In this week’s video evangelism, we have a story just in time for Christmas shopping preparations.
It turns out, not every entertainer in Hollywood has done a Yuletide tune. Let’s add Bob Dylan to the mix!
As first reported on the Web site BullyPulpit.com, at least four songs have already been recorded for the album including, “Must Be Santa,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “O Little Town of Bethlehem.”
What’s next? “A hard snow’s gonna fall,” “Snowin’ in the Wind” or “It ain’t me, Santa”? Need we remind you this is Bob Dylan (nee Robert Zimmerman), as in really Jewish… singing CHRISTmas songs! Mazel Tov, Bobby.
Mind you, he seems to have returned to the faith. Dylan went through a “born again” Christian phase from 1979-81, releasing several gospel-style albums including “Slow Train Coming” and “Saved.”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan… at least when he was coherent to the point somewhere between barely understandable English and a man with 15 cold sores on his tongue.
But how would this sound to a Zionist on a brisk Christmas Eve [cue harp music]:
“Jeeen-guuuulll B-eeeeeels. Jeeen-guuuulll B-eeeeeels. Jeeen-guuuul All… the Waaaaayy.”
Okay, if that didn’t quite make the reference point to you, try this video clip on for size (told you this was Cross Eyed):
