CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN Day 11: Winter Wonderland (Steve Taylor)

SONG: Winter Wonderland
ARTIST: Steve Taylor
ALBUM: Christmas (compilation)
AVAILABILITY: Amazon Marketplace (CD)

This full-on mariachi arrangement of "Winter Wonderland" is actually one of the first versions I can ever remember hearing, so to me, it's always just felt natural.  It's by Steve Taylor, the satirical pop singer/songwriter/producer best known as the guy who finally made the Newsboys good.  (WHERE ARE YOU NOW, STEVE?!)  He also produced Sixpence None The Richer's self-titled album, which included the mega-hit "Kiss Me."  Currently, he's working on the upcoming Blue Like Jazz movie.
