“All I Want For Christmas Is You” has become a holiday season staple thanks to Mariah Carey.
As soon as Thanksgiving rolls around, we look forward to hearing the song on a regular basis. There is just something about a well-done Christmas song that cannot be topped. Our parents always loved playing Christmas music when we were growing up and now we see why.
Now that we have matured a bit, we find ourselves in the mood to listen to Christmas music all year round. That’s what makes this cover such an amazing one. It can be hard to fill Mariah’s considerable stilettos but this man is doing his best to provide us with a great spin on the holiday classic.
In fact, we are willing to bet that the queen herself would approve of this one. Danish musician Soren Boedker Madsen is one of the most gifted talents that we have come across lately and we have not been able to get enough of his take on the song. This “fingerstyle” cover is one of the merriest things that you are going to hear anytime soon, that is for sure.
A song like this is a surefire way to keep spirits high during the holidays and we hope that Mariah herself is willing to weigh in eventually. He uses an acoustic guitar to make the song his own, providing us with an interesting glimpse into his creative process.
This cover was posted as part of his seasonal tribute to the holidays and we are here for it. We will definitely be tuned in so that we can find out more about all of the songs that he has to offer.
It takes a lot of courage to follow in Mariah’s footsteps but it is safe to say that this man absolutely nailed it.
If you love Christmas music as much as we do, you are definitely going to want to check this one for yourself:SKM: below-content placeholder
