“Last Christmas” by Wham! has a special place in the contemporary Christmas music canon and countless artists have covered it. The song appears on Gwen Stefani’s holiday album You Make It Feel Like Christmas and the No Doubt frontwoman stopped by Fallon to perform it live.
Stefani’s take reimagines the ’84 New Wave single as an early Sixties girl group track, with the singer bolstered by strings and soaring background vocals. Stefani’s version of the George Michael-penned track also appears on her You Make It Feel Like Christmas.“To write and be part of [fans’] holidays … musically, that would be my dream,” Stefani told host Jimmy Fallon. “It kind of sounds like a No Doubt record in a way.”
