Bah Humbug, No That's Too Strong
If you thought that purchasing Mojo's Festive 15 in October represented forward planning how's about picking up Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses in a bargain bin in February with the sole intention of saving it for this week?
On the Ze label it was released in 1981 but first charted in the UK singles charts for 4 weeks in 1982 peaking at number 45.
I must admit that I thought it had much more chart success given the fact that it features fairly consistently on the radio at this time of year.
The b-side is a truly awful instrumental number. So here is a slightly less awful instrumental number.
The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
R.E.M -Deck The Halls
