Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 18

The Band - "Christmas Must Be Tonight"

The Band's seventh and final album, 1977's Islands, was a patchy affair recorded to fulfill their contractual obligations. It did include a few good songs though, and the very best among them is the stunning "Christmas Must Be Tonight". Songwriter Robbie Robertson even re-recorded it when he scored the 1988 film Scrooged. It's simply the Nativity of Jesus set to song, and it's one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever written. An absolute classic!
