Musical Advent Calendar: Day 8 – Thanks for Christmas

XTC recorded this holiday tune in 1983 under the pseudonym “The Three Wise Men” as a holiday teaser for Virgin. The B Side was the much weirder “Countdown to Christmas Party Time.” The song later appeared on the 1990 odds-and-ends compilation “Rag and Bone Buffet.” Again, there is no video for this song, but it’s so uplifting, we had to include it. The melody is sweet, but heartfelt.
