- ARTIST: Blue
- SONG: Lonely This Christmas
- ALBUM: Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word (2002, Innocent/Virgin)
Originally recorded for one of the first ever BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge sessions all the way back at the start of their career in 2001, Antony, Duncan, Lee and Simon gave a soulful, stripped back take on Mud’s 1975 festive chart topper with consummate ease. For a song that was originally written by Mud as a bit of a joke, this tale of December set heartbreak has remained a Christmas classic ever since.
