Oh how I tried. I fell asleep trying. To find the Pretenders singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, that is. Nowhere. I happened to love the album A Very Special Christmas from 1987. It perfectly encapsulated the pop/rock music scene at that time with some very nice renditions of Christmas classics. But am I offering up any of that today? No. If you own it, now might be the time to dig it out though. My heart was set on that one song, without it – I can’t go on.
But I will go on and offer up a nice Christmas music assualt alternative in the form of Damien Rice. He is a brooding Irish singer and he’s kind of cute, which is always a bonus (sorry I know that doesn’t constitute useful information for some of you). But I love the building swirl of layers of the piano, their voices, the cello, the drums. Ah you know what, did I read up on him and do my research? No. So why don’t we cut to the chase for today. Below is the video for 9 Crimes from the album 9 which is a recent release. I think he may even fit in nicely with your last minute Christmas shopping (although there is something about a loaded gun…pay no attention to that part). Oh and lest I forget, here is a link to HIS SITE, which depedent upon whether you like the video or not, is a little Christmas gift for you. There you can check out his other videos and music and you know, fa ra ra ra ra…
