Romantic Christmas Songs Part 2December 13, 2012
Seeing as this is my most popular topic/post I thought I should add a few this year.
For the original list, please see Romantic Christmas Songs. I still maintain “Don’t Take Down the Mistletoe” is the most romantic.
So this year I’d like to add:
Let It Snow by Straight No Chaser on their 2009 Christmas Cheers album. What makes this special and more romantic over others? Well, the thought of a 10 member-boy/man group singing to me … and bringing the corn for popping … you get the point. Actually they did a great arrangement and unlike the slightly creepy undertones of Baby, It’s Cold Outside I think anyone romantically involved could be persuaded to Let It Snow and stay by the fire. Additionally–I love, LOVE, their rendition of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. Not romantic–just cool!
On This Winter’s Night by Lady Antebellum on their new album of the same name. I believe this is one of two original songs on the album, written by the three members. What I liked about this song is that it definitely starts off with expressing romantic love. Then mid-way through the song a children’s chorus joins in and it becomes about familial love–that’s where romance should lead after all. Finally, with the verses about the King became a Child and the Child became a King, the song becomes about reverent love. This is reminiscent of The Greatest Gift of All by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.
I really need to get a copy of Michael Buble’s Christmas album to see if he has some romantic offering to make one swoon. I also want to check out Francesca Battistelli’s new Christmas album.
