Advent 2008: All That I Want and Stars

Offered today for your holiday pleasure, a brace of songs by the pop-folk duo The Weepies: "All That I Want" and "Stars." One might argue that the latter is not really a Christmas song, but last year Old Navy used it in several of their holiday commercials, so I say it counts. "All That I Want" -- which was also featured in a holiday ad last year, for J. C. Penney -- is a genuine Christmas song, and a very sweet one at that. (The AMG review calls it "mournful," but I disagree.) Here's your chance to judge for yourself!
