10 December: Nancy Wilson: That's What I Want For Christmas

Published December 10, 2019

We haven't had much romance so far in this year's Advent Calendar, but let's change that with the aid of Nancy Wilson. 'That's What I Want For Christmas' was originally released as a single in 1963, but doesn't seem to have become much of a hit at the time. A shame, for the song is great.

It has gained a little more prominence in recent decades, thanks to its inclusion on Capitol's Christmas Cocktails compilations. Which, of course, is where I heard it.

Listen here.

Nancy Wilson shows exactly how much she wants what she wants for Christmas.
