You have to hear it to believe it
A mash-up of the 100 most popular Christmas songs has surfaced online.
‘The Chaos Carol’, which you can listen to below, splices Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’, Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’, Pentatonix’ ‘Hallelujah’ and a host of other festive hits together.
Its creator Petter Rudwall explained the art behind his musical monstrosity in an essay.
“Me personally,” he wrote. “I’ve always had a hard time wrapping my head around Christmas Carols. I dunno, might be something with the joyful, yet plastic, tone to the songs, or simply the happy-go-lucky vibe. Can’t stand it. Save me.”
