And I will never grow so old again

Second Christmas because we had our first Christmas on Sunday. On Sunday, our daughter and her wife were able to be here — daughter-in-law is a nurse and has to work today. So we had the big dinner with lots of people over and did the major present-unwrapping and Christmas stockings on Sunday.
Today, we’re just having a very quiet second Christmas, watching sappy movies and planning a nice holiday meal later, for just the two of us.
Occasionally, I find something that is just the best. Since today is Waltz Wednesday I have a gorgeous rendition for you of one of the many Christmas songs in triple metre. My favorite version of Silent Night:
One group I did not expect to see much in #WaltzWednesdays is The Rolling Stones.
Yes they can be lyrical and soft (Angie! Ruby Tuesday!) but aren’t they kind of an opposite number to The Beatles? You know the classic A/B test questions: Betty or Veronica? Batman or Superman? Beatles or Stones?
The Beatles did so many waltzes that I did not expect to find many from the Stones. And yet here it is, with every bit of the softness and delicacy of a She’s Leaving Home or Norwegian Wood.
This… is a Captain Beefheart song.
It’s hard to believe it’s the same guy who came up with…
Blue-tinted, and kinda country-sounding.
Are The Rolling Stones not the first band that pops to mind for you after that description?
