Karaoke Wizard it could be Christmas everyday

Don’t you wish it could be Christmas everyday so the song goes but is that not just wishful thinking? Of course wouldn’t it become a little boring! Life is all about remembering, reflecting, having religious thoughts, doing charitable deeds, having fun or just being with the ones you love to recreate past moments to treasure especially at Christmas time. You couldn’t do that everyday although some people try it out!

So once again this is Christmas! Time with friends and family around you and perhaps even a little thought for those you have known with affection in the past! It is so wonderful to celebrate another Christmas – well I wish it could be Christmas everyday when the kids start singing and the band begins to play. Oh I wish it could be Christmas everyday so let the bells ring out for Christmas.

I have put together a small  collection of ten of my own favourite songs and with a bonus issue or two, and hope you like them. The music and the words are given below for your pleasure. This sixth one reflects on wishing it could be Christmas everyday !– so you have no choice but to sing along! as follows:-

“I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday”

When the snowman brings the snow

Well he just might like to know
He’s put a great big smile on somebody’s face
If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don’t you lock the doors
You know that sweet Santa Clause is on the way

Well I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

When your skating in the park
If the snow cloud makes it dark
Then your rosy cheeks are gonna light my merry way
Now the frosty paws appear
And they’ve frozen up my ear
So we’ll lie by the fire
Till the sleet simply knocks ’em all the way

Well I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh I wish it could be Christmas every day
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

When the snow man brings the snow(snowman brings the snow)
Well he just might like to know(just might like to know)
He’s put a great big smile on somebody’s face
So if Santa brings that sleigh(Santa brings that sleigh)
Along the milky way(along the milky way)
I’ll sign my name on the rooftop in the snow
Then he may decide to stay

Well I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

It was written by ROY WOOD.

Extracts from The Guardian

“In our latest visit to the archives of Rock’s Backpages – the world’s leading collection of vintage music journalism – we unwrap Johnny Black’s account, first published in Q magazine in 1996, of the making of I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard. The song was famously pipped to the Christmas No 1 post by Slade’s Merry Xmas Everybody in 1973.”…

Karaoke Wizzard-in-1973-007 1

Roy Wood: I couldn’t write music, so I developed my own musical code….. If I wanted the notes joined together, I’d do a wavy line under them. Luckily, the band got very good at reading it….

Bill Hunt: He wanted a choir of children on the track, and he insisted it had to be Birmingham kids, even though we were recording in London, so I got the job of sorting it out. I lived near Stockland Green School in Slade Road, which always amused me because in the end we battled it out with Slade for the No 1 spot.

Hilary Gunton (schoolgirl): My mother didn’t want me to go. I was just 12 and she was worried about what might happen to me with these rock types, but I said I would never ever talk to her again if she stopped me. One day at assembly, the music teacher auditioned us by having us sing hymns unaccompanied in front of the whole school. It was incredibly embarrassing but I knew that if I wanted to meet Wizzard, I had to do it…..

Roy Wood: We sent the roadies out to bring some fans into the studio. I don’t mean girls. These were the kind with motors which whirr round. We had the place decorated with tinsel, silver balls and fairy lights round the speakers, all the party gear. We got the December atmosphere all right. It was so cold that we played in scarves and overcoats – just what the song needed.

Hilary Gunton: One Saturday morning, a minibus picked us up, and we were given cakes and chocolate to eat on the way to London. I was disappointed at the studio because I expected the whole band to be there, but it was just Roy and a pair of headphones. He didn’t even have his make-up on. I asked if his hair was real and he let me pull it. He recorded us several times, building it up on tape to make it sound like a bigger choir. After it was done, we were all sitting round on this big sofa listening to the song, and Roy shouted, “What number will we get to?” and we all screamed, “Number one!”…

Roy Wood: I did the sleigh bells at the end myself. I just shook them until I was too tired to do it any more. People talk about it being over-produced, but the effect I was trying to get was something I personally associate with Christmas, that Walt Disney music feel. It’s Disney movie music without the film. ….

Bill Hunt: Of course, Slade got to Christmas No 1 and we were No 2, but when we did it on Top Of The Pops there was a staged custard pie fight. While Slade were on, one of our drummers sneaked into the audience and hit Noddy full in the face with one. If you see the video, you’ll notice that Noddy doesn’t appear again after that, so we got our own back for not being No 1.”
