Merry Christmas, folks
Admittedly, there are plenty of songs you’ll recognise immediately: there’s Summer Camp‘s hazy take on ‘Christmas Wrapping’; ‘Please Be Patient’, Feist‘s hilarious adaptation of the carol ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’; and Carly Rae Jepsen‘s glitzy rework of Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’.
Elsewhere there are plenty of brilliant original compositions, ranging in tone from Marika Hackman‘s festive answer to Chris Rea, ‘Driving Under Stars’ to The Chemical Brothers’ vibey ‘Snow’.
