Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 17
Hitmakers Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman owned the British charts in the early to mid-seventies, writing and producing singles for (mostly) glam rock acts like Sweet, Suzi Quatro, Smokie and Mud. The latter's fabulous Christmas single "Lonely This Christmas" was the band's second number one hit, topping the UK charts in December 1974. It's an Elvis-imitating, self-indulgent, super-sentimental and very beautiful ballad taht is also one of my all-time Christmas favourites. Soppy and sad in a good way.
Watch and listen
