17 December: The Puppini Sisters: Last Christmas

Published December 17, 2013

At the merest hint of 'Last Christmas' by Wham!, some people put their fingers in their ears and run in the other direction. I have to confess that I've always loved that track (a fantastic single with 'Everything She Wants' on the other side as well), and have never really grown tired of it.

Often you will find that when someone tries an alternate interpretation of a really familiar tune, it gets a little strained. Not so in this case. The Puppini Sisters' take on 'Last Christmas', included on their 2010 album Christmas With The Puppini Sisters, really works for me, making it a little more sly, for want of a better word, without overtly advertising that thats's what they're up to. And those harmonies are to die for. What do you think?

Listen here.
