“And I’m dreaming about how my life could have been/ If only, if only, if only…”

Back in the mid-'70s, when Stonehill was a pioneer of Christian rock.

From a mid-’70s album cover, back when Stonehill was a pioneer of Christian rock.

As if to balance my cheerful last post, here’s the saddest Christmas song you’ll ever hear: Randy Stonehill’s wonderfully bleak “Christmas at Denny’s,” from his 1989 album, Return to Paradise. The song has always been a favorite of mine. “I don’t need no miracle, sweet baby Jesus/ Just help me find some kind of hope in my heart.”

(I’m not a fan of this homemade video montage, but it’s the only YouTube video of the song I found. Plus the sound quality is good. Purchase the song here.)
