Clean Bandit - "Last Christmas (WHAM! cover)"
Last night I watched one of my best friends perform with the GMCLA and the surprise hit of the night for me was certainly their cover of this song. It reminded me of this version I'd recently seen, and fallen in love with.
Typically I shy away from songs that are "poor pitiful me" in holidays ... at least the ones that don't have some kind of happy or hopeful resolution, and so I had always avoided this song, because all I knew was the chorus. Then last night I realized this song is really about moving on and learning from your mistakes. Goodness gracious, what a revelation!
The real stars of this cover are the two lead singers. I can't find any info on who they are, so if you know please tell me!
So today, with the past gone up in flames and the future stretching out like the ocean, I choose Clean Bandit's Cover of Wham!'s "Last Christmas" as my, here's to another run around the sun, who knows where this journey goes, so many adventures yet to be had, song for a, the world is filled with wonder, emerald is the only shade of green you need to wear - leave jaded and envious in last year, light up like the beacon you are, Friday.
