“Warm This Winter” – Gabriella Cilmi

It’s mid-November, and already the radio stations are playing Christmas music. In the past few days I’ve heard the usual songs played at this time of year, such as “All I Want for Christmas is You”, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, “Wonderful Wintertime” and “Last Christmas”. It may be a little early to start hearing them, but when I think about it, I participated in some Christmas shopping three weeks ago; if I’ve done the shopping, it’s certainly not too early for the music.

One song, which I have not been able to get out of my head since I first heard it three days ago, is “Warm This Winter” by Gabriella Cilmi, an Australian singer:

“Warm This Winter”, released in 2008, is a cover of Connie Francis’ hit single I’m Gonna Be Warm This Winter” from 1962. Cilmi’s version changes a couple of the beginning lyrics, but her cover is otherwise the same as the original. Both are fitting tracks for the Christmas season, and hopefully they’ll be as much as an earworm for you as they have been for me!
