24 December – Star of Wonder

Some say a star will rise again
In the hearts of humankind
Some say we have been in exile
What we need is solar fire

Tori Amos sung this version of We Three Kings on her Christmas album, Midwinter Graces. It’s a little Tori-ish, and heavy handed with the production, and I like it.

20 December – Winter Wonderland

Gone away, is the bluebird
Here to stay, is a new bird
He sings a love song,
While we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

I haven’t actually included Emilie-Claire Barlow’s version of Winter Wonderland on a Christmas mix, but the Christmas songs of hers I have included don’t have YouTube videos. Barlow has a stunning voice, and her version of Winter Wonderland (a 1934 Christmas pop standard) is lovely.
