from CHRISTMAS WISH

written by  by Olivia Newton-John & Amy Sky
Spanish lyrics by Jon Secada

To keep going with the holiday spirit, we have selected an album by Olivia Newton-John entitled “Christmas Wish.” Released in 2007, “Christmas Wish” was a collaboration between Newton-John and Canadian singer/songwriter/producer Amy Sky.

These two talented ladies assembled a line-up made of traditional Christmas classics and very well done original tunes that they co-wrote especially for this project. The resulting album is quite appealing  and a perfect back-up for any Christmas celebration. The mood of the entire “Christmas Wish” cd is pretty much low-key with soft arrangements, rich orchestral work and smooth instrumental performances to support Newton-John’s familiar voice.

The album includes several duets with important names like Michael McDonald, Barry Manilow, Jann Arden and Marc Jordan who also happens to be Sky’s husband. One of these duets, “Everytime It Snows” sung with Pop/Latin star Jon Secada, has the participation of Newton-John’s old friend David Foster. Foster beautifully arranged the sweet, orchestral tune and also played piano and keyboards.

Lyrics

Spiraling and trembling
The snowflakes tumble down
Fluttering like angel wings
Like diamonds on the ground
Autumn leaves are gone now
Winter winds blow cold
But I’d dance through December
With your hand to hold
Oh It’s you I miss the most
Every time it snows
Carollers and revellers
Their songs are bittersweet
The streets are full but they can’t fill
The emptiness in me
Christmas lights are sparkling
But still they lack a glow
Everything reminds me

That you’re too far from home
Oh It’s you I miss the most
Every time it snows
Please come back regresso mi corazon
Please come back
Te extrano tanto mi amor
Back to me my love te neccessito te quiero
I need you here regresso mi regresso mi
I cry frozen tears
Spiraling and trembling
The snowflakes tumble down
Fluttering like angel wings
They fall without a sound
