about

Jody's new holiday tune "Warm" is a toe-tapping, retro-pop homage to holiday romance amid the bright, bawdy, blinking spectacle that is Christmas in the city. Composed under the electric glare of her next-door-neighbor's award-winning holiday lights display, she looks forward every year to the December stretch when going to sleep entails wearing a pair of sunglasses to bed.

Band roster:
Jody Blackwell – acoustic guitars, vocals
Mike Mele – electric guitar
Steve Chaggaris – drums
Joe McMahon – bass
Ken Clark – Wurlitzer organ, piano

lyrics

Warm (c) (p) 2011 Jody Blackwell, Sweet Amnesia Music (ASCAP)

Winter glows from all the city roofs
splinters of electric light
People trading gifts and platitudes
toasting to the best of times

Cold has come like a peddler passing through
to wrap the night in bows and bells
Every airwave echoes with a tune
carols we all know so well

Come to where
my love is warm
We'll steam the window panes
Kiss me 'til the world is gone
and only we remain

Such a pretty scene outside my window
bawdy blinking angel choirs
Singing "Alleluia!" while the wind blows
Nothing draws us out tonight

Come to where
my love is warm
We'll steam the window panes
Kiss me 'til the world is gone
and only we remain
