"All Alone On Christmas" as written by and Steven Van Zandt....
The cold wind is blowin' and the streets are getting dark
I'm writing you a letter and I don't know where to start
The bells will be ringing Saint John the Divine
I get a little lonely every year around this time

The music plays all night in Little Italy
The lights will be going up on old Rockefella's tree
People window shopping on Fifth Avenue
All I want for Christmas is you

(Tell me) I've got to know
Where do lonely hearts go
Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas

Things are different since you've been here last
Childhood dreaming is a thing of the past
Maybe you can bring us some hope this year
Visions of sugar plums have disappeared

Do you remember sleigh riding in the snow
And dancing all night to "Baby, Please Come Home"
Today's celebration is bittersweet
There's mothers and children in the street

(Tell me) I've got to know
Where do lonely hearts go
Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas

I'm all grown up but I'm the same you'll see
I'm writing this letter 'cause I still believe
Dear Santa I've been good this year
Can't you stay a little while with me right here

(Tell me) I've got to know
Where do lonely hearts go
Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas

    MemoryMy favorite Christmas song. I heard it in Home Alone 2... such a great movie from my childhood.

    General Comment"All Alone On Christmas" is a song written and arranged by Steve Van Zandt and recorded by Darlene Love with members of both The E Street Band and The Miami Horns. It was featured on the soundtrack of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. [1] It was also released as a CD single which included an instrumental version. The third track on the single was a Christmas remix of The Capitols "Cool Jerk" which was also taken from the same film soundtrack. The single featured a promotional photo of Love with the five members of the E Street Band who featured on the track. [2] A promotional video featured Macaulay Culkin "producing" as Love performed the song with The E Street Band and The Miami Horns. The song was also featured in the film Love Actually [3] and in the 2001 Italian film Merry Christmas. During the first year of her run in the Broadway musical Hairspray, she (who ?) re-recorded the song using the show's cast and band as backup on the charity recording Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for A Cure Vol. 7. The song references Love's earlier holiday recording "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)".
