Cheesy Christmas tunes are definitely one of my guilty pleasures. I totally love them provided that they are only played in December. It is December and Big J’s birthday is fast-approaching so here are some current (ish) covers of some of my favourite festive songs thanks to Radio One’s Live Lounge.
Bombay Bicycle Club’s version of my favourite Christmas carol is awesome. In the Bleak Midwinter gets me every time. It makes me emotional (if I were trendy I would say ‘totes emosh’) and it makes you think about the true spirit of Christmas. Love it.
London Grammar’s version of White Chistmas is not my favourite if I’m honest, but with that band name, they had to get a mention.
Ed Sheeran’s Fairytale of New York pales in comparison to the original by The Pogues, but it is Chistmas and who doesn’t love a bit of Ed Sheeran?
Last, but by no means least, we have Rita Ora singing Wham’s Last Christmas. I really like the funked up vibe it has and I will never tire of hearing this ultimate cheesy tune. I am also in awe of her eyeliner wings and the t-shirt homage to Sir George Michael is a nice touch.
