Not a lot of people know this, but there are an awful lot of deranged, fanatical people out there who have dedicated large parts of their lives to archiving all 150+ versions of Wham!’s festive classic ‘Last Christmas.’

Naturally, I’m one of them.

Until an unfortunate incident with a fried motherboard destroyed my collection, I had upwards of 50 versions of the song in my possession, from almost every genre imaginable. Granted, many of those imaginable genres are the sort of trashy pop nobody sane would ever want to imagine (although I will defend Whigfield’s version to the death), but there’s an awful lot of good stuff mixed in there.

Come to think of it, had I been more clever about this, I’d have scrapped the “12 Days of Christmas” idea and just gone with the “12 Days of Last Christmas.” Maybe next year. In the meantime, feel free to take in 5 of the best.

#1: Wham!

#2: Taylor Swift

#3:  James Dean Bradfield

#4: Oda Yuji w/ Butch Walker

#5: Rachel & Finn w/ the Cast of Glee

12 Days of Christmas: #1 - White Christmas / #2 – Popical Island / #3 – Last Christmas / #4 – Christmas in Harlem / #5 – All I Want For Christmas is You / #6 – Fuck Christmas / #7 – Merry Xmas Everybody#8 – Ferrell & Reilly / #9 – Shit Christmas Without You / #10 / #11 / #12

I understand, I feel the same way about the few dozen versions of Time After Time.

taylor's version is surprisingly pretty good. the majority of her holiday collection is below average though

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day you realised that was medically impossible and that you hadn't seen your fiancé for over a week.

You see, I wasn't going to refer to it as a JEW cover for obvious reasons...
