In reference to Patrick Hynes’s “That Old Feeling Again,” I am sure you’ve heard it thousands of times by now, but it seems that Patrick Hynes has mixed his seventies standard bearers. Paul Davis, not Barry Manilow, performed the plaintive ballad “I Go Crazy.”
I’m afraid I must admit to being the only red-blooded man on the planet who will admit to enjoying Manilow’s music (There! I’ve said it. I feel better now), but I suspect that Paul Davis would take offense at being confused with the lightweight, but unexplainably wildly successful, Barry Manilow.p>We seventies fossils know that, though Barry may find himself facing that old feeling again, it’s Paul Davis who allowed us to momentarily escape the incessant disco beat and, “deep down inside,” go crazy. br> — David Atchison

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
