Justin Bieber, ‘Someday at Christmas’ – Song Review
Remember the good old days? You know, when Justin Bieber was still the swoop-haired, cherub-faced little boy with a voice like an angelic chipmunk? This Christmas, the Biebs takes us back to that special time with an old cover of ‘Someday at Christmas’ from the deluxe edition of his holiday album, ‘Under the Mistletoe.’
Now, it’s not that that we don’t love man-Bieber — what with his deep bellowing voice and questionably sexy lyrics and all — but there’s just something about kicking it old school, especially around the holidays. Call it tradition.
As we listen to this classic track, from Stevie Wonder’s 1967 holiday album with the same name, we can practically see the Biebs’ hair glistening in the moonlight as he sweetly belts the words across a peaceful blanket of snow … Or so we imagine.
“Someday all of our dreams will come to be / Someday in a world where men are free / Maybe not in time for you and me, but someday at Christmas time / Someday at Christmas we’ll see a man / No hungry children and no empty hand / One happy morning people will share a world where people care,” he sings, forever staying true to his charitable attitude.
This ‘new’ version of ‘Someday at Christmas’ seems to be a cleaned-up rendition of the pre-fame video that Bieber tweeted on Oct. 20, only polished to appear like it was done in the studio back in the day. Big Beliebers may remember that their favorite ‘Baby’ singer brought out this Stevie cover back in 2009 when he performed at a Christmas concert for President Obama, which was aired on TV.
There’s no denying that this kid, has — and has always had — some serious vocal talent, and we’re glad we don’t have to wait until Christmas morning to unwrap this classic Biebs tune.
