The Waitresses, "Christmas Wrapping"

The Waitresses were an experimental new wave band from Akron, Ohio. Their best remembered hit may very well be "I Know What Boys Like," which did not chart at the time, oddly, as it was widely played at clubs, on radio and jukeboxes in 1982. The band was fronted by singer Patty Donahue who, tragically, died of lung cancer at the age of 40.

"Christmas Wrapping" has become a phenomenally successful holiday cult hit over the years. It went to #45 in the United Kingdom in '82. And here it is for you to enjoy, hopefully, as our Christmas countdown continues. (Only 21 more shopping days!)
