What a bloody bassline! Up there with Norman Watt Roy's sublime walking on "Hit me with your rhythm stick", and also the musical magic that was the calling card of the late, great Bernard Edwards on the records by Chic and Sister Sledge. Bassheads rejoice! A Xmas record you can't not nod your head to!
Perfect tale of a Bridget Jones style character and her bumbling attempts to get the guy before her yuletide happy ending, wrapped up in a festive bundle of saxophone and sleigh bells. What's not to love? Fantastic in 1981, fantastic in 2013 and undoubtedly fantastic in the Christmases to come.
