Los Del Rio’s Macarena song is almost 20 years old, yet the Christmas Macarena remix is still played every year at every mall, shop, restaurant in Lebanon. We no longer have cassettes or even CDs, yet this 15-year old song still makes it to every Christmas playlist in the country. I know there are other songs that get played every year, but George Michael’s “Last Christmas” is a Christmas song and not a remix of some dance song like the Macarena is. In fact I don’t mind listening to “Last Christmas” for 5 or 6 times but I can’t stand the Macarena remix and it chases me everywhere I go.
Coco jumbo Christmas remix is still playing too…. my ears are bleeding
