I’m kind of jazzed I found a live version of this Christmas cover from local heavyweights Jimmy Eat World. “Last Christmas” was recorded by Wham! back in 1984 and has been covered countless times since the original release. I have no problem admitting I did like the original version although back in the day it would have never been cool to admit that. 😉
Jimmy Eat World released its version back in 2001 as a two-track covers EP which included “Firestarter” from The Prodigy. The Last Christmas EP came out after the huge Bleed American album which of course featured “The Middle” and “Sweetness”. You can also find the song on disc two of the Bleed American deluxe CD reissue that was released in 2008.
This live version was from a show in San Diego back in 2012. Enjoy!
