Music Monday: Harry Connick Jr. – When My Heart Finds Christmas

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek.  I saw it at Carrie’s Book Reviews and _For Book’s Sake. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Mondays to change things up a little on the blog.

Harry Connick Jr. has been a favorite of mine since When Harry Met Sally came out in the late 1980’s. Everyone was comparing him to Frank Sinatra, which is a compliment, but Harry was actually a child prodigy who had been performing for years and cut his first album when he was something like 13. He wasn’t just a singer, he was a songwriter, musician and performer.

I think I have all of Harry’s CD’s, but most especially the three Christmas CD’s: When My Heart Finds Christmas (Amazon) (AbeBooks), which came out when I was in college, Harry for the Holidays (Amazon) (AbeBooks) and What a Night! (Amazon). They are all in regular rotation of my vast Christmas music collection, right along there with Bing and Frank and Dean and Nat.

Here’s the official video from all those years ago:

And here’s a more recent rendition, done when Harry Connick Jr. had his own talk show. I normally don’t watch morning TV after the news, but when Harry was on, I watched. I loved his show.

“When My Heart Finds Christmas”

When My Heart Finds Christmas
When My Heart Finds Christmas
In my eyes are valentines
And easter eggs and New Year’s wine
But when my heart finds Christmas
My eyes will shine like new

All the days are kind to me
But fall too far behind to see
But when my heart finds Christmas
I hope it finds you too

Let the angels sing around us
Christmas time is here
Let our children’s love surround us
Laughing and filled with cheer

My heart told me once before
To find my dream and search no more
But when my heart finds Christmas
I hope it finds you too
