Kylie's cover of Christmas Wrapping, is truly tailor made for her and her version of it is just a joy-yes, am playing it yet again!
My feelings exactly. The original tracks were wasted and all the promo she did have, was used on the same old tracks that are on almost every other Christmas album. Don't get me wrong, the covers were very well done, but still a wasted opportunity.Can't believe she went on Strictly and did Warm This Winter when Christmas Isn't Christmas... would've fitted the routine just as well and showcased the album, instead of getting loads of TV slots and singing the covers.
Sadly they forgot to include it on the album.
Seriously, what a bop.
The best song on the album for me.Every Day's Like Christmas is so special.
She did the right thing by doing well known covers that would interest the public. And it worked.
Would have liked at least one performance of the originals on promo though.I agree. I love the originals, Christmas isn't Christmas..., Every Days Like Christmas, White December...and they are the ones I keep going back to. But she'd have found it hard to get any original Christmas song off the ground. She was right to perform the covers in her promo slots and it worked well and led the album to gold sales.
I can see why Kylie didn't put all her eggs in one basket and push one song, especially as it seems to take a lot for a Christmas song to catch on these days. Unless there's a big playlist push or maybe featured in a big TV show/film, it's just not going to happen.
Interesting that Santa Claus Is Coming To Town is the song that is getting a playlist push this year. It's doing well on streaming. Last year I think it was At Christmas that had the boost and the year before that Christmas Wrapping.
She performed At Christmas on Jonathan Ross when the album was repackaged
