Not to ruin anybody’s holiday spirit but I’m not a big fan of Christmas songs. However I must shamefully admit that Wham’s “Last Christmas” is one that I’ve listen to a lot growing up, and is still one that I actually can stand. It’s a bit more gloomy than your average Christmas-carol, so maybe it’s not that odd that The xx decided to cover this holiday classic at a recent BBC Radio 1 session. The cover is very true to The xx’s trademark minimalistic concept and I’m glad to hear that it works surprisingly well. So here is probably this year’s number one Christmas song (to be honest, the only one I can remember hearing).
