#6 – Paul McCartney & Wings – “A Wonderful Christmas Time” – (1979)

I’ve seen “A Wonderful Christmas Time” listed as a solo song by Paul McCartney – even though it was released on Wings’ 1979 album Back to the Egg – and as a single by Wings: so I listed it as both. I’ve also seen it listed as “Wonderful Christmastime,” but I like the way I’ve listed it better. The futuristic sound of the song is a result of it being played on a weird, old (then modern) synthesizer. That sound is one of the main reasons it is so memorable – that and it never really picks up speed: the song is kind of flatly paced. It’s definitely different – but definitely good.
