This is second Queen song on the blog (first here). Despite liking the band for decades, and even though the song is now almost 30 years old, for some reason I just became aware of “Thank God It’s Christmas” a few years ago.

The opening two lines of the song pretty well describe part of any marriage, I would think: “Oh, my love, we’ve had our share of tears.
Oh, my friend, we’ve had our hopes and fears.”

A couple of later lines describe how Joanna and I view the world: “Oh, my love we’ve lived in troubled days. Oh, my friend, we have the strangest ways.”

And of course we would at least partially agree with the sentiment, “Can it be Christmas? Let it be Christmas ev’ry day.”

Lyrics here, with video below.
