As Christmas marketing begins these days as Halloween ends, At the Movies, the Scandinavian supergroup dedicated to making songs from 80s and 90s movie soundtracks, has released an adaptation of the classic WHAM celebration ! “Last Christmas”. Which is not in itself best known as a soundtrack song… but, well, you know it.
Guitarist Chris Laney states:
“Oh no! NOT THIS SONG AGAIN ?! Have you ever thought like that? I know I… and that’s why I felt we had to make our own version for the ATM, haha. I love Christmas. It’s my favorite season “I hope it will bring a little Christmas spirit to you guys. Pour a little eggnog or a glass of gluven and enjoy!”
In the movies are:
- Linnéa Vikström Egg (QFT, Therion): vocals
- Björn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra): vocals
- Chris Laney (Randy Piper’s Animal, Zan Clan): guitars, vocals
- Allan Sørensen (Royal Hunt, Pretty Maids): drums
