John McLeod Classic Christmas song sounds (plenty of bells and a sax solo) with very 2020 lyrics. "The worst Christmas ever is still better than any other day." Stuart Rook is promising more new material next year. This is some taster.

Merlee Tomlin This was entirely unexpected, and it is a fantastic song to add to my christmas list, right up there with Father Christmas by the Kinks! Yes... I actually do love that song.

Also have to say how great it is to hear Dickon's voice in there since I haven't heard any Careless Sons in a long while.

Also, is that Comic Book Guy?

Bit of fun. What a year.

lyrics

WORST. CHRISTMAS. EVER.

I broke down in the street
As we browsed non essential items
Through the shop window of Curry’s
From a sub-mandatory distance
With limited mitigations
I was begging for mercy.

When you said
That we can
Never be together
There’s no ho-ho-hope.
This is the Worst. Christmas. Ever

Oh but the worst...
Yeah the worst ever Christmas
Is still better than every other day!
So with god as my witness
(I swear I’ll never be religious)
Oh the worst ever Christmas
Yeah the worst ever Christmas
Is still better than every other day

You toyed with your mask
As I took you to task
Over your two dimensional reading of “loneliness”.
And as you said I would be fine
That I could see my friends online
The horizon disintegrated slowly slowly, yes

I’ll pray
For the strength
To keep it together
No chance of furlough. No.
This is the Worst. Christmas. Ever.

Oh but the worst.
Yeah the worst ever Christmas
Is still better than every other day.
So with god as my witness
(I swear I’ll never be religious)
Oh the worst ever Christmas
Yeah the worst ever Christmas
Is still better than every other day

And if we can't be together
This is the worst Christmas ever!
But I swear it's still better
It's just better
Than every other day
