Bring in the festive spirit this Christmas with a silky smooth seasonal cover of John Lennon’s ‘Happy Christmas (War is Over) from Michael Tinholme and his Band of Legends. Released as a single from his immense Christmas album, ‘It’s Christmas Time in the City’, it’s just one of the amazing pieces of music from the album that’ll be sure to bring your festive feeling in without a doubt!
Diving right in, we’re instantly introduced to Michael Tinholme’s vocals and the brilliant, slow, smooth music by the Band of Legends, setting the perfect scene for Christmas, paying homage to Lennon’s classic wonderfully. With the addition of the backing band, giving angelic vocals to balance with Tinholme. Ending with a demonstration of powerful female vocals and a brilliant guitar solo, it’s the perfect crescendo that the song deserves. A genuinely fantastic tribute, it recreates a classic while making it entirely its own with a fresh approach that just works.
A brilliantly put together song, it has every element of the original that we love, but with a smooth edge that Tinholme brings with ease that makes it wholly his own. Yet another brilliant track from the album, this is a single that is hard to ignore. With Christmas just round the corner, this is absolutely the addition that we all need to the festive playlist this year.
