Song of the week #9
I can't think of a single Christmas cover that I love as much as Lawson playing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
It's so beautiful.
Last year I'm pretty sure I started listening to this in October, and I've done the same thing again this year. It's just such a stunning acoustic version of the song, and it has such a mellow, warm feel to it.
They recorded the song in 2012, and I think it was done live at Capital FM, if I remember correctly; I'm sure I listened to it live, sigh, the memories. Haven't seen Lawson live in over a year now, so I'm really looking forward to their new music, which is coming out very, very soon now, thank goodness (and hopefully will mean a lot more live shows coming up).
You should definitely check Lawson out if you haven't heard of them or listened to them before, as they've got the most gorgeous pop/rock/bit of country sound, and it's greaaaat.
There's a link to the video for Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas here; sigh, they're so wonderful.
Until next time.
