The Futureheads fondly recall Christmas in the '80s on cheeky new holiday song

If anyone can successfully blend wistful with cheeky, it’s the Futureheads. And wouldn’t you know it, the band puts its talents to work on a new holiday song, “Christmas Was Better in the 80’s.”

It’s a careening remembrance of being a kid at Christmastime, complete with ringing bells, sturdy choir-like vocal harmonies, pell-mell guitars and preposterous assertions like, “The snow was deeper in the ’80s.” It’s great.

The song is available for purchase starting Monday through the iTunes music store, or you can rock out right here, right now.
