Is America Overdue for a Satanic Revival? (Part Two)

The “Christmas single” phenomenon is unknown in the U.S., unless you’ve ever watched Love, Actually.

It’s sort of the “Black Friday” of the British music industry. Since so much music is sold (or, at least, used to be) during the holiday season, having the #1 song on the charts during that time gives one lucky record company a financial boost.

After Slade took the top spot in 1973 with their “Merry Xmas Everybody” — beating out  “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” by Wizzard — “an emotional attachment to the Christmas countdown has developed, and for many [in the United Kingdom], it is part of the fabric of their childhood.”

    I stopped listening to popular music in the 1970’s. So I am not able to comment intelligently on this.

    Missed Part One. Also missing some key connexion here. In any event, one shouldn’t confuse Witchcraft with Satanism, or conflate them.

    Ozzy and Black Sabbath were actually Christian rockers.
