Song of the Day: 'Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)' by Darlene Love

My girl sings her classic song from "A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector" on "Late Show With David Letterman" for the final time, a tradition we can only pray will carry on when Stephen Colbert assumes the reigns in 2015. How would we know it's Christmas if it didn't?

UPDATE: Awful news -- Love says she is retiring the song.

Love told the NY Times last week that out of respect and gratitude to Letterman, she will not sing the song on a talk show again. She credits him and the platform he gave her with the song for a good part of her comeback.

She also said she climbed on the piano to avoid embracing Letterman and crying on the air.
