Why I Love Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)

My all time favourite Christmas song is Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End) by The Darkness.

Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)



There are many reasons why I love it. The cheesy AF video is definitely one of those reasons. But I think the biggest reason is the lyrics.

It's surprisingly one of my favourite love songs. Ever.

I love the way it's a bit like a private joke between a couple, rolling their eyes together at naff presents, being together on Christmas day, not wanting it to end. That they've spent so long apart and yet love each other dearly, and don't want the day to end even if they'll see each other again on New Year's Eve because how can they survive apart and OH MAN OK I'M CRYING NOW.

It's just so freaking lush, a gorgeous love story hidden behind over the top (excellent) guitar solos. It's so out there and brash and it's easy to hear the noise rather than the lyrics.
