5.0 out of 5 stars Fun variation from the usual Christmas tunes December 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
I love how Shonen Knife makes this song their own with no excuses, but doesn't make it too loud or jolting for the casual listener who isn't familiar with their music. You don't have to try too hard to appreciate this fun version of the classic tune with the band's cute Japanese lilt. (Although I suspect they might not appreciate being called cute!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute December 22, 2011
Finally we get something fun! It's rather strange that an all-female group would call itself "Shonen" anything, since "shonen" means "young man." It's also obvious that the singers learned the song phonetically and have no idea what the words mean. But who cares about any of that? It sounds good, and it makes you smile. Enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous new version of a Christmas favorite December 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
I wasn't familiar with the group Shonen Knife, so I looked them up on Wikipedia: "Shonen Knife is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English."

The group's version of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" honors the traditional renditions of this classic Christmas tune, but they've put their own unique upbeat spin to it. It makes for a very catchy sound that begs for the listener to join in.

This is one of those what you see is what you get tracks. Play the sample and see for yourself. It's an old Christmas classic sung in its typical cutesy upbeat way. Read more
