Christmas Music Countdown: Day 16

Posted by Dave Bow on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 10:00 AM

I previously asked if there was any pop songwriter as suited to Christmas music as XTC's Andy Partridge. Of course there is: Paul McCartney! Macca's shameless cheese is made for this time of year and, as a tireless McCartney defender, I feel obliged to include Wings' "Wonderful Christmas Time" in my countdown. Listen to Linda joyfully plunk that synth like it completely belongs in this song. She almost makes me go with it. Almost...

I also imagine that people who get super grouchy around Christmas begin to see everyone who is enjoying themselves much like Paul comes across at the start of this vid, poking his grinning face in everyone else's. Whatta goon!
