This Christmas day, I’m wishing you the true joy and peace that Jesus’s birth initiated so many centuries ago. It’s time to celebrate the greatest gift of all!
Once upon a time, there was a song. It was a fun, lighthearted song. The tune was catchy and the music video was campy. Many, many people liked it.
This is that song:
However, that little song became stuck in over-played pop music purgatory and grew sad because it knew it could be
than a Top 40 pop tune.
One day, a talented and very creative musician named Scott Bradlee happened upon the little ditty. He saw past the pedestrian exterior to the real potential hidden beneath the surface. He took the song and spiffed it right up with some classic jazz piano and cool percussion played by David Tedeschi. To complete the transformation, he added an upright bass and an exquisite bassist named Kate Davis. In the hands of these
magicians musicians, magic happened. The song shimmered and sparkled and truly became “all about that bass”.
The result is a small piece of perfection:
Having surpassed its wildest dreams, the little song lived happily ever after.
And once I heard it, so did I.
