Samantha Fish’s new recordings of ‘Run Run Rudolph’ and ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ pay loving tribute to two of her favorite holiday tunes.
‘Run Run Rudolph’ is always such an upbeat song, we thought it would be cool to dip it in some noir,” laughs Fish. “I think it gave it a unique character that’s different from everything out there. I chose ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ because of my love for all things ’60s soul. It’s the biggest rock’n’roll Christmas song ever, and being a Darlene Love fan, I wanted a chance to put my heart and soul into it.”
