Now I know what a fool I’ve been But if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again
Taken from the song Last Christmas by 80s pop band Wham, from their final studio album Music from the Edge of Heaven (1986). Kept off by the The Power of Love by Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Band Aid’s Do They Know it’s Christmas?, the much-loved song has regularly charted and been covered by a wide selection of artists, including Jimmy Eat World.
Has there been a song that you were familiar with and then heard another artist’s take on it and been completely blown away? Including the times you actually liked the initial release? I thought I’d choose my favourites and see what you thought. Are you in agreement with many of the songs? Which ones would you add? As always your comments and suggestions are more than encouraged.
