Weekend Tune: Bah Humbug

23 Dec

The quality of this 30-year-old video leaves something to be desired – looks like someone uploaded the contents of a worn-out VHS tape to YouTube – but the Kinks’ “Father Christmas” remains a classic holiday tune.

Or anti-holiday tune, telling the tale – as it does – of a gang of kids mugging Santa Claus for his cash.

“We’ll beat you up if you don’t hand it over. Give all the toys to the little rich boys.”

Creepy chorus?

Well… not half as much as “He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake…”
