A great song that I vaguely remember is the song "December Will be
Magic Again" by Kate Bush, it's an original work by her, but it sounds
vaguely like a song I remember from the seventies. There's also the well
overplayed David Bowie and Bing Crosby version of "Peace On Earth/Little
Drummer Boy" (not that I don't like it, it just got lots of airplay).
"Christmas Wrapping" is also on here, which isn't really easy to find yet a
fun song to have on the disc.The bluesy version of "Please Come Home For
Christmas" by Pat Benatar is a definite departure in sound from most of her
popular work (although I hear she had an album that was very blues oriented).
What's nice about this compilation though is that the vast majority of the
songs are original works by the artists and not traditional works merely
reworkedd for the holidays. I recomend this disc highly.
