about

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" was written by Walter Kent (music) and James "Kim" Gannon (words) and made famous by Bing Crosby crooning the holiday classic. First released around Christmas in 1943, the song is written from the perspective of a soldier serving over seas during World War 2.

This dream-pop interpretation by Sentinel pays homage to Ice House, The Jesus and Mary Jane, the Cocteau Twins, and The Carpenters, along with all the many artists who have covered it.

lyrics

I'm dreamin' tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back home
I promise you.

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Strongly influenced by their mutual visions of 80's synth and 90's dream pop, the likes of Cocteau Twins/Smiths/U2/My Bloody Valentine/ Cure/ Flock Of Seagulls/Ocean Blue. ... more
