12 Plays of Christmas – Day 10 – Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas by Eels

23 Dec

This is one of my favourite Christmas tunes of all time – particularly at the point while Mark E Everett breaks it down and exclaims: “Baby Jesus, born to rock!”

It’s about positivity in the face of adversity, something Everitt, who’s  had his helping of family tragedies, knows more about than most.

Originally recorded as a b-side in 1998,  it also appeared on the quality alternative XFM charity compilation It’s A Cool Cool Christmas…more of which tomorrow.
