We all know that the Mariah Carey version of this song (minus Justin Bieber) is the best and most adored pop Christmas song. While I am not the biggest Mariah Carey fan I do just jump for joy whenever this song is on the radio or my iPod. It reminds me of a fantastic evening in Solvang with my girls and makes me happy as can be.
When I first heard the Michael Buble version I just wasn't sure what I thought...but after 3 or 4 listens I realized it is a beautiful different take on "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and very romantic and perfect for a holiday evening with your sweetie. Michael Buble croons those poppy lyrics with a nice piano backup and it really makes me feel all romantic and stuff. Normally I would say don't mess with a classic, but this is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous stuff!
Two great versions of the same song is just fine with me when they evoke such different feelings, both of happiness! Also, please tell me y'all watched this on SNL!
