04 December: Carpenters: Merry Christmas Darling

Published December 04, 2016

This Advent Calendar usually devotes itself to songs that are a bit unusual in style or not so well-known, and perhaps Carpenters' 'Merry Christmas Darling' doesn't quite fit that description. But who cares when the song is as lovely as this one - the vocal harmony arrangement towards the end is to die for. Originally released as a single in 1970, 'Merry Christmas Darling' was also included on the 1978 album Christmas Portrait, and performed on the television special The Carpenters: A Christmas Portrait the same year.

Listen here.
