Fri, 09 Dec 2011 09:37:47
'80s singer Richard Marx -we loved him even when he had an unironic mullet, since his voice is dreamy- is resurrecting his solo career with the release of The Christmas EP, a five- song set of holiday classics like "O Holy Night," "Silent Night," "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," and "Alleluia," plus a new track, "Christmas Spirit," which can already be heard in Hallmark's 2011 Holiday promo spots. Get into the "Spirit" by going here and enjoying the lyric video.
This festive EP will lead up to the Feb. 7 wide release of Stories to Tell, his new deluxe album featuring acoustic versions and original recordings of his greatest hits. Stories to Tell also includes a live DVD, recorded at the legendary Shepherd's Bush Empire in London. Yeah, we want to hear the acoustic versions of hits like "Endless Summer Nights" and "Right Here Waiting."
But get yourself all festive and egg nog drinking by listening to "Christmas Spirit." Learn the lyrics, too!
How much did you dig Richard Marx's "Christmas Spirit?" It's a new holiday standard sung by one of the most definitive stars of the '80s!
