Best Christmas Songs for members of The Beatles by Mr.Q Blog

‘Christmas Time Is Here Again’

The Beatles
Fan Club Single, 1967
Between 1963 and 1969 The Beatles treated their fans to a special gift at Christmas with a record that was unavailable elsewhere. This six minute dose of holiday cheer was originally recorded in 1967 as a fan-club record but wasn’t officially released until 1995 as part of the ‘Anthology’ series. Released on the ‘Free As A Bird’ CD single, this version gets edited down to three minutes but is still a favored number by fans of the Fab Four. Chances are, you’ll be humming it for days. Superimposed near the end of the song are some spoken word seasonal greetings that were taped in 1966, followed by one of John Lennon’s free-versed poems.

‘Wonderful Christmas Time’

Paul McCartney & Wings
Single, 1979
Simply having a fit yet? There’s no middle ground here, you either love it or hate it. It’s Paul and Linda being all lovey-dovey, repeating the same lyric over and over — “ding-dong-ding dong” — enjoying the festivities as only members of a band called ‘Wings’ can. Pure pop, pure Paul, pure synth delight. If you’re considering making a move under the mistle-toe this year you can’t go wrong if this song is playing. Go for it.

‘Happy Xmas (War is Over)’

John & Yoko The Plastic Ono Band
Single, 1971
If this song by John and Yoko doesn’t make you shed a tear at least once in your lifetime, you really are a grinch. This protest song about the Vietnam War has become a Christmas standard. It is based on the (1969) campaign that found John and Yoko renting billboards in major cities proclaiming “WAR IS OVER! (If You Want It) Happy Christmas from John and Yoko.” It’s produced by Phil Spector and features children from the Harlem Community Choir on backing vocals. It’s a song that poses the question “what have we done?” and the lyrics are double edged in politics and passion. It’s painfully honest, yet the message of peace is loud and clear and it’s one that we still hope for, 40 Christmas’ later.
Listen to ‘Happy Xmas (War is Over)’
