Despite what I said yesterday, this Christmas song has two artists who have done wonders with it. The first version by the Contemporary Christian band Audio Adrenaline in 2002 blew me away. It takes a predictable carol and elevates it to one that gets you bouncing in your chair the way you would if a little drummer boy just started jamming.
This was my favorite version until I heard Josh Groban sing his 2008 version on Noel. It’s another stunning arrangement of the classic song. And the bagpipes draw me in every time.
Which do you like better? Or is there another stunning version that should be in the running?
