Xmas Jam Countdown: "Christmas Wrapping" by the Spice Girls, Save Ferris and Waitresses


(Each day until Christmas, A to Z will be posting a Christmas/holiday-themed MP3 in honor of the festive season, in hopes of warding off the seasonal blahs. Check back every day for a new nugget of sonic bliss.)

MP3: Spice Girls, "Christmas Wrapping"

MP3: The Waitresses, "Christmas Wrapping"

MP3: Save Ferris, "Christmas Wrapping"

This is one of my favorite holiday tunes. The original version is by the Waitresses, and was originally found on a 1981 EP called I Could Rule The World If I Could Only Get The Parts, which also contains the bitching song/TV theme song "Square Pegs." The Spice Girls included it as a b-side to their single "Goodbye." And the version by '90s ska-punkettes Save Ferris was adapted for Hannukkah.
