It’s a snowy day here in St. John’s. I’m in a taxi on my way to Burin to celebrate Christmas with the Lundrigan clan. It’s driven by a friendly fella named Tom.
Turns out this is also Santa’s sleigh. The front is stacked full presents and we’re driving all over town dropping them off. Row after row of jelly bean houses, Tom honks the horn and hands out colourful gifts. Along the way the van fills up with people too. It’s a merry ride. Saint Nick might just be a Newfoundlander.
Nevertheless our ride has given me some time so I’ve devised the best covers of 2019. The reimagined “Crown of Love” is a real standout. And Chromatics can always be counted on for a great cover. The same goes for Brass Against. Happy listening friends
And here’s the originals playlist companion just for fun.
