Things Take An Emo Turn With This Cover Of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”
So we all know Mariah Carey has defied all odds and hit that level of fame where she can literally do nothing all year, only to have a majority of the western world remember she exists as soon as the calendar ticks over to December. Her Christmas tunes aren’t for everyone, but even we’ll admit that we dug this cover of her hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.
“Why the fuck would I want to listen to a Mariah Carey song, BLUNT?” we hear you spit from behind your keyboards. Well, this one has been reworked by Chase Holfelder, who’s been pumping out covers for a series called Major To Minor, in which – you guessed it – he takes a selection of popular, upbeat songs and puts a haunting spin on them by playing them in a minor key. Kind of like when you realise that all of your favourite pop-punk songs have really downer lyrics underneath the infectious melodies and gang vocal “whoa-ohs”.
As you can imagine, the formerly cheery Christmas song takes on an eerie feel, and you might even forget Mariah Carey had anything to do with it in the first place. Holfelder is also packing a mean set of pipes, which goes a long way towards helping his cause.
