The Twelve Essential Tracks of Christmas, Day 10: Mannheim Steamroller's "Silent Night"

The Twelve Essential Tracks of Christmas, Day 10: Mannheim Steamroller's "Silent Night" January 3, 2014

Mannheim Steamroller’s last entry in this series was their rockin’ “Good King Wenceslas.” But Mannheim Steamroller can do much more than just rock out. This closer from their debut album is far and away their best mellow cut. The background “oooohs” are clear and unpretentious behind the haunting opening bars on piano. Then around 2:00 is where the arrangement really transcends, at the entry of the violin. The rest is pure magic, with dry ice at the end to remind us that yes, this is still the 80s.
