I heard Rob Thomas’ “New York City Christmas” on my boring drive to the supermarket today and it’s been stuck in my head since. True, some seasonal music is pure cheeseball but I really look forward to Springsteen’s “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” (You want your heart to melt? http://www.military.com/video/forces/navy/hms-sailors-sing-all-i-want-for-christmas/1313181682001 ) “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Barenaked Ladies with Sarah McLachlan gave a cool twist to an otherwise bland song.
And Mary J. Blige’s new single “This Christmas” is very pretty.
