OK, for me christmas has just begun as this song just shouts Christmas to me. Ever since I was a kid, every time I've heard Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody" I've begun to get excited for December 25th, and seeing this cover from Brendan Benson was no different. Recorded as part of the A.V. Club s Holiday Undercover series you can watch Brendan's performance up top thanks to TwentyFourBit. Are you hangin' up the stocking on your wall? 'Cos it's 23 nights of pillow time until we eat our own weight in turkey!
