Some songs are great songs that can be sung by anyone with talent and turn out great. But some songs people own. As far as I am concerned, Nat King Cole owns The Christmas Song. Maybe I think this because it was a favorite of mine growing up, maybe it’s because it fits his beautiful voice perfectly, I don’t know. But I do know that when I hear anyone else sing it, it just doesn’t sound right. In my land of fantasy, I think he and I make it a great duet.
I’ve attached the original video of Nat King Cole singing this song on good ole balck and white TV. If you’ve never seen this clip, it’s worth a minute or two.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYOQard11J0
