Holiday Video of the Day, Part 2: Greg Lake, “I Believe in Father Christmas”

George Lang Published: December 23, 2009

Near the beginning of the season, I featured U2′s version of this song from 2008, and it’s just fine, but the Christmas season gives us license to be a little sentimental, and Greg Lake’s 1974 original will always be one of my favorites. I was a prog-rock kid, and there is something about the holiday that seems to invite prog.

Also, for some odd reason, this seems to have aged well over these 35 years.
