I do love covers, but the original here is genuinely solid, so the less transformative versions1 are gilding a lily. I would rather see covers of the Christmas songs that are too bad to like but which are still inexplicably popular. I’m talking real musical2 improvements to:
- The Christmas Shoes
- Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer
- Do They Know It’s Christmas?
- Wonderful Christmastime
- Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
- Christmas In The Northwest (if you don’t live in the blast radius of this one, be grateful)
Looking at this list, I’m wondering if Gryla cursed the Beatles or something.
