♪♫ Annie Lennox could make Christmas music cool
It's just about the time when every coffee store's stereo mysteriously gets stuck on the Christmas channel for the next ear-numbing six weeks. Thankfully, there is hope for the tried tunes of wintertime. Annie Lennox has shifted her dark and mysterious musical gaze onto a medley of songs for her new album, "A Christmas Cornucopia."
