Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 6

The Band - Christmas Must Be Tonight

Today there is another absolute favourite in my musical Advent calendar. lifted from The Band's seventh and final album, 1977's Islands. It was a patchy affair recorded to fulfill contractual obligations, but did include a few good songs. The very best is the stunning "Christmas Must Be Tonight", which has become a true Christmas classic. Songwriter Robbie Robertson even re-recorded it when he scored the awesome 1988 film Scrooged. It's essentially the Nativity of Jesus in musical form, and one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever written.
