Noël, C'est L'Amour
Contrary to what you might believe given my last couple of posts, when it comes to Christmas music, I'm totally in the traditional camp. (but I'm traditionally camp)
I love being enveloped in strings and harmonies while basking in lights and decorations. Jackie Gleason's super slow arrangements (they make Perry Como seem like Speedy Gonzales!), are the perfect accompaniment to a glass of scotch and a couple of nuts.
Two of my favourite french songs of the holidays are "Noël, C'est L'Amour", which my BFF Fanny brought to my attention and Roch Voisine's version of Petit Papa Noël from his Christmas album, L'Abum de Noël.
