What's This - Flyleaf

Christmas is almost upon us, and since all the malls a radio stations are playing Christmas tunes, why not here too?

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a must-see for me every holiday season. What I love most about this movie is the music, beautifully crafted by Danny Elfman. My hope is that more people cover What's This, bringing it up to the same level of Christmas popularity as other cartoon Christmas classics like You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch and Little Drummer Boy.

There are few covers of this one out there already, including this version by alternative metal band FLYLEAF. What sets this cover apart from the rest is the raw emotion in the vocal performance by lead singer Lacey Sturm. Lacey and the gang contributed this track to the Nightmare Before Christmas tribute album, NIGHTMARE REVISITED.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a rather obscure Disney Christmas cover!
