One more Xmas song in this century I like : 今世紀のクリスマス・ソングをもう一曲


   The other one I like very much among the Christmas songs in this century is “I’ll be home for Christmas” by Kelly Clarkson, a rock singer in the USA, too.  This song is contained in her Christmas album “Wrapped in Red”

Kelly Clarkson - I'll Be Home For Christmas (Audio)


.  This is a standard Christmas song and it is also contained in Carpenters’ album “Christmas portrait”, and, in my opinion, Kelly’s version is as good as theirs. This song was originally released by Bing Crosby in America in 1943, during World War Ⅱ. It was written from the view point of a soldier in a battlefield longing to be with his family at Christmas. I keenly feel how he hold someone dear so I’m filled with heartrending sorrow with the words “If only in my dreams”.

 ケリー・クラークソンの「My Life Would Suck Without You」を初めて聞いたときは,あまりのカッコよさに衝撃を受けましたが,こんなにしっとりとしたクリスマス・ソングも歌えると知って喜びました。

  I was amazed when I hear her “My Life Would Suck Without You” for the first time because it was so cool, and I was also glad when I know she can sing a Christmas song so gently.
