What is your favorite Christmas song? Okay, now what is your favorite recent Christmas song? Tougher question, isn't it?
Artists write Christmas songs and record holiday albums every year. This year alone there's releases from artists like Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, and Mary J. Blige covering the classics. But why do we always wind up hearing the same songs over and over again?
Chris Klimek wrote about that very topic in Slate and says while some people feel there are enough standards to fill the holiday season airwaves, it seems like Christmas music has a remake habit that rivals Hollywood.
Is there hope for a new Christmas classic?
