Gem of the Week: “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings” by Barenaked Ladies ft Sarah McLachlan

My gem this week goes to “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings” by Barenaked Ladies featuring Sarah McLachlan.

As we near the holiday I like to get into the mood and  reflect on the best versions of Christmas classics; the more offbeat than traditional the version is the more I’m drawn to listening to it.

This song was off of the bands Christmas album Barenaked for the Holidays (2004). The album is decent if you like their style. I actually am not a big fan of their music in general but I have to give them props for making this a great cover. The mix of their quirky style with McLachlan’s angelic voice create the catchy and acoustic gem it is.

Last year I mentioned this one as a favorite in my post titled Less Overplayed Christmas Songs but this year I felt it deserved more focus.

Below is the link for the song shared from Nettwerkbackstage’s You Tube channel.
