Have A MODern Christmas With Rod Stewart
Factfile - Rod Stewart
- Stewart's platinum album, Merry Christmas, Baby, featured duets with Michael Bublé, Mary J Blige, Ella Fitzgerald (mix) and CEO Lo Green. It peaked at #2 in the UK, #3 in the US and #1 in Canada.
- Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow held the number 1 spot for 5 weeks in the US.
Rod Stewart might be a little more haggard than he was back in his prime, those golden 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy' days, but he has proved to be an exceptionally enduring artist. Seems more than a little odd then that his first Christmas album only arrived in 2012 given the boost such things can give to those performers who might be past their sell by date. But arrive it did and 'Merry Christmas, Baby' proved that there was still plenty of life in the old Roderick. The album produced Stewart's 3rd US number one with single 'Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow' and it managed to hold onto the crown for an impressive 5 weeks. The album itself was a huge success and became the bestselling Christmas album in 2012, no doubt helped by Stewart’s appearance on Michael Bublé’s ‘Home For The Holidays’ TV special that December.
For the most part 'Merry Christmas, Baby' is an album of covers that are true perennials, but Stewart also went the extra yard by co-writing an original called 'Red-suited Superman'. And it proved to be one of the highlights, with Stewart offering a genuinely affectionate ode to the plump one. The singer had on previous albums displayed a knack for inspiring duets and on 'Merry Christmas, Baby' he didn’t buck that trend with Michael Bublé joining him on 'Winter Wonderland'. On ‘What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? Ella Fitzgerald’s vocals were seamlessly added to the mix and in a move that could almost be described as leftfield Cee Lo Green joined the Scottish man for the album’s title track. It all added up to make a classy affair and on this evidence you’d wonder why it took him so long to hit upon the idea.
Come over here baby, let's watch the snow fall, Check out the North star, didn't it start it all? It's still shinin',that's a miracle, So Santa bring some hope to us all
