Sometimes a song – no matter how brilliant it may be – is covered so many times by so many different artists that each successive version is simply greeted with a shrug. ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ could easily be included in this category: a wonderful Christmas classic, true, but one which has been subject to more interpretations (of varying quality, one might add) as to render itself stale.
