Forgotten Christmas Songs, Part 3

The Christmas you get you deserve?

Perhaps only the 1970s and a voice like Greg Lake's could produce this next song.

Its mixture of pseudo-profundity and vagueness seem perfectly matched to Lake's bombastic voice that seems to be saying something really amazingthat you can't quite put your finger on. (Which is all the more appropriate since the lyrics were written by Peter Sinfield, a poet, songwriter, and co-founder of King Crimson.)

I used to hear this all the time on the radio, but it seems to have fallen out of favor recently.

But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy it now... even if it's just a guilty pleasure.
