Bill Murray - Scrooged

Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi deprecabili e assurdi, trovati conservati, per strani motivi, nel mio personale etere.

Vediamo oggi cosa esce fuori... 🙂

Jackie DeShannon - Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Altro che Un Poltrona Per Due, il vero film di Natale è Scrooged (SOS Fantasmi in italiano) con un fantastico Bill Murray. La cover di Annie Lennox di Put a Little Love in Your Heart del brano del 1969 chiude il film per un abbraccio virtuale collettivo.


"Put a Little Love in Your Heart" is a song originally performed in 1969 by Jackie DeShannon, who composed it with her brother Randy Myers and Jimmy Holiday.
