Florence and the Machine and Billy Bragg – Fairytale of New York

My favourite Christmas song, and I think they’ve done a grand version of it – I especially liked the introduction of the harp to the piece.

Recorded specially for Rob Da Bank’s Radio One show.

Although it lacks the chemistry, passion and humour that is in the original, I think that, taken as a mellowed out version of the song, this is fresh, contemporary and gorgeous. Definitely my second favourite version of the song (which is certainly not a bad thing – you could never beat the original!)

Feeling Christmas-y now!!
