Advent calendar—December 5

Frank Sinatra, “Violets for Your Furs” (1954)
from Swing Easy and Songs for Young Lovers
Capitol W587

It’s not a Christmas song per se, but it’s a December song and a shopping song. Tom Adair’s verse paints as vivid a picture of winter in the big city as any holiday standard, and you can almost see the snowflakes falling with those opening piano notes. Frank reminds you what it feels like to be in love at this time of the year, even if you haven’t been—yet.
