We felt so young, it was just like Christmas

Speaking of sleigh bells, it's Low's modern classic, "Just Like Christmas", from the predictably titled EP, "Christmas". Low are generally known for their funeral dirge-like songs, so this is a very upbeat number in comparison. I love the sleigh bells and the timpani drums. Well, they sound like timpani drums to me. I also like the way the guitar comes in at the end, and Mimi's voice is just lovely. What more could you ask for?

Listen:

Certainly one of my favourite Christmas songs, but I listen to it outside of Christmas too. Just wonderful.

I hope there's going to be a Beach Boys appearance...
