...who needs a heart?

In 1970 a simple Holiday song entitled "Merry Christmas, Darling" was released and hit #1 on the Billboard charts. Here it is, 40 years later and the song has become a Holiday classic. Karen recorded the song when she was 19 years old, her voice making us believe that she felt every word. Apparently she did. Fast forward and the cast of Glee has recorded their version, keeping very close to the original arrangement. On this day in 1967 Adrian Kantrowitz performed the first human heart transplant in the United States. This is the time of year when those who do not seem to have a heart somehow prove that they do.

"Not enough people in this world are happy." Karen Carpenter
