k, I know this song was released last Christmas on the Dapo & Friends Christmas Volume 1 album (still available for free download at dapoandfriendschristmas.com btw) but I never really listened to it until now (I blame PASD… post-Announcement Stress Disorder).
I don’t know if it was D’s hypnotic lower register or the mesmerizing arrangement with the underlying percussion track but I’m still hooked on it, which is cool because since I missed out on listening to it last year, it’s like discovering a new song.
Even the way David sings it is different from the way he usually delivers Christmas songs … and so much different than his live MKOC tour version, which I also love.
It’s so laid back and soulful …. like he’s singing to himself with his eyes closed remembering Christmases past or something (if that makes any sense at all).
It’s a carol I’ve always loved even BD (before David)… the story of a poor young boy with no gift to give but his music … “then, he smiled at me, parumpapumpum….”
Anyway… how about you guys … any songs you’ve “rediscovered” lately, Christmas or otherwise?
