Warm up to Christmas by listening to the beautiful carols performed by Eurovision artists. Each day until Christmas features a new act giving their version of a Christmas song. As 23rd, we listen to an untraditional Greek version of “Last Christmas”
The band One represented Cyprus at the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest. They finished 6th with the song Gimme. The band was active from 1999 to 2004. Part of the band was Constantinos Christoforou who had previously taken part in Eurovision in 1996. With the song Mono Yia Mas, he came 9th. After the band split up, he once again returned to the contest. In 2005, his Ela Ela (Come Baby) finished as 18th.
Last Christmas is a song most know very well. It was a big hit by Wham in 1984, and is still today one of those Christmas songs, you can’t avoid. This version by One is however quite different from the original with the verses now made into rap! And of course, it is in Greek.
