Zooey Deschanel, the gorgeous actress from movies like well..."Elf" "Almost Famous" "The Good Girl" and "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" is easily worth the price of this CD alone. Why she doesn't cut an entire album is beyond me, judging from the reviews of this CD a lot of people would buy it. She has a very sexy, kind of classic voice. This CD isn't that bad, as far as the other songs on it; Christmas classics you know. But, it wouldn't be the same without her.
1. Louis Prima "Pennies from Heaven"-5/5-A very jazzy/swingy song. It's really catchy though.
2. Ella Fitzgerald "Sleigh Ride"-5/5-I love this song and I love the way Ella Fitzgerald sings it.
3. Lena Home "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow"-4/5-I like this song but I'm not a big fan of how Home sings the song.
4. Ferrante and Teicher/Les Baxter "Sleigh Ride/Santa Claus Party"-5/5-The first part is an instrumental version of "Sleigh Ride". The second part is
"Santa Claus Party" which is a funny christmas song which is damn cool.
5. Zooey Deschanel & Leon Redbone "Baby It's Cold Outside"-5/5-This is a really cool song and Zooey Deschanel has a gorgeous voice. It was for Deschanel that I bought this album. Her voice is flawless and she sings this beautifully. I wish she would get into the studio and cut an album.
6. Jim Reeves "Jingle Bells"-4/5-It's Jingle Bells. Nothing more to say really.
7. Brian Setzer "Nutcracker Suite"-5/5-Very well done instrumental. Too long though.
8. Leon Redbone "Christmas Island"-5/5-I had never heard this song before, but it's pretty interesting.
9. Eartha Kitt "Santa Baby"-5/5-This song cracks me up. I've heard this song countless times, but I never bothered to check out the lyrics. Good song.
10. Leon Redbone "Winter Wonderland"-5/5-Awesome song. Redbone's voice sounds different on this song.
11. Eddy Arnold "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"-5/5-Arnold does a great cover of this song. I would've been happier if they would've put the cast of "Elf's version of it on here" (mostly due to Zooey Deschanel's voice featured on it.)
12. Billy Preston "Nothing From Nothing"-5/5-I had never heard this song before and this is not a Christmas song, per se. But, this guy Billy Preston has an interesting voice so it all works out.
