Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade Party HitsSlade – Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade Party Hits

You know Christmas is nearly here when hear Noddy Holder from Slade shouting “It’s Christmas’ as your walking through all your local shops in your local shopping centre whilst searching for Christmas presents, well this year Slade are going one better and are releasing ‘Merry Xmas Everybody, Slade Party Hits’ which is basically their best of compilation album which features a variety of Slade Christmas songs and party classics.

The album starts with ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, the song that everybody knows no matter what age you are or where you come from you will have heard this song and you will know every single word for it and you will also find yourself singing along no matter how much the song get’s on your nerves every year, I personally love the song and know Christmas is here as soon as I hear it this year, but this year that moment has come along a bit too soon, thanks to having to review the album.

Slade are the kinds of Christmas songs and other festive songs on the album include ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and ‘Here’s To... (The New Year), the perfect song for you to listen to after a barrel of beer whilst watching the new year come in.

Some of the bands other best loved hits are ‘Mama Weer All Crazee Now’, ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’, ‘Skweeze Me Pleeze Me’, ‘Okey Cokey’, ‘Let’s Have A Party’ are all included on the album and no matter how cheesy the song titles sound and the actually song’s are, they are still the best songs to listen to over the festive season and at drunken party’s.

Slade exploded out of the glam rock scene in the 1970’s and hit the top of the chart with 6 singles and made the top 20 with 23 single releases, they were one of the most loved English bands back in their day and ‘Merry Xmas Everybody, Slade Party Hits’ is a reminder of just how great but cheesy Slade really were and still are, the album is released on the 23rd November just in time for you to pick up whilst doing your Christmas shopping, even if you’re not interested in it, I am sure your dad is.
