Song of the Week: "The Christmas Waltz"

SamuraiFrog's Essential Christmas Songs #22. Sinatra recorded a few versions of this, but this is the one I like better. This whole album, actually, is great, precisely because it sounds so dark and echo-y and spare. I love that feeling in music. I can't really even define it well. But that feeling of sounds coming out of the dark. I actually never even heard this song until I was an adult--no surprise, since my Mom had a specific set of Christmas music she liked to hear and she does not like Frank Sinatra at all--but now I don't go a Christmas without it.
