Marc Martel and Plumb: Meredith Willson’s “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” (Cover) Music Review

Marc Martel and Plumb usher in the Christmas season with their rock cover of the Meredith Wilson song “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” Martel’s 2017 ‘The First Noel EP.’

Well, it is that time again. The time of year where we remember that Jesus Christ came to the world. It is a time to celebrate life, giving, joy, and forgiveness. Marc Martel and Plumb sing this version but gives it a rock twist. It is a celebration of the season and one that you can jam along with. Martel and Plumb have really good chemistry with their vocal talent, making it a good way to kick off any Yuletide season.

The music video is also very clever, with the two of them jamming along in flashy outfits with a Christmas tree in the background. It definitely matched the vibe of the song.

For those unfamiliar, Meredith Wilson originally wrote this song in 1951 for Plymouth Music. While a few bands played it to acclaim, it was Bing Crosby’s rendition that made it a pop culture staple for the Christmas season. Johnny Mathis would revive interest in the song in 1986 when he included it on his 1986 Christmas album. In 2011, Michael Bublé included it on his Christmas album and brought it back for a whole new generation.
