Thanks to The Kinks for one of my favorite Christmas songs - one that did not get much airplay back when it came out. Probably due to the depressing subject matter of the song, but damn if the tune isn't a killer knock-off of Pete Townshend circa "Tommy".
Without further ado, from 1977 here is "Father Christmas":
But the last time I played Father Christmas
I stood outside a department store
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
And knocked my reindeer to the floor
