I just recently discovered Pink Martini when the local classical FM station added them to the playlist. Enjoy!
Kinda Manheim Steamrollerish...
Now, for We 3 Kings, there is only one definitive version:
Sorry It was recorded in the 70’s by Legends. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADbJLo4x-tk
You are right. I never liked that song but I posted this version to Facebook.
At least its not a dirge like they usually sing it.
My favorite little discovery this Christmas season has been Shane McGowan with The Priests and their cover of the Bowie/Bing Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth:
McGowan’s voice is so raw and earthy it has a discordant sound to it the first one or two times you play it, but it grows on you after the first few listens and you appreciate its compliment to the high polish of the Priests’ vocals.
I’ll check that out- Fairytale of New York brings back many fond memories of my misspent youth.
Same here. Shane does not look well these days. Of course, he never really did, lol.
