Best Holiday Song EVER?

You decide. A scientist from the Boston Conservatory claims he has created “the perfect Christmas song” after doing a whole lot of homework researching the themes of over 200 Christmas songs.

Musicologist Joe Bennett says he studied the lyrics, tempo, musical key, and vocals of the songs to come up with his own tune, “Love’s Not Just For Christmas.” He confides that holiday songs often have eight common themes: home; love; lost love; parties; Santa/his reindeer; snow/snowmen; religion; and peace on Earth. The song, recorded by the London Community Gospel Choir, mentions the word “Christmas” 21 times along with sleigh bells and numerous other holiday references, as you will notice when you click into it. While you are not likely to hear the song performed live here, the choir that recorded it is making the rounds of UK shopping centers to sing it throughout the holiday season.

Keith And Chris Sing-a-long Challenge

Recall — or learn as you listen — to “Sold,” a ’90s throwback radio classic from John Michael Montgomery as Keith Urban and Chris Janson jam it on Keith’s tour bus, as shared by Keith.

Here’s a primer of the 92-word, 23-second chorus: “And I said, ‘Hey pretty lady! Won’t you gimme a sign? I’d give anything to make you mine all mine. I’ll do your biddin’ and be at your beck and call.’ Yeah, I’ve never seen anyone lookin’ so fine, man I gotta have her, she’s a one of a kind. I’m goin’ once, goin’ twice, I’m sold on the lady in the second row. She’s an eight, she’s a nine, she’s a ten, I know. She’s got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes, and I’m about to bid my heart good-bye.”
