Buttkickin’ Holiday Songs: “I Believe In Father Christmas” — Greg Lake (1975)

I remember this one from the early days of MTV. It’s always stuck with me throughout the years: its earnestness, mostly, but especially its driving musicality. It builds into such a rich, epic crescendo, even if it’s a slightly haunting one. Everything is packaged, compartmentalized, and sold right back at you, until you’re left with sunken eyes and quizzical obfuscation. “The Christmas you get you deserve” — too true. Look deeper.
