Tune Time - Put A Little Love In Your Heart

The song was originally performed in 1968 by Jackie DeShannon, who composed it with her brother, Randy Myers, and Jimmy Holiday. In 1988, Annie Lennox and Al Green recorded a version that was released as the ending theme song to the 1988 film Scrooged. The song reached #9 in the USA on the Hot 100 in January 1989 and climbed all the way to #2 on the US Adult Contemporary chart, as well as becoming a top 40 hit in several countries worldwide. This is the version I like.


  1. I see you've 'Decked the Halls!' Very pretty header :)

    I really enjoyed this pairing. Of course, what's not to love about Annie Lennox - so gorgeous - and Al Green, he sure makes some sexy music! There are so many really great modern Christmas classics now - I'm looking forward to watching some over the Christmas season.

  2. I'm decking the halls, for sure, but not quite done yet. We put up our outdoor Christmas lights and I've placed decorations around the house, but our Christmas tree is not up yet. Maybe this week.

    I really enjoy Christmas music over the holidays. I play it in the house while I'm cooking for doing things; it really makes me feel the spirit of the season --- and helps me forget how much I hate winter!
