12 Days of Christmas Music That Doesn’t Suck, 2014 Edition (Day 8)

So don’t hate me for today’s post.

The first time I heard this song was in a movie, and I assumed it was a song written for the movie. It was a movie I really, really enjoyed (and highly recommend), and the scene where the song appears is crazy-charming and filled with warm fuzzies. I loved it.

Fast forward a year or so, and I hear this song on the radio. It’s being sung by someone whose music I don’t generally listen to. But I still love the song, and I like her version, too. I know this song annoys a lot of people — and I know this is in part because of who’s singing it — but I think it’s really fun in a way that lots of older carols just aren’t anymore. Maybe in a few years I’ll be tired of this one, too.

Just a spoiler alert: if you haven’t seen the movie Love Actually but are planning to, watching this scene is going to spoil some of the ending for you. Bear that in mind before clicking play, if you care about that sort of thing.

    1. I agree. I also love love love when he runs through the airport after her. Little piece of trivia: that kid actor played young Tristan in James Franco’s _Tristan_and_Isolde_ and is one of the teenage wargs leading Bran Stark in _Game_of_Thrones_.
