“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” – Ingrid Michaelson

Ah, Ingrid Michaelson. My love for her music never ceases. Around this time of year, people always post her fantastic duet cover with Sara Bareilles, “Winter Song”, which she was invited to play last year at the Obama Tree Lighting Ceremony for the President and his family. The President’s usually a fan of jazz. The fact that he chose Ingrid and Sara speaks to just how awesome their music is (or how much Michelle, Malia and/or Sasha love the song).

This year, however, she released a wonderful Christmas cover of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” (from the 1944 classic film Meet Me in St. Louis), a jazz-influenced minimalist ditty that features only Michaelson’s voice and a pulsing, jazzy electric bass accompaniment. A feature of many live shows around Christmastime, she finally, quietly, released it as a single.

I’m a sucker for good Christmas music.

Happy Festivus, readers!
