366 Songs 354: Father Christmas

I love the (uncomfortable, unconvincing) attempt that the Kinks made with this late ’70s song to try and be relevant in the era of punk. There’s a real sense of old men wearing the latest fashions and looking ridiculous to this song, which just seems oddly appropriate considering the family feeling that Christmas brings… Not that these other versions sound much better, it has to be said…
