I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day Christmas Song

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day

Year: 1973

Written By: Wizzard

This track is a well-known popular Christmas song which appears to have featured a rebirth in popularity as it has re-entered the UK Chart top 50 since December 2007 every December despite not being re-released.

The song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' was released by the rock band; Wizzard. The band was formed in Birmingham by Roy Wood who was previously in the Electric Light Orchestra. Roy Wood was the author of this Christmas hit.

Despite being considered one of the best Christmas songs to ever reach our ears, it has never reached number 1 in the charts, leading to many fans of this song describing it as one of the best songs to never be number one. First released back in 1973, this hit was beaten to number one by another sensational Christmas song, which is 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by Slade. This Slade classic sat top of the charts for five weeks in all. 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' succeeded in reaching number 4 in the UK Singles Chart, this was to be the highest position this track ever achieved to date.

The music video Wizzard created for this song features Roy Wood on lead vocals, being supported by backing vocals from The Suedettes. The video also features a role from The Stockland Green Bilateral School First Year, with the record sleeve crediting a performance as well from 'Miss Snob and Class 3C'. Instead of being recorded in the Christmas period, it was instead recorded in August. Vocalist Roy Wood is said to have found the woollen hat for the video in lost property.

Due to a number of reasons, with one main factor being that this catchy tune did not originally reach number one, Wizzard decided to re-release the track. It was released on two occasions (1981 and 1984) in the hope of becoming number one, however both attempts didn't quite make it. The 1981 the re-release only reached number 41 in the UK Charts and the 1984 re-release, this time accompanied with a 12" version earned a position of number 23.

This festive track has been covered by many artists, both by successful bands, for example Westlife and also by aspiring musicians, such as Eoghan Quigg while he was appearing on the UK X-Factor competition. Other notable bands who have covered this track are; The Saturdays and Girls Aloud.

 

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day Lyrics

When the snowman brings the snow
Well he just might like to know
He's put a great big smile on somebody's face
If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don't you lock the doors
You know that sweet Santa Claus in on the way

[Chorus]
Well I wish it could be Christmas every day
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh I wish it could be Christmas every day
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

When we're skating in the park
If the snow cloud makes it dark
Then your rosy cheek's gonna light my merry way
Now the frosty paws appear
And they've frozen up my beard
So we'll lie by the fire
'Til the sleet simply knocks 'em all away

[Chorus]

When the snowman brings the snow (snowman brings the snow)
Well he just might like to know (just might like to know)
He's put a great big smile on somebody's face
So if Santa brings that sleigh (Santa brings that sleigh)
All along the Milky Way (along the Milky Way)
I'll sign my name on the rooftop in the snow
Then he may decide to stay

[Chorus] x2

Why don't you give your love for christmas

When the snowman brings the snow x8
