OK, I know loads of people like this song, but please bear with me. There’s something about the repetition of Christmas songs that really annoys me. Every year, the same songs. You’ve heard them so many times that you can’t even evaluate them as pieces of music anymore. I know, I know, I’m taking it all too seriously.
To me, the melody of Slade’s “classic” is a bit too grim to for a Christmas song. Even the “everybody’s having fun” bit – substitute it for, say, “and I’m gonna shoot you dead”, and it fits just as well (if not better). I am quite aware that I am the only person in the Christmasverse who feels this way. Which makes it all the worse.
