Hanson mention for Best Christmas Songs

By | November 30, 2008

‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’
–U2 (1987)
It’s been covered by Cher, Hanson, Death Cab and Jon Bon Jovi, all of which makes sense: the song manages to be sassy, juvenile, shut-in and Jerseyish at once. A standout by Darlene Love on ‘A Christmas Gift for You, From Phil Spector,’ U2’s bighearted version trumps the original, not least because it features Love on backing vocals.
