Over The Rhine - All I Ever Get For Christmas Is Blue
[youtube=http://youtu.be/SwZC9w5M_cs]Genre: Blues, Slow Jazz, Acoustic Piano, Christmas
This song is taken from the album Snow Angels.
Over The Rhine don't like to be classed as a 'Christian Band' but they are both Christians and in a band so by that definition they are. The Ohio band Over The Rhine are the married coupling of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist. They aren't overtly vocal about their faith but in interviews they occasionally discuss it and it certainly shows through in some of their songs. This is a beautiful little blues song, it's content clearly stated in the title, and although it may be bluesy it still has that sat beside the open fire sound to it. I love a good original Christmas song, especially one which breaks the mould and this does just that in a wonderfully stylish way.
