I find a lot of Christmas music sort of sappy. Not this song, although it has been sung in a way that I would call over-styled: too many breathy or warbling notes in one lyrical syllable. Maybe it’s just jealousy: I can’t hit any of those notes.
But this version is fun. Kick off Advent with a rockin’ version of “All I Want for Christmas” courtesy of James Corden and a gaggle of singers, some of whom I even recognized.
