I don’t do alot of traditional Christmas music these days. Not because I don’t appreciate it, but because after working retail for most of my life I’ve heard more horrid versions of it than I can count. And trying to sort out the good from the bad to listen to just isn’t something I want to go through.
But some songs just belong, especially on Christmas Eve.
Course, then you have to find someone singing it who doesn’t murder it. Turns out more than half the folks who’ve done this song professionally have “played” with it. Made it fancy. Added vocal trills.
Simple is good folks. This is a simple song.
