johnandoliviaIt’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, though Australia doesn’t have a great tradition of Christmas albums.

But our two arguably most-loved artists have teamed up this year, to tackle tunes such as Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Silent Night and The Little Drummer Boy. Many of the songs are absurd in an Australian setting – Let It Snow!, Winter Wonderland, Baby It’s Cold Outside and White Christmas – but Farnham and ONJ are in fine voice, having fun and injecting just the right amount of seasonal spirit. Of course, an album is for life, not just for Christmas, and this collection will expire on Boxing Day… until next year, that is.
