One of the latest Christmas albums, released this year, comes from Cee Lo Green, who’s been a pretty creative force in music the past few years. A few of his tracks have been added to the “Christmas Present” playlist this year.
Words cannot express the joy found when I was going through the iTunes list, saw that The Muppets contributed on a track, and that the track samples “Mahna Mahna.” The track, the single from the album, exemplifies the kind of fun Cee Lo had with the album ,as well as the fun there is to be had by a listen. It’s a nice addition.
A straight take of “This Christmas,” paired with bizarre imagery, makes this a fun watch, but the music itself is classic soul.
I like the subtly amped up beat on this ballad treatment of “Silent Night.” Solemn, yet gives the song a bit of weight.
And of course, the Muppets’ original “Mahna Mahna,” for those who’ve never seen it.
