Something tells me this might not be the only battle on this song. I don’t care.
A couple of weeks ago in my M4 “Xmas Music Xtravaganza 2018” post, I included Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home For Christmas”, which he released in 1960 and reached #1 in 1972. A number of acts have covered it, most notably The Eagles in 1978. I’ve picked a couple that I like, and would like to know which you like better.
Jon Bon Jovi Bon Jovi covered the song for the 1992 album A Very Special Christmas 2, and it charted in the UK (#7) and Ireland (#6) in 1994.
Kelly Clarkson Kelly covered the song for her 2013 album Wrapped in Red, and it reached #6 on the US Adult Contemporary chart.
Okay, you know what to do: first, listen to both of these, decide which you like better, and vote by leaving a comment below, announcing your pick and a little abut why, if you’re so inclined. Next, visit Stephen’s Battle of the Bands blog and vote in his battle, and finally, visit all the other BotB participants (the list, with links, can be found in the right-hand column on Stephen’s blog) and vote in their battles. Remember, you don’t need to be a BotB participant to vote. I’ll announce the winner next Saturday, December 22, so have your vote in by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Jon and Kelly!
