Blind Guardian - "Merry Xmas Everybody" (Slade cover)

Το single των Blind Guardian "Merry Xmas Everybody"
Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
It's the time that every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red nosed reindeer?
Does he turn up on his sleigh?
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?

So here it is
Merry Christmas
Everybody's having fun
Look to the future now
It's only just begun

Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you've got the room
To spare inside?
Does your Granny always tell you
That the old songs are the best
Then she's up
And rock 'n' rollin' with the rest

So here it is
Merry Christmas
Everybody's having fun
Look to the future now
It's only just begun

What will your daddy do
When he sees your mama
Kissing Santa Claus?
Aha

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
Are you hoping that the snow will to start to fall?
Do you ride on down the hillside
In a buggy you have made?
When you land upon your head then you've been slayed

So here it is
Merry Christmas
Everybody's having fun
Look to the future now
It's only just begun

So here it is
Merry Christmas
Everybody's having fun
Look to the future now
It's only just begun

So here it is
Merry Christmas
Everybody's having fun (It's Christmas)
Look to the future now
It's only just begun


Οι Blind Guardian μας εύχονται ενόψει Χριστουγέννων διασκευάζοντας το τραγούδι των Slade, "Merry Xmas Everybody" (από τον δίσκο "Crackers: The Christmas Party Album" που κυκλοφόρησε το 1985. Οι στυλιστικές επιλογές των μελών της μπάντας στο σχετικό βίντεο είναι "όλα τα λεφτά"...

Hansi Kuersch: «In my opinion, Slade created the ultimate Christmas song with 'Merry Xmas Everybody', a timeless, jolly tune with the perfect dose of cheesiness and almost untouchable in its greatness.

Usually, it is prohibited in the Kuersch household to play Christmas songs prior to the Advent season, but as it's mid-November now, and I am just out of the studio doing this cover, I guess I'm breaking a tradition.

What you are about to hear now, is our attempt at paying tribute to the glam rock Santa Clauses Slade and while the original version is just perfect, its chorus was tailor-made for Blind Guardian as we do understand quite well how to go big.

So, why have sausages with potato salad when you can have the Xmas goose? Well, check it out yourselves and Merry Xmas Everybody!»

  1. Μπήκα για να κράξω γιατί δεν την παλεύω με τη μόδα των Χριστουγεννιάτικων αλλά το βίντεο με κέρδισε. Τυπάδες οι Guardian και βλέπω ότι ο Hansi έπιασε και πάλι το μπάσο.
