December 18th: “When Christmas Comes to Town” Matthew Hall / Meagn Moore

“When Christmas Comes to Town” is a song from the film, The Polar Express, performed by Matthew Hall and Meagan Moore (as Billy and Hero Girl respectively). In the film, shortly before the train arrives at the North Pole, Hero Boy and Hero Girl notice Billy looking out from the back of the observation car and singing the song. Hero Girl joins in after the first verse.

During the credits, it is the third song to play, after the film’s title song and before “Believe”. It is also featured on the official soundtrack as the second track and the official score as the ninth track.

In the song, Hero Girl sings about the joys of Christmas while Billy sings about how he has never been able to experience these joys.
