Christmas Music Countdown - #24

We began the countdown yesterday with Gene Autry's "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" and we move along to the next one each day leading up to the celebration of the birth of the Lord.

#24 is Johnny Mathis' rendition of "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". Most people are split in their opinion between Mathis and Bing Crosby's version, but Mathis has much more of a joyous sound in his rendition; Crosby sounds too down (and part of that is just how his voice is) in what should be a song that demonstrates a child-like joy of the approach of Christmas. Enjoy and make sure to return each day for the next song in our countdown!
