I Believe In Father Christmas- Greg Lake fav songs

billkozyBillkozy on 12/27/2016

Well here's a song in my series of Kerblunks based on my favorite songs that does triple duty: a song I like a lot, a Christmas song for this time of the year, and a tribute to the late Greg Lake. This song made it to #2 on the charts.

Regarding Santa Claus, Greg Lake has said, "For me as a child, it was the visual image of peace on earth and goodwill toward men. It was the symbol of generosity and feeling good and all those things. And that's what I think Christmas is all about."

He went on, "I wrote the original theme and melody for the Christmas song and collaborated with Pete Sinfield writing the lyrics. Keith [Emerson of ELP] really took care of the arrangement by adding the Prokofiev and I produced the record adding orchestra and choir."

In a January 2011 edition of Uncut magazine, Lake said, "I wrote it in my house in west London. I'd tuned the bottom string of my guitar from E down to D and got this cascading riff that you hear on the record. But I couldn't really place what the song was about. I was out driving one day and it was playing on my mind, and, all of a sudden, it occurred to me that the tune of 'Jingle Bells' fitted over it. And I thought, 'Ah…I wonder if this could be a song about Christmas! At the same time, I was working with Pete Sinfield on my solo side of the Works album, and I said to Pete, "I've been working on this melodic idea. It could be a Christmas song."
