At the Movies (King Diamond, Soilwork, Hammerfall, etc.) Cover WHAM!’s “Last Christmas”
Because these days Christmas marketing begins the moment Halloween ends, At the Movies, the Scandavian supergroup dedicated to covering songs from ’80s and ’90s film soundtracks, have released a cover of WHAM!’s holiday classic “Last Christmas.” Which is not in and of itself best known as a soundtrack song… but, well, ya know.
Guitarist Chris Laney states:
“Oh no! NOT THAT SONG AGAIN?! Have you ever thought that way? I know that I have… and that is why I just felt we HAD to make our ATM version of it, haha. I love X-mas. It’s my favorite time of year and I hope this will bring some X-mas spirit to you guys. Pour yourself some eggnog or a glass of glühwein and enjoy!”
At 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
