It may have only lasted for a few years in the early to mid 1970’s but many of the songs from the glam rock era have remained popular to this day. And that includes a wealth of glam rock Christmas songs, some of which can be found on all of the best-selling Christmas compilations. Wizzard’s all encompassing ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ is one such, a Christmas song with more moving parts than a Hornby train set. With Roy Wood directing operations, unfeasibly loud percussion, sleigh bells aplenty, beefy brass passages and a children’s choir throughout this is surely the epitome of throwing the kitchen sink at a Christmas song. And it works to perfection!

Slade’s ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ is another that has sewn itself into the fabric of Christmas. Noddy Holder’s vocals just stop short of a scream which adds to the sense of occasion and near madness. In other words it is the perfect encapsulation of so many Christmas celebrations. Even the coolest glam rocker of them all Marc Bolan couldn’t resist the temptation of a Christmas song and even though his ‘Christmas Bop’ was never officially released it is by no means a throwaway.

To prove glam rock’s enduring appeal the Darkness came so close to a UK Christmas number one during Christmas 2003. Their OTT ‘Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)’ suited the season perfectly with the giant riffs only matched by towering church bells and Justin Hawkins ear splitting falsetto. One for the night before rather than the morning after.
