If you walk through your local shopping centre right now, you can feel it in the air. You can see it everywhere you look. That’s right. It’s what we call unbridled Christmas anxiety.
What we need right now is something to get us into the festive spirit. We’ve heard Wizzard and Slade’s Christmas hits a few times too many already this year and to be honest, we’re hankering after something new. Something that doesn’t make us want to punch our own ears to mince.
Even though My Chemical Romance covered Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You in 2004, that didn’t stop one YouTuber called Maddy from smooshing their Welcome To The Black Parade into the Carey original. While some mashups are as much use as a paper bath, this one hits that sweet, sweet spot.
Enjoy and remember, don’t leave your Christmas shopping too late this year. No-one wants something you’ve bought by pointing through a petrol station window and shouting, ‘Yeah, that one I suppose’ through the intercom.
