Wham!'s 1984 hit "Last Christmas" is one of the true classics of the genre, a song that's so perfect that Tracey Thorn didn't dare touch it when she recorded her Christmas album earlier this year. Gloomy electro adventurers The xx are a bit bolder apparently, and played the song on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. Tracey Thorn may have had an excellent point when she claimed the original was perfect, but this version is, if nothing else, interesting.
