It's the Christmas Season!

How about some Elves?  Elvi?  Here, Mr. MacManus does one of his own, as well as one from that other guy:

Is anyone cooler than this?

BTW, Declan, it's not whether it's one 'L' or two, it's just Alyson.  From someplace near Beaumont.

Let's say money, it's a shorter list

Going the '70s:

Sorry for the gratuitous sax.

And, uh, yeah, the keyboard is ghey.

Que Sera

This is probably a re-boot.  Just happened to think of this mesmerizing.

I believe this is the equal of Rundgren's original - and she's so much easier on the eyes.

Afterthought/edit - just to prove the above statement:

I mean, sure, Todd the Dog Blogger Pastor had/has his skunk pelt motorcycle driver hat, but he doesn't wear, uh, butterfly feather eyebrows.

At least not to my knowledge...

And too soon becomes yesterday

Mr. Shane (née Schoen), with the late Messrs. Reynolds and Stewart, performing possibly the best version of Bobby Zimmerman's Tomorrow is a Long Time, circa 1966.

The above photo, right to left, depicts the second iteration of the Trio (following Dave Guard's departure), usually referred to as: Nick, Bob and John. Shane's breathy baritone and Stewart's haunting vibrato harmony make this one of my favorites.

It probably wouldn't surprise you that I first heard more Dylan songs from the Trio, PP&M, Baez and the Byrds, than from the Minnesotan himself.  Positively 4th Street, Tangled Up in Blue, and Rainy Day Women #12 &35 being notable exceptions.
