NBC Sounds of the Season: The KT Tunstall Holiday Collection (2007)
December 13, 2007
Well at only 6.99, this was the second of three Target Exclusive Christmas CD’s available under the “NBC Sounds of the Season” music collection, that I decided to purchase. The third is by an artist named Taylor Swift, whom I never heard of, and don’t intend to buy. “NBC Sounds of the Season” is being released by Big Machine Records, Hickory Records and the Capitol Music Group in association with NBC Universal Video, Music & Product Development.
This project doesn’t compare to Elliott Yamin’s cd in any way, shape or form. Of the four standard holiday covers only three are tolerable to me.
I have to say this is a pass – put your money in your gas tank.
The track list is as follows:
1. 2000 miles – written by Chrissie Hind. Ordinary.
2. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – I can listen to this, but it is kinda painful in comparison to the 1963 release of the Phil Spector penned classic as sung by the fabulous Darlene Love.
3. Mele Kalikimaka (Christmas in Hawaii) – written by R Alex Anderson. Bing Crosby cover. Catchy, sing along melody. I like it.
4. Sleigh Ride – this is the best song on the CD IMHO. Love the toy piano played by KT.
5. Fairytale of New York – Written by ShaneMcGowan, Mitchell Paris
6. Lonely This Christmas – Written by Nicky Shin, Mike Chapman
