It’s the beginning of December, so that means Christmas season is officially upon us (although some folks started a good two months ago). That means that many of our faves are looking to add some holiday cheer to their sound with a few Christmas tunes. You can count Robin Thicke in that number, who offers up his romantic effort “Perfect Holiday.”
Robin is hoping for a comfy and cozy Christmas with his honey on the track. But first he has to get the sound right. He does so with a jaunty, yacht rock-inspired piano groove set up at the song’s onset alongside the traditional sleigh bell that has to be included for it be considered a Christmas song. From there, he lays the love on thick (no pun intended) as he sets the scene. “Can you see the lights, they’re glowing / As they’re wrapped around the tree / I see the champagne flowing / Baby, cheers to you and me,” he sings. “I see the mistletoe / Ooh your lips, they taste so sweet / Can you save a kiss / Save a kiss for me.” The pace gets picked up to almost disco levels as the drums amp up and he invites us to celebrate on the chorus. Despite the slight change in tempo, he doesn’t forget to gift us with his flawless falsetto as he ushers in the season.
With Robin Thicke already offering us his latest album On Earth, And In Heaven earlier in 2021, “Perfect Holiday” is a nice musical stocking stuffer as we head into the most wonderful time of the year. Unwrap his gift early when you check out the stream and the song’s lyric video right here.
