Track Listing

  1. A Christmas Song
  2. Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow
  3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

1. A Christmas Song

In the spirit of the season, MONKEY MAJIK decided to collaborate for their next single alongside Kazumasa Oda.  The track is quite We hear everyone singing in the song which is a nice tune and simple for everyone to sing.  I guess I was kind of expecting somethnig a little more from the track but it’s charming but honestly I wanted to hear more of Maynard lol.  Once Kazumasa joins in his voice sounds odd but good…strange song I guess lol.

2. Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow

The rest of the single is only sung by MOMAJIK and sung entirely in English.  Add in that both tracks are Christmas classics and you get a really good set.  The first is quite catchy and hearing both Blaise and Maynard (though Blaise is singing more).  It’s a pretty damn short tune though which is acceptable because the original isn’t a long song either.  I love the jazzy arrangement and both members sound delightful as they say in this song😄.  Great little track!

3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

YAY MAYNARD finally opening a track.  As the second of the well-known Christmas songs, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas is the ballad of the single and it’s just a really slow and yet nostalgic song for me.  The fact that this is a Maynard solo also pleases me because he sounds so good doing these quiet ballads.  Definitely a good thing to listen to!

 

 

Even though I doubt this single is the first for an era, A Christmas Song is a really pleasant single from MOMAJIK (though I doubt the two Japanese members had any part in this).  A Christmas Song is a good collaboration though but I felt that the B-sides really made the singles.  I loved the first ones joyous nature and the hearing that Maynard solo made it work for me as well.  Overall a good single ^_^
