Have A Rock and Roll Winter With Wizzard

Factfile - Wizzard
  • I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday peaked at #4 in the UK charts in 1973.
  • In 2000 Roy Wood (lead vocalist) released a spoof with the Wombles - I Wish It Could Be A Wombling Christmas.
  • The '73 single sleeve credits Miss Snob and Class 3C with "Additional noises".

The cash register noise at the start might be a nod and a wink to the commercialisation of Christmas but that’s where the negatives end as Wizzard’s 1973 song ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ is amongst the most pro-Christmas songs you’re ever likely to hear. And hear and hear it you will given its ubiquitous nature each December since its release all those decades ago. We’ve always wondered who made the high pitched yet muffled kerfuffle at the start before the main vocals kick in but the only clue that’s out there can be found on the sleeve art which says that additional noises were created by Miss Snob (sounds more like Miss Piggy to us!).

Wizzard were led by Roy Wood who had a spectacular career in music having founded the Electric Light Orchestra with Jeff Lynne, sang backing vocals for Jimi Hendrix and led 60’s rock icons the Move. Wizzard was his glam rock project and their Christmas song proved to be the highlight of their 3 years as a band. 1973 proved to be a memorable year for Christmas songs with the result that Wizzard were kept off the coveted Number 1 spot on December 25th by Slade’s ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’.

Although not at all aimed at the Christmas market Wizzard released a track in early 1974 called ‘Rock 'n' Roll Winter (Loony's Tune)’ which could certainly have serviced the seasonal market given some of the tenuous Christmas associations certain songs have gotten away with down the years. Then the tills would certainly have been ringing for Wizzard.
