A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
You know, this is just about the only holiday song I will reliably listen to every year, despite being severely religion-challenged. Of course, having been hung up on Chilton since about '81, that makes sense.
It's joyous and genuinely pretty, everything a holiday tune should be.
One of my favorite Detroit bands in the 80's, the Hysteric Narcotics, did a great cover of it too. They had great holiday shows, which usually included a fantastic cover of the Choir's "It's Cold Outside". Unfortunately, their version isn't Youtubed. Here's the original.
Oh yeah, and that's the light show from the Grande Ballroom, if anyone follows Deetroit music history.
