Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 1

Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - "Christmas Eve Can Kill You"

"Christmas Eve Can Kill You", written by singer/songwriter Dennis Linde and made famous by The Everly Brothers in 1971, is the first entry in Erik's musical Advent calendar this December. The song is a sad reflection on how Christmas Eve can be a cold and lonely affair if you're down on your luck. This new version by Dawn McCarthy (known from the band Faun Fables) and singer/songwriter Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is arranged and performed in a timid and musically naked manner. Their voices blend perfectly, giving the lyrics an even sadder sheen. This is a masterful performance in every way.
