December sees all kinds of bands bringing out covers of better songs, mostly to their own detriment. You CAN’T do a better version of Christmas [Baby Please Come Home] and you simply shouldn’t try.
But Fun. are a band whose ridiculous throw-everything-in attitude meshes especially well with Christmas, which elevates their rendition of Sleigh Ride to something almost on a par with the original. It’s brash and over the top and very silly, really – perfect for a Christmas morning, then?
