Darlene Love, 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home'

As  Darlene Love told Rolling Stone, it took three Jews (Phil Spector, Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich) to write the greatest Christmas song of all time. It's been covered by everybody from U2 to Leighton Meester, but nobody can match Love's emotion and sheer vocal power. As seen here, tune in to The Late Show With David Letterman next week to watch her belt it out, which she's done nearly every year since 1986.
