Hello, Vixens!!! Welcome back to the countdown.

There are a lot of people who like their Christmas music old school. I can totally understand that, being the music purist that I am. And I love those songs, too (well, most of them anyway.) But then I started hearing different versions of holiday music thanks to TV shows & movies using newer recordings in the soundtracks, or from watching videos of fresh covers during MTV’s heyday, or hearing them performed in more novel ways during Christmas shows and specials. And I fell in love with the songs all over again.
For years I did not hear any other version of this song except the original one from 1942. There is no denying it is beautifully done. Heck, it is the best selling single of all time. But there are many different definitions of beautiful, and if I never heard this interpretation, what a misfortune that would have been. For anyone who loves his original version of “What A Wonderful World“, today’s song is for you.
