As we here at Clizbeats.com prepare to celebrate the Christmas Holiday, we wanted to take a moment to spotlight one of most heartfelt Christmas songs to personally touch us in recent years. The song is called “Christmas Without You” by Onerepublic. Most folks wouldn’t think to notice thanks to keen and steady music marketing keeping their recent staple hit “Good Life” on our TV’s and radio’s across the country and internationally, but “Christmas Without You” marks the first original song to come from the band in nearly 3 years.
Released virally at the end of November, “Christmas Without You” got its best mainstream promotional boost when lead singer Ryan Tedder and his band mates performed the song for The President Of The United States and The First Family, at the National Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC, on December 1st. “Christmas Without You” is filled with the right balance of melody, personal reflection, and recognition of the value of family and friends during this and other tender time’s of the year, like birthdays Thanksgiving, and Valentines Day.
Onerepublic’s tune achieves a well penned balance of vividly expressed lyric’s that conjure up fond memories of past holidays, and our universal want to spend time with that special someone. In finding this blend, the song taps into the very fabric of the holidays that is at the cultural core of this time of year. Through the recent release of “Christmas Without You”, Onerepublic introduces us to an exciting new song, that has just the right amount of class and sophistication to trigger those nostalgic holiday feelings that come to us naturally when we normally listen to classics. It’s only a matter of time till everyone will want to add “Christmas Without You” to their overall holiday soundtrack experience.
You guys never disappoint. Congratulations on the truly wonderful song. It will soon become a classic.
