What do Andreas Gabalier have in common with Dolly Parton, Jonas Kaufmann and Robbie Williams? Everyone feels the same urge in Advent. Or will Christmas albums also sound different in 2020?
The exclamation “O!” has been tried and tested as a starting point for Christmas carols for ages. With just one letter, it expresses a whole feeling of joyful astonishment. At least most. At Robbie Williams, the anticipation in 2020 sounds different at first. “O! What a wretched year” he sings while the bells ring in the background. But don’t worry: his message remains defiantly optimistic: “You Can’t Stop Christmas Time” is the name of his latest hit – even if Santa Claus has to keep a distance of two meters this year.
