Every Day’s Like Christmas (Kylie Minogue)
Every Day’s Like Christmas sounds remarkably like Kylie singing a Coldplay song and that’s exactly what it is – Kylie fronting a great new Christmas number written by Coldplay lead Chris Martin. It’s a wistful festive track, radiating with typical Kylie positivity and sparkle. The original, produced by Norwegian producing team Stargate, appears on the album Kylie Christmas. However, Minogue requested that her one-time producers Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) reunite to create a special remix for her. SAW last worked with Kylie in 1991 and hadn’t worked together as a trio for at least twenty years. They were requested to make it sound like a retro record with “nothing modern” – they definitely succeeded, turning an already great song into a slice of sublime 1980s pop.
Fun fact: There’s another Coldplay connection with the record – Stargate produced two of the songs on Coldplay’s 2015 album A Head Full of Dreams, including lead single Adventure of a Lifetime.
The theme for Bestest Song Club December 2015 is: Bestest Modern Christmas Songs.
Criteria: Song must have been recorded no earlier than 1980.
