With “Miracles in December” ranking #2 on the Gaon Chart for digital singles and #3 for online downloads for the first week of December, it only makes sense that it would win the spotlight as my Tune of the Week.
What’s more impressive than how well this song has done on the ranking charts, is how incredibly beautiful it is. The perfect blend of harmony that endears the boys of EXO to us all, set against a backdrop of melodious piano and sorrowful strings, combine to create a song that conveys so much emotion I can’t listen to it without feeling like I’m going to cry. Of course, once you read through the lyrics, you realize this beautifully sorrowful song is all about the pain of a lost love and from then on you can’t listen to “Miracles in December” without feeling it tug on your heartstrings.
The Korean version of “Miracles in December” features EXO-K’s D.O. and Baek Hyun and EXO-M’s Chen, while the Chinese version features Baek Hyun, Chen and EXO-M’s Lu Han. If, like me, you’re always on the lookout for a new Christmas tune to add to your collection, you can’t go wrong with EXO’s sorrowful ballad, “Miracles in December,” though I warn you, even Ebenezer Scrooge shed a tear after listening to this one!
