Christmas Tunes

I was going to write a long post on the Cowboys season. Then I thought why? Everyone in the world is writing about the Cowboys and Jason Garrett. I know that some folks are saying that the Cowboys are very talented. I’m not sure that’s true. Today the Cowboys looked bad – offense, defense and special teams. We will see what happens in the offseason.

Michael Buble’ kinda has a Bing Crosby voice. Soft and mellow. He voice was made for Christmas tunes

When you think about great Christmas tunes, I really don’t think about Joy to the World. It is a nice tune but I really don’t think that anyone has really hit this tune out of the park. Well, Earth, Wind and Fire has a very cool version of Joy to the World.

Winter Wonderland is one of my favorite Christmas tunes. I’m sorry but I really love the Andy Williams version of this tune,

Williams just has a great voice. I remember in high school, trying to play this tune. We killed it. No I mean we really murdered the tune. I’m surprised that are band director didn’t give up. He didn’t and we got somewhat better.

Al Jarreau put out a Christmas album. His version of Winter Wonderland is worth a listen. It swings. Al really leans into the Walking portion of the refrain which gives the tune a nice groove.

So, forget the disappointing Cowboys. Let’s enjoy some great Christmas music.
