Earlier this week on the Norwegian TV show Lydverket Lindstrøm, Ane Brun, and Thom Hell topped the list of the year’s Best Norwegian Artists. In celebration, they teamed up on a cover of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime.” Through the magic of technology, Ane actually delivered her vocals from Stockholm, where she now resides, but this video pieces all the studio footage together. It is probably my third favorite take on the tune, after Macca’s original and J. Lo’s.
Fingers crossed for 1349 covering Wham! next year.
