Christmas decorations may have hit the stores the day after Halloween, but with Thanksgiving less than a week away, we can all be sure to anticipate an influx of the holiday-consumer-extravaganza that the next few weeks will be. In buying your plastic Christmas wreaths and candy canes down the grocery store aisle you're sure to hear the many holiday classics, only this year you'll be hearing Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen's flawless cover of "Last Christmas." The 29-year-old has admitted to the heavy 80's influence on her latest release Emotion, so it's only fitting for her to cover the 1985 Wham! release. Jepsen doesn't stray far from the original, but adds a modern touch to the commonly-covered classic.
