Sunday songs ~ Christmas


Did you know that I am a great big cheeseball when it comes to Christmas music? Well, I am. Of course I love all the classic favorites, but I'll try out a newer selection from time to time....

I heard this version of "All I want for Christmas is you" in a store the other day, and pretty much cried inappropriately in front of the cashier. When I got home to research who did this cover, I was really surprised to find out that it was Michael Buble. I'm not usually such a fan of his, but I like this one a lot. The vocal style is not overly showy, and his phrasing is impeccable. I also like how he changes up the words here and there.






And now to redeem my cool points, here is some Sufjan Stevens for you to savor. We really wanted to go see his Christmas show this year, but tickets sold out in about .5 seconds :(




Alrighty. I hope you enjoyed the music, but I also wanted to mention that I'm signing off for a couple days for Christmas. There might be a few sparse posts here and there, but I'll mostly be concentrating on spending time with my family :) I hope you have a wonderful holiday, if you celebrate. xoxo

  3. Merry Christmas, Chantilly! :D Awe, "All I Want for Christmas is You" is probably my very favorite Christmas song and this is a great version. Michael Buble is kind of big in Argentina because he married a local actress, hehe.

    Hope you're having some wonderful Holidays! Tight hugs!
