I know it's corny but this is a fun holiday song.  I like this live version from 2007 better than the 80s original studio version.  Michael Sweet's voice got better with age.   Check him out at 0:46 - 0:51.  Merry Christmas to all.

While the Beatles are getting set to release The Christmas Records, an official release of the flexi-discs they sent out every year to their fan club, an extremely rare record – only three copies were known to exist – made by Paul McCartney for his bandmates at Christmastime in 1965 has made its way online.

It was found by Dangerous Minds, who also shared an interview with McCartney from 1995 where he talked about it. "I had two Brenell tape recorders set up at home," McCartney recalled in 1995, "on which I made experimental recordings and tape loops, like the ones in ‘Tomorrow Never Knows.’ And once I put together something crazy, something left field, just for the other Beatles, a fun thing which they could play late in the evening. It was just something for the mates, basically.

"It was like a magazine program," he continued, "full of weird interviews, experimental music, tape loops, some tracks I knew the others hadn’t heard, it was just a compilation of odd things. I took the tape to Dick James’s studio and they cut me three acetate discs. Unfortunately, the quality of these discs was such that they wore out as you played them for a couple of weeks, but then they must have worn out. There’s probably a tape somewhere, though.”

He appears to have been correct, and you can hear it above. The 18-and-a-half minute tape features McCartney doing an impression of an American disc jockey, introducing some his favorite records at the time. He plays, "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole, "Someone Ain't Right" by Peter and Gordon, "I Get Around" by the Beach Boys, "Heat Wave" by Martha and the Vandellas, "Don't Be Cruel" by Elvis Presley and "Down Home Girl" by the Rolling Stones.

"t was really a kind of stoned thing," McCartney told biographer Barry Miles.

This is so awesome...time-travel back to Christmas in 1974. So much better than the crap played in stores today.

Hugely tongue in cheek camp-ness. I don’t know about America, but in the UK a “bellend” constitutes the end of the male sexual organ....usually used in the context “you’re an absolute bellend”. Enjoy

The best Christmas song of all time. Terrific band the Pogues, and Kirsty McCall has the voice of an Angel. I’m from Liverpool, just across the Irish Channel from Ireland. I have plenty of Irish in me and grew up watching Irish music in the pub. Long live Shane McGowan

Imagene Peise aka The Flaming Lips. Imagine Vince Guaraldi's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" on acid.
