Yes, Tom Petty’s version is amazing…but “Christmas All Over Again” by Butch Walker and Taryn Manning is simply sublime.
It’s just raucous and joyous and loose and fun. Love the ELO-like backing vocals and whole vibe of the song. Its just infectious. And who is Taryn Manning (note to self: find her music – love her voice)? Her voice is perfect with Walker’s.
I’ve got an mp3 – can’t remember how I got it – and the only version on You Tube its the soundtrack to some guy’s video about Christmas. But that’ll work in a pinch.
