Musical Advent Calendar, Day 4

Carol of the Bells

The Bird and The Bee

This is one of the holiday songs I ike the least. There's something about that repetetive and uninspired melody that gets under my skin. I just don't like it.

And then I found this version. I have always said that if you're going to cover a song, make it your own. These folks did exactly that. They took that nasty melody and changed it based on a reharmonization of the chord structure. As that changes, along with it goes the melody.

The result is a surprisingly refreshing take on this otherwise hideous classic. The creativity behind it always makes me smile. Hopefully you will too.
