A (Christmas) Song A Day: The Futureheads – ‘Christmas Was Better In The 80’s’

The Futureheads

Clearly 80s kids, The FutureheadsChristmas Was Better In The 80’s is the kind of festive nostalgia I can get on board with. The video is lo-fi and simple, with images of iconic 80s toys and photos of (what I think is) the band as wee boys back in the day.

This is a fun and simple track that emotes all the joy of being a child at Christmas (in the 80s or otherwise). Being child of the 80s myself, everything from the cover, to the lyrics and the video absolutely appeals. Christmas is never the same as a grown-up!
