2015 Christmas Countdown Day 4 – Por Chonlawit
Who doesn’t love familiar songs in different languages? I kicked off the annual Christmas countdown with a Vietnamese version of the classic “Jingle Bells” so how about a Thai rendition of another classic – “Joy to the World”?
On the fourth day of Christmas, the song I gift to you is พระทรงบังเกิด (Joy to the World) by ชลวิชญ์ (Por Chonlawit). This version has a few EDM undertones, but not enough to make it unbearable. I hate it when ballads are turned into EDM tunes or vice versa and then the song’s flavor is lost and the new version is kind of awful. Not so in this case as there’s a nice balance.
