Hear Tegan And Sara Cover “The Chipmunk Song”

A couple of years ago, in a clip about the “How To” With Q guitar series, Sara Quin suggested that in order to play her “Walking With A Ghost” properly, you should make your voice sound “a bit like a Chipmunk and a bit like Cindy Lauper.” So, that in mind, her and her sister’s cover of Alvin And The Chipmunks’ perennial Holiday favorite “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)” shouldn’t be all that surprising. (Jars Of Clay’s take = more of a curve ball.) T & S’s version shows up on the 21-song compilation Gift Wrapped II: Snowed In.
