Advent song for December 16: Tinsel and Lights

Welcome to Crooners’ Sunday! This title track from Tracy Thorn’s 2012 album is most like a benign take on Fairytale of New York, but it has echoes of at least a dozen other Christmas classics, because Tracy Thorn is a brilliant songwriter as well as a beautiful singer. This one is best enjoyed with a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine, which coincidentally is exactly what I’ll be having shortly.
