Music Review – Christmas is L.O.V.E.

The Soundtrack to Christmas just got a Serious Upgrade

It’s the holidays… your fingers are sore from getting poked by pine needles, the stockings might be hung, but the cat just pulled them down (again), and you’re out of tape. On Christmas Eve.

Back away from the wrapping paper, put down the bows, and go listen to this song.

Christmas is L.O.V.E. is a fantastically zingy, magnetically cheerful new song from the brilliant songwriting duo of Kwesi Thomas and Karl Sanger, and brought to life by the crystal-clear power-packed voice of Rachel Thomas.

It’s the kind of song that reminds you of every good thing about Christmas. Family, hugs, the fizzy excitement of a little kid waiting for Santa, and the warmth of a holiday dinner.

It’s the kind of song that makes you want to get up and dance.

It’s the kind of song you put on at midnight because you’re a parent and you’re up really late wrapping presents and you need that shot of joyous energy.

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.

If Christmas cheer could be turned into soundwaves, this song would be it.

Scratch that.

If Christmas cheer could be turned into soundwaves that act like a triple shot of espresso that makes you feel happy…. Christmas is L.O.V.E. would be it.

The sound is unique – no eighth remake of Santa Baby here (nothing wrong with that, I just want something new) – and super catchy. Thomas and Sanger have a real knack for making lyrics that pop, and Rae handles them easily, in soulful pop style that just makes you smile to hear it.

Honestly. I can’t stop grinning.

Did I mention this is a kid-friendly song? Yep! (And there’s a video! A fabulously edited anime video! That’s on YouTube. And honestly, if you’re not following Rae Thomas on YouTube, you. Are. Missing. Out.)

If you’re looking for the kind of Christmas song that makes you dance, makes you sing along…. just makes you feel good… this is definitely one to add to the playlist.

It’s guaranteed to shake off your holiday blahs.

Grab it on iTunes or Apple Music and add it to your playlist now and grab back your holiday joy!
