For the month of December, I'll feature Christmas songs I adore for my "Tuesday Tracks". This week's goes to Ariana Grande's rendition of "Last Christmas".
I'm already a fan of the original, but Ariana's version adds some much needed pep and soul to the song. The verses are completely different from the original, but the chorus comes to life through Ariana's signature vocals. The staccato string hits and peppy beat transform the sad classic into a sassy tell-off.
I'm a fan of Christmas songs that aren't cheesy, and this is a love song disguised as a holiday track.
