Who the hell is this and why they try to destroy one of my favourite carols?
I really think they were deliberately trying to ruin Christmas.
It destroys any liking you have of it so you dont pine over the coming year.
I mean they're singing the right tune and Terry Wogan's putting a little bit of feeling into it. And you can accept it's a charity single and not a professional singer.
Josh Groban apparently decided the tune actually wasn't good enough and that he ought to alter it slightly to show off his voice a bit and it ended up being a horrible horrible exercise in a vocalist showing off at the expense of actually singing the song.
Have you ever seen the full version of the Bowie/Bing Crosby version with the skit at the start? It's half brilliant, half-cringeworthy...
Is probably my favourite christmas song
than i thought he was this afternoon
