“Hey Santa, Pass Us That Bottle, Will Ya?”
Honestly, if more malls and shopping centers played Christmas songs like this instead of the usual fare (looking at you, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”), we might not cringe quite so much when stores crank up the festivity beginning on Thanksgiving and refusing to let up until January 1st!
We’re talking about Jethro Tull and their latest masterpiece, a holiday tune appropriately titled “Pass The Bottle (A Christmas Song)”; bearing the usual hallmarks of a Jethro Tull song – flute work and fantastical lyrics from frontman Ian Anderson, highlighted by delicate guitar work – “Pass The Bottle (A Christmas Song)” also boasts the talents of the Carducci Quartet, turning this Jethro Tull tune into a holiday classic sure to warm even the hardest of hearts this holiday season.
It’s featured on Tull’s upcoming album Jethro Tull: The String Quartets and we can anticipate a March 2017 release date, but until then you can give it a listen via the audio below. Enjoy!
