Oh Holy Night By Who?
One of my favourite Christmas songs is ‘Oh Holy Night’. I like this song so much that I got carried away and purchased the too-many different versions of it. If a singer that I like sings it, I buy. Aaron Neville’s sweet rendition in his honey-like voice, Mariah Carey’s diva-like rendition, Michael Bolton’s, yes I used to like him, soulful spin, and a few reggae versions of it as well. By the way, reggae Christmas music is the best! So too is reggae gospel music. Enough digressing. I collected Christmas albums too. Boyz II Men Christmas album, Luther Vandross, Hip-Hop Christmas mix Album, Classical, Country, you name the genre, I have it. Even Clay Aiken’s! And Justin Bieber’s!
The funny thing is, I have never listened to any of these albums in their entirety. Really, how many times and ways could I listen to ‘Oh Holy Night’? So it’s back to old trustworthy I go. ‘Natty Christmas’ by Jacob Killer Miller, now deceased. This is a really good reggae Christmas album and is even on a 25 Best Christmas Album List. Check it out here. I also found that I own most of the albums on that list! I am officially a Christmas Music Nerd slash Geek!

I have enough. Plus CDs are so 90s. I’ll stick to my Natty Christmas and have a Irie Irie Christmas! I suggest you do the same but it’s just…
