I listen non-stop to Pandora’s Swingin’ Christmas station during the holidays. How can you not get in the spirit with some gorgeous horns of the Big Band era blaring? And Ms. Fitzgerald’s voice is like a blanket on a cold winter day. She has got to be whatever the female version of a crooner is.
I like this song because its not one of those sickly sweet cheery Christmas songs. It kind of says “things might have kind of sucked this year but there is a new year around the corner. Let’s just enjoy Christmas and hope the new year brings better things.”
