Greg Lake’s birthday
Originally shared by Di S
I thought I’d do a birthday post for 11/10 before I forget. This wasn’t intended as a Christmas song and Im posting this vid because it’s a nice version. I love this song 🙂
1948, Born on this day, Greg Lake, King Crimson, Emerson Lake and Palmer. (1977 UK No.2 single ‘Fanfare For The Common Man’), solo, (1975 UK No.2 single ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’).
„I Believe In Father Christmas” is a song by Greg Lake (most famously a member of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer). Although it is often categorised as a Christmas song this was not Lake’s intention. Lake wrote the song in protest at the commercialisation of Christmas.
The song was recorded by Lake in 1974 and released separately from ELP in 1975, becoming the Christmas number two in the UK charts.
