There are certain songs that I have to hear every Christmas to make me happy. Tonight we have two of those that I haven’t heard yet. Boney M‘s “Mary’s Boy Child” and the Johnny Mathis version of “Do You Hear What I Hear”. There’s kind of a theme here.
There are many covers of “Do You Hear What I Hear, but of all the ones I’ve heard none have topped the power Mathis gives to his version. It’s my favorite version of my favorite Christmas carol.
I was hoping to have a video review for Christmas Eve like I have, but I had to choose one Christmas project over another thanks to everything that’s happened this year, and Captain Yuletide was half-done already. I’ll try to have the review NEXT week, but I’ll try to have something cool for you on Christmas Eve just the same. Meanwhile the entire BW Yule Log is available on the front page of this site until New Year’s Day, filled with song, skits, and cartoons for your holiday pleasure. Or you can see the playlist on my YouTube channel.
