What’s not to like about this song? And again, there are no obvious trademarks identifying it as a Christmas song (other than the lyrics, of course, which are terrific) – no bells or choirs. It wasn’t even originally composed as a Christmas song – the lyrics were changed afterwards. But this deserves all the airtime it inevitably gets each year.
And no, I didn’t say: “Noddy, yours is my third favourite Christmas song ever!”
