Awesome Old (Christmas) Song of the Week: "Winter Wonderland" by the Eurythmics

Winter Wonderland was first written in 1934.  According to Wikipedia, over 200 artists have recorded it in the last 80 years.  The Eurythmics version was released on the 1987 album "A Very Special Christmas," a record I consider the gold-standard for pop Christmas music.

Also, I always thought the Eurythmics were an 80s girl band led by Annie Lennox.  I just discovered that it was actually a duo consisting of her and a guy named David. A. Stewart (pictured).  That just seems weird to me.  "Eurythmics" is a pretty feminine sounding word.
