25 Days Of Christmas Songs: Day 2

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

Most performers who decide to record a Christmas song will cover a cherished favorite.  This is a perfectly accepted practice given the enormous catalog of songs to choose from and the sentimentality of the season.

But every so often an artist will break away from the norm and write an original holiday song.  This artist’s 2004 album “Christmas” features five original holiday songs but three of them do not feature Christmas anywhere in their titles.

I love this singer, although he is actually more of a crooner.   He is also an actor (roles as a swat commander in “Silence of the Lambs”, a fan of Phoebe’s in “Friends:  The One After The Superbowl” & Ed White in “From The Earth To The Moon” to name a few) and three of his own cable shows.  I have been a fan of his from day one (I could not resist his voice, his gorgeous blue eyes or his dimples) thanks to songs like “Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing“, “Wicked Game” and his cover of “Only The Lonely” which would without question have made Roy Orbison very proud.
