The Waitresses Serve Up A Christmas Classic

Perhaps it’s just us but we can’t remember the Waitresses ‘Christmas Wrapping’ being quite as popular back in the 1980’s or 1990’s as it is now. Perhaps it was the Spice Girls retelling of it in 1998 for the b-side of their ‘Goodbye’ single that rekindled the love. Now we could hardly imagine another Christmas without it, even if we think a minute or so could have been shaved off its 5 minutes without denting its impact.

The Waitresses were an experimental acts that were together for 6 years over the late 70’s and early 80’s. Chris Butler wrote the songs and Patty Donahue sang them with coherent gusto. Her vocals on ‘Christmas Wrapping’ are certainly bright and bubbly, a perfect fit for the season especially when the brass parts kick in. The song can’t be found on any of the Waitresses original recordings as it was written for the band’s label, ZE Records, and their 1981 Christmas compilation ‘A Christmas Record’. The same compilation includes original Christmas songs from such heavyweights as Suicide and Was (Not Was).
