As part of my top 10 favorite Christmas music videos here in 2013, here’s #4 – Sarah McLachlan’s ‘River’ (link opens iTunes). I like it because it’s most reminiscent of the original Joni Mitchell version.

‘River’ was first recorded by Joni Mitchell on the ‘Blue’ album in 1971. The song is a reflection on the ending of a relationship near Christmas time and has been re-recorded many times by a wide range of artists. IMHO, none better than this version by Sarah. You can find this Sarah McLachlan version on her album Wintersong.
