Summer Camp All I Wonderful Christmas Is You stream

Summer Camp, All I Wonderful Christmas Is You2 things. First, IT’S CHRISSSMAAASSS (nice one Slade) and secondly, yes the title for Summer Camp’s Christmas hit, All I Wonderful Christmas Is You, is intentional.

It’s a great smash-up combining Paul McCartney’s classic 1979 song Wonderful Christmastime with Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You. Although, most people don’t know that a big shout needs to go to Carla Thomas who put out a song called All I Want for Christmas Is You way back in 1966 (written by A. C. Williams in 1963 on Atlantic Records) with the same name and theme as Carey’s. Vince Vance and the Valiants also recorded a song of the same name in 1989.

It’s got Summer Camp’s own sound running through everything, which works really well. They released their debut album, Welcome to Condale, earlier in the year filled with nostalgic 80s pop.
