The Holiday Music Fest 2019
Today's Fest is all you want. Two completely different songs titled, "All I Want for Christmas is You" -- and both wonderful.
The first is the one that most people think of, Maria Carey's song, written in 1994. Though this is her version only in part, it's from an utterly joyous "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden and a sleigh full of singers, vibrantly edited together.
The other is a great song from Vince Vance and the Valiants, which was written five years earlier in 1989. They had a huge country hit with it, and have a nice music video of the song, but the video features a model filling in to lip-sync the soaring, raspy vocal by lead singer Lisa Layne. So, instead, I thought I'd post her in concert front-and-center on her own.
