Yesterday Emily posted a Slack discussion thread us lot here had in response to a question she posed about our favourite Xmas tunes. Specifically, she tried—valiantly but vainly; it was a battle lost before it was even fought, Em, you know what it’s like, trying to herd or hem this Brownian motion of a workforce—to get us to narrow it down to one. I tried to stick to the rules and chose The Pogues. Because of course. In my mind, there’s no contest.
Or at least, there wasn’t. But that was before I became aware of YouTuber Andy Rehfeldt’s mashup of his instrumental of Wham’s popalicious ‘Last Christmas’ mixed with Tom Araya’s unearthly vocals from Slayer’s thrash tour de force, ‘Angel of Death.’ Now? All bets are off.
