This is quite possibly my favorite rendition of O Holy Night I've heard yet - instrumental (horns). It was apparently on Studio 60 this past week. If there's an entire album from these guys I just might have to buy an actual Christmas album.

For some reason it keeps cutting off the link.

copy and paste (add mp3 to the end):

The one Christmas song I really can't stand is "Carol of the Bells."

Play the right version of it and it sound like what one might hear while someone is being stabbed to death 'neath the Christmas tree.

Just my opnion.

So the "scenario" is alas, the only one possible. At least that I could think of..

OK, here's the WORST Christmas song. It's a version of "Oh, Holy Night" called "Oh, Holy Crap."

That's beautiful, I wish I could save it

I heard John Legend sing O Holy Night on a Christmas special, I thought that was pretty good

you should be able to save it - once you've loaded the page, click on the address and then hit alt-enter and it should download.

Get out, really? Huh, you learn something new every day!

She did such a good job of writing a song that sounds like an old throwback that I thought it WAS an old throwback!

It's definitely my favourite by a long shot.

That didn't work with Firefox, maybe IE. Nothing technical like that ever works for me.

And was that Chris Botti?

When I first saw that a few weeks ago it brought tears to my eyes. So moving.
When they showed it again the other night I taped it.
If you find an album, pm me..

Yes, infact I`m playing it right now!

I also love the old stuff by Bing, Sinatra & Dean Martin - my Mum got me into those.
