Christmas On The Bottom? Macca records "The Christmas Song"

Postby Awesoman » Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:32 pm

Looks like Macca found some time whilst recording his Kisses album to record his own version of "The Christmas Song" with Diana Krall's band. The song is planned to appear on a forthcoming Christmas album titled Holidays Rule. You can listen to it here:

I want to hear Paul sing my favorite Christmas song: O Holy Night. But those others are nice songs too.

I find McCartney's version of "The Christmas Song" to be a quaint little cover. There's nothing really remarkable about it, but it's a pleasant reading of a Christmas standard. Should have no problem fitting in with my other Christmas music collection.

I just listened to the song and I found it to be a pretty good rendition. Kudos Macca (but I still like the rock and roll).

I didn't like Kisses...but I like this alot. Very Christmassy! I can picture myself now, eating a mince pie, sat beside an open fire roasting my nuts. :santa
