Lost Hits of the New Wave #8

“Christmas Wrapping” by The Waitresses

Yeah, I’m being seasonal, so what? It’s Christmas, deal with it.

When folks think of The Waitresses, they think of three things – “I Know What Boys Like,” the TV series “Square Pegs,” and this song, and for many, it’s just not Christmas until they hear this song on the radio. Yeah, it’s that special.

For me, it has an extra special meaning. “Christmas Wrapping,” a now-classic tune about a couple who keep missing each other throughout the year and finally get together for Christmas, reminds me of The Bride. We were very good friends for five years before ever going out, and that’s not to say we didn’t try. There were so many times we tried to get together and move the relationship forward and didn’t – but we eventually did – sorta like the song.

Merry Christmas, everyone, hope you get what you want for Christmas. I did – The Bride.
