Check this bright and shiny new remix of Kylie Minogue’s new “Every Day’s Like Christmas” (from her new album Kylie Christmas) by Mike Stock, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman.
This marks the first mix in decades that reunites Kylie with the legendary producers that she worked with at the very start of her career.
Watch for Kylie’s Christmas concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall on December 11th – her first ever headline show at the prestigious venue. The show will be filmed for TV.
Regular readers of The Randy Report know I love holiday music.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I officially get to share some of my favorites over the next few weeks.
From last year’s Holiday Wishes by the luminous Idina Menzel – “Do You Hear What I Hear?”
Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen releases her cover of Wham!’s 1984 holiday hit “Last Christmas” today on all major digital outlets.
And next up, Carly will star as iconic Pink Lady, “Frenchy,” in GREASE: LIVE which airs Sunday, January 31st on FOX.
Christmas comes early for Kylie Minogue fans as she shares the first single from her upcoming holiday album, Kylie Christmas.
Duetting with Late Late Show host James Corden, “Only You” is a cover of the 1982 hit by Yazoo.
About the track, Kylie says, “As a fan and friend, I’m so excited to have James Corden duetting with me on the song ‘Only You’. He suggested the song for my Kylie Christmas album and I just knew he would sound amazing on it. It’s so subtle and lovely and I think it will surprise a lot of people.”
The full album drops this Friday, November 13th. You can pre-order the album now and get “Only You” immediately at iTunes.
Having done my “12 Days of Christmas Music” lead up to Christmas Day, I thought in the aftermath of the big holiday I’d share this quick and fun video of “31 Things You Didn’t Know About Holiday Songs” from the vlog Mental Floss.
Some fun facts here. And it moves quick for those like me with a short attention span.
Christmas Day, so I’ll post a couple more holiday music vids – just because 🙂
And how can you go though the Christmas season without this one? My pal Billy Porter (still knocking it out on Broadway with his Tony Award-winning performance as “Lola” in KINKY BOOTS) sings “O Holy Night” like no one.
Merry merry, kids!
For the 28th (and sadly final) Christmas, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Darlene Love visited David Letterman and The Late Show to perform her iconic holiday hit “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”
What began in 1986 with just a four piece band evolved to this final epic performance which includes nearly a dozen backup singers and a horn section. Best of all, she plants herself atop the piano for the final triumphant chorus sounding just as powerful as she did when she recorded the song in 1963.
Love says she will not perform the song on TV ever again.
Five members of the Warwick Rowers serenade you with Christmas carols (in their underwear) and explain the history of their best-selling calendar.
So, you may not tune in for the carols but the vision (and view) of the calendar can’t be beat.
