Christmas Songs Day 14 - Mud 'Lonely This Christmas'

Day 14 then and today its the wonderful 'Lonely This Christmas' from Mud.

Released back in 1974, unlike many of the Christmas songs on my list so far, this one actually did reach the top spot in the UK singles chart.

'Lonely This Christmas' is quite a slow song, but Mud themselves were more Glam Rock than crooner, so quite unusual really. I always thought this was Elvis when I was little!!

Great song, and still going as a faithful on Christmas compilations. So there we have it - Day 14.
