Okay, one thing you have to know about me: my taste in Christmas carols runs very traditional.
I don’t mind pop singers singing pop songs in pop style, but when they start singing Christmas carols in pop style, it rubs me the wrong way. (And some Christmas songs, like “Last Christmas,” need to be retired permanently. Seriously.)
Tonight I was working at the store where I work part-time, and of course, ’tis the season when stores play Christmas music from morning to night; I heard a weird soul/R&B version of “Carol of the Bells.” Let’s just say it was not to my taste. Also, whoever was singing it left out some of the words, so some of the words didn’t fit with the music, which is a major pet peeve of mine.
So, to get the bad taste of that song out of my ears, here’s a good, Muppety version of “Carol of the Bells.”
