crazy ol' man

The one nonjokey Christmas song I actually like

This song was recorded by XTC under the name "The Three Wise Men". It's easily as sappy as most other serious Christmas songs, but it's just so darn catchy. Also, nobody's apparently heard of it, which means it hasn't been overplayed to death.

It's available on XTC's "Rag & Bone Buffet" compilation album. (One problem: the vocals are mixed kinda far back, and a little hard to hear if there's any noise in your environment. (Which I suppose makes the song mallproof! :} ))
