Get in the festive mood with an amazing version of Creep, mixed with Carey's seasonal classic.

Christmas is just around the corner, so what better way to get in the festive spirit than with... Radiohead?

Now, we know they're not the first band that springs to mind when you think of yuletide, but one YouTube genius has created the perfect mash-up to get you in the mood - as Thom Yorke and co's biggest single is blended with Mariah Carey's Christmas earworm.

Radiohead - Creep But It's All I Want For Christmas Is You By Mariah Carey (2020 Mix)

Titled Creep But It's All I Want For Christmas Is You By Mariah Carey, William Maranci has taken Thom Yorke's 1992 ode to unrequited love with the pop icon's 1994 festive favourite.

Pour yourself a mulled wine and get listening.

Maranci admits that he was partially inspired by a solo ukulele cover by Zach Sanders from back in 2015.

All I Want For Christmas Is A Creep

However, it's not unheard of to see people attempt to mashup Mariah Carey's festive hit. In fact... over the years, a Mariah Carey Christmas mashup has become almost as much of a festive tradition as Turkey and cranberry sauce.

Don't believe us? A short YouTube search proves just how many songs have been put together with the Christmas hit and some of the combinations are even weirder than Creep.

Listen to Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas mashed up with with My Chemical Romance's Welcome To The Black Parade below:
