Let's Run and Have Some Fun Now Before I Melt Away

Christmas songs are funny things. There are those that we cannot stand (I've got a few, as ungrinchy as I try to be) and those we sing along with every chance we get. Then there are those that seem to belong to the singer - The Christmas Song belongs to Nat King Cole, Blue Christmas belongs to Elvis, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas belongs to Judy Garland, White Christmas belongs to Bing... I'm sure you can think of more!

Now, there are many who may argue that Frosty the Snowman belongs to Ella Fitzgerald or even Jimmy Durante and, it's true, their versions are amazing. But I'm going to have to say my new favorite version of that song is Fiona Apple's sweet and simple version. What do you think?



I hope your holiday weekend is off to a wonderful start!

P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!

  1. Great post! And I agree with you: that's a wonderful rendition! Thank you for sharing! She really conveys the sad part of the story, which I think is quite appropriate (although it makes me a little teary!)
