“Take a look to the sky just before you die…” Maybe you’ll see Santa’s sleigh?
I always wonder going into these things if I’ll hear Mariah Carey’s vocals over another band’s music or vice versa. In this case, it’s James Hetfield’s youthful growl from Metallica’s original version of “For Whom The Bell Tolls” over Carey’s backing track for the periodically inescapable “All I Want For Christmas”. The masher-upper used some ‘Tallica guitar, too. And by the end of the track I started craving Taco Bell. Still not sure why.
