Christmas Through Your Eyes (Gloria Estefan)
Co-written by Estefan and superstar songwriter Diane Warren this was the only new track on Gloria’s 1993 Christmas album. But the song itself wasn’t NEW new, having appeared on Estefan’s Greatest Hits collection the year before. While it’s wonderful to hear her tackle a range of classic festive songs the strength of this mid-tempo ballad makes you wish she and Warren had collaborated on at least one or two more new Christmas tunes.
Fun fact: This was released as a single, as a double-A side with the mega-mix/mash up Miami Hit Mix.
The theme for Bestest Song Club December 2015 is: Bestest Modern Christmas Songs.
Criteria: Song must have been recorded no earlier than 1980.
