A Christmas Carol is not only a hit song but also a hit video, according to the songwriter, the producer and the director.
In an interview with BBC World News, composer Michael Bublé, whose credits include The Nutcracker and John Denver, spoke about the meaning of his musical legacy.
“I was a very humble person,” Bublé said.
“We all are.
We are all the same.
We all had a chance to be very, very special.
I am still very humble about that.
It’s a privilege to be able to say that I was a part of a very special moment.”
I was born in the middle of a famine.
I’m a very, much older man now.
I can remember all the terrible things that happened, and I still remember them.
But that’s the truth.
And that’s a true story.
“A Christmas Story’ was written by Joseph and Mary Bartlett in 1928 and directed by Jack Nicholson.
It is credited as the most popular song of all time.
The song has been performed at Christmas parades and is featured in films such as John Carter, Cinderella and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“But I was never a producer on a film. “
The idea of making a Christmas film has always been a dream of mine,” said Bublé.
“But I was never a producer on a film.
I just wrote the lyrics and did the music.
I didn’t write the script.”
The song was originally conceived as a play, but when Bublé wrote it in his native New Zealand, the song became a musical, and he realised it was possible to produce a film based on it.
“It’s an amazing song,” Buble said.
“‘A Christmas Lament’ was really the first one to come to mind.
It became the first film to be made around that idea. “
So it’s been written as a song for the film.
It became the first film to be made around that idea.
I wrote it as a kind of a musical play, which it turned into a film.”
The story of Christmas is told from the perspective of a man called John.
The film follows his family and his attempts to make it to the North Pole in the year 2066, in which he finds a lost letter from his grandmother that describes the events of Christmas.
Bublé said he wrote the song after his parents had a conversation in which they asked him to write about what Christmas meant to them.
“My parents had this wonderful conversation, and they asked me what it meant to me to write this song about Christmas, and that’s what the song was about,” Bubble said.
“They didn’t say ‘this is how you do it’.
I wrote about the story of the people who have lost their loved ones and lost their lives, and their hopes, their dreams, their hopes and dreams are for us to share with the world.”
Buble said he was surprised by the success of the film and the response to it.
“It’s one of those things that, as I said, is a very personal song.
I was very, quite, surprised by how popular the film was.
I mean, I wrote the songs, and the film is based on them.
I don’t have any regrets.”
He added: “I think there is an opportunity to celebrate the story as we celebrate the holiday.
It was the most difficult time in history to live through. “
You need to look back on history, you need to go back to a time when there was not such a sense of joy and hope, and now it is so.
Now the world is in such a beautiful state.”
