Always thought "Christmas Wrapping" was by Blondie

What a fool I was.

I thought it was by the cranberries at one point (because it mentions them)

Shit! I always thought it was Christmas Rapping. Been embarrassing myself in freestyle form for years.

I have got The Cranberries and The Cardigans mixed up in the past. Thinking about it, those are both quite festive band names tbh tbf…

in 2016 I had the sax riff in my head for about 4 months before I finally figured out where it was from. pleased with that.

“Christmas Wrapping” but every line is Are you hanging up your stocking on the wall?

One of my favourite Homes Under the Hammer moments was when this was played during a sequence where a semi-detached home was being knocked through to become a single dwelling.

Gravel Pit by Wu Tang Clan pretty much any time someone has a gravel drive.

Sadly their amazing lead vocalist Patty Donahue died at 40 in 1996.

This is their other absolute banger, and a freaking brilliant idea for a song.
