If there is any justice, this will be Christmas Number One
For any Maccabees fan (or anyone else) this lives well up to expectations of what a good Christmas song should be. Essentially what they have managed to do is distill down the haunting charm of the original and perform their version with their usual power. All the tweeness is gone, and you are just left with the most beautiful song.
The only slight slight criticism is that they didn't include more of the original lyrics and that it is sponsored by SEAT. But this does feel like a christmas single for people who actually like music. Matt Cardle is for the X Factor audience (i.e morons), and the Surfin' Bird is for the 'rebels'. If you just want a brilliantly performed song which both chills and warms the heart then this is for you.
Am so glad they've released this...absolutely beautiful live cover version. Loving the vocal harmony on chorus. Genius alternative xmas single.
pretty damned amazing
they've taken what was a pretty lame aled jones song and turned it into something broody, mysterious and doors-esque. this is the proper way to do a cover - build it from the ground up into something your own. nice
