To mark the countdown to Christmas, every day we will feature a festive song. From the well-known to the more obscure, each tune is sure to help you to get into the Christmas spirit!

casablancas - i wish it was christmas todayI Wish It Was Christmas Today – Julian Casablancas

The Strokes front man Julian Casablancas has gone all out to capture the flavour and essence of Christmas spirit. This cover version of Saturday Night Live’s I Wish It Was Christmas Today is fresh and unpredictable.  Casablancas had certainly not skimped on the sleigh bells throughout this three minute joyous belter, and sounds almost giddy with excitement during this pacey performance.

The Last Night singer has created yet another musical miracle with a definite and almost tangible fun and festive feel.
