This is the second time before Halloween I’ve used a Christmas song. Stop judging me! #Sorrynotsorry 😀 😀 😀

It doesn’t bother me to post holiday songs because I play them year-round, and this is one on my writing playlist. And, I love this movie! I never dreamed I’d one day watch a live action version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas as a kid watching the animated version, but Jim Carey nailed it!

Originally titled Christmas, Why Can’t I Find You?  this tune was co-written by James Horner and Will Jennings for the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas in 2000. A full-length version of the song, was renamed Where Are You, Christmas? This version was co-written by Horner, Jennings and Mariah Carey with additional lyrics for the film’s soundtrack. The song was originally recorded by Carey, but because of a legal case with her ex-husband Tommy Mottola, it could not be released, so it was re-recorded and released by Faith Hill..

A video was released featuring Hill singing from the Grinch’s mountaintop home, interspersed with clips from the film and a cameo appearance by Taylor Momsen as Cindy Lou Who.

FUN FACTS:

  • As of December 2018, Hill’s version was approaching one million digital downloads and placed seventh on the list of all-time best-selling Christmas/holiday digital singles in Nielsen SoundScan history.
  • In the movie, Where Are You Christmas? is sung by Taylor Momsen, who played Cindy Lou Who.
  • Where are you Christmas? only reached #65 on the US Billboard Hot 100 but went all the way to #10 on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

Enjoy!
