12 Songs of Christmas, Day 9


There aren't many well-known covers of Andy Williams iconic 1963 Christmas song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"—probably because that version is so iconic. The most notable version is Johnny Mathis's 1986 recording—because he's Johnny-freaking-Mathis and he makes every Christmas song sound good!
Here then is rock band First to Eleven's cover from last year. Not only do they turn it into a rock song, they also move it to a minor key and it sounds downright sinister in places. While it was recorded in 2019, it perfectly fits the mood of Christmas in 2020.
