# 45: Carrie Underwood - Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

As far as I know, this is the only Christmas song on my countdown, but it's not a bad thing at all.

This version was on the Carnival Ride - Christmas EP and I absolutely fell in love with it when I first heard it.

Of all the versions of this song that I've heard, this has got to be the best.

The melody of the song itself is very standard Christmas song, but what makes it so amazing is the arrangement, the country/pop-like instruments and the delivery, Carrie's smooth, super-clean but powerful voice that just flows through the already brilliant song.

It starts out with an amazing intro then Carrie's clean vocals come in and the song just becomes one of the most beautiful songs of the year.

Seriously, this song made me want Christmas to come sooner, it's an amazing song to play during the run-up to Christmas!
