I was really quite surprised by this one. The driving, insisting beat of Jingle Bells is quite a departure from the traditional arrangement and brings to mind Gene Krupa on drums and the fiery swing numbers of the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Silent Night is a whole different kettle of fish, though. The lyrics have been replaced with the Hans Christian Andersen story of the Little Match Seller Girl who gazes into the window of a happy family having their Christmas dinner while she slowly freezes to death on the pavement. Dark! The Sisters singing is so beautiful and soothing over the familiar arrangement of Silent Night that you don't notice them singing 'the little girl sleeps in the snow' until the second listen. Imagine Christmas round Nick Cave's house.
