Friday favorites: Christmas Music
Okay, so I know that with my last post, I urged everyone to ease into the holidays, and part of that meant avoiding Christmas music. But then… I just happened to turn on the TV in the middle of NBC’s live coverage of the tree lighting in Rockefeller Center, and this guy was in the middle of an rockin’ version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.”
His name is Jordan Smith, and I had to google him. Apparently he won The Voice (which I don’t watch). And his Christmas album is awesome.
And, in a burst of irony, the first cut on the album is a gorgeous version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” In this case it’s a perfect pairing of singer and song.
