It’s Christmas time. These days we will visit the greatest hits of Christmas rock. Today: Slade – “Merry X’Mas Everybody”
“Merry X’Mas Everybody” by Slade is one of those Christmas songs that have not been heard so much outside UK, but if you live in the UK, you will hear MANY times theses weeks.
Musically, the song isn’t necessarily the most christmas eminiscent, which is partly why it works so well: The harmony-heavy chorus makes it suitable for hoisting a pint in the pub or at Christmas dinner probably because Slade vocalist decided to convert “My Rocking Chair,” into a Christmas song after a night out drinking at a local pub.
