Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas–Jim Nabors

Shazam, Shazam, Shazam.  George R. sent this one.  If you grew up in front of a television set during the 1960s, you found yourself confused by Jim Nabors who played Gomer Pyle on the Andy Griffith Show and on Gomer Pyle, USMC.  Gomer Pyle, was, well, a gomer, an apparently innocent to the point of naivete southern boy, all good intentions and sitcom foulups, spouting unintended profundities in a bit of a falsetto. After we had all gotten used to that Jim Nabors, he shows up on the Carol Burnett show singing in this sonorous bass-baritone.

The rendition is overblown here.  If you can find the recording, pay attention to how he sings highest bough.   Perhaps the less said about it, the better.
