Tis' the season for artists to cover the Christmas classics and spice up the same tracks we hear year after year. Here are ten of the best to rock around the Christmas tree to, perhaps? Peace – Last Christmas Covering the Wham! Classic, Peace got into the Christmas spirit with a festive video featuring Blaine Harrison of the Mystery Jets. Also The XX – Last Christmas Taking to the Radio 1 Live Lounge, The XX take a haunting direction. Dog Is Dead – Wonderful Christmastime The Nottingham quintet accompanied their take of the Paul McCartney track with a slightly strange video and a lot of silly string. Tuxedo also added some funk and disco to the track. Orla Gartland – Orla Want For Christmas Is You A cheerful mash up of Christmas tracks with a clever pun of a title. What more could you want? Sam Smith – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Angelic vocals, can we predict a Christmas album next year? Probably. Summer Camp – Christmas Wrapping Offering their take on The Waitress' favourite Summer Camp add a nostalgic vibe. DZ Deathrays – Lonely This Christmas Australian garage DZ Deathrays have punked up the previously sickeningly sweet Christmas tune. Kate Nash – Silent Night A poignant and echoed cover of Silent Night, from the woman who previously released 'I Hate You This Christmas.' Pulled Apart By Horses – Merry Christmas Everyone They’ve added rock and screaming layers to Slade. Merry Christmas Everyone.
