Michael Bublé – Christmas

I love Michael Bublé. He’s the modern-day Sinatra, the epitome of cool. Okay, maybe not quite, but he’s very suave and his voice is yummy. In fact, I love his music so much that T and I had our first dance at our wedding to “Everything.”

His Christmas album, simply titled Christmas, isn’t as exciting as I would have hoped. In my humble opinion, it makes better background music than it does a listening event. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not great, and there are definitely some highlights. One of my favorites is “Santa Baby,” where Michael changes the words so that the song actually comes from a guy’s perspective. Instead of asking for a ring, he asks for “cha-ching,” and among the other items on his list are a Rolex, a convertible, and the deed to a platinum mine. The album also includes several holiday favorites, like “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “Holly Jolly Christmas,” and “White Christmas” as a duet with Shania Twain.

But the best song on the album, hands down, is the smooth arrangement of “Feliz Navidad” that serves as the album’s musical climax. It begins with an introduction of “Mis Deseos” that builds into the main chorus of “Feliz Navidad.” The song continues to build in intensity, with a full choir eventually joining in. Words don’t really do it justice, so have a listen for yourself. Try not to hit repeat, I dare you.
