The beginning of the 70s saw the Christmas comedy song theme continue into the twee and then fun.
At the charity radio station where I first played the Christmas no1s, People rang in and pledged to have a record played. While I was playing Long Haired Lover, someone rang up and offered us £20 to turn it off!!
Slade are going to be forever in and out of the charts at Christmas time with this single. I think that this song has become more well known than any traditional Christmas song.
Here's the next two songs;
Little Jimmy Osmond - Long Haired Lover From Liverpool
Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody
