from MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY
Written by David Foster & Linda Thompson
“Grown-up Christmas List,” composed by David Foster and Linda Thompson, is one of the true modern-day Christmas classics together with Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas,” co-written by Foster’s pal Walter Afanasieff, and Wham’s perennial hit, “Last Christmas,” written and sung by the late George Michael (1963-2016). Foster originally recorded “Grown-up Christmas List” in 1990 with the late Natalie Cole (1950-2015) for his solo River Of Love album. That first version was also included in Foster’s 1993 The Christmas Album.
