I Wish It Was Christ­mas To­day

Rough Trade

Last week I rounded up a few con­tenders for the Christ­mas No 1 spot. But here’s a Christ­mas sin­gle with chance of tak­ing the lau­rels. None­the­less, it might still be my favourite sea­sonal ef­fort this year. The Strokes front­man cov­ers this song from a Satur­day Night Live skit, which it­self may have been in­tended as a Strokes par­ody in the first place. How meta is that?
