Fav Xmas Songs: Mary's Boy

And now to spice up my list with a little Caribbean flavor. I know this isn’t exactly the most traditional Christmas song, but I guess that’s why I love it even more. Not many people associate Caribbean music with Christmas (unless you happen to be on a Christmas cruise to the Bahamas). So a song like this is especially unique and memorable, and thus one of my favorites. I’m not sure which is my favorite part: the steel drums, or the “Oh my Lord!” chorus. There’s another rendition by Harry Bellefonte, but this one by Boney M is my favorite.
