"If I hear that Paul McCartney Christmas song one more time, I'm going to scream."
Gordie Johnson is no fan of the ex-Beatle's perky 1979 holiday hit Wonderful Christmastime and, in fact, finds much of the contemporary Christmas music canon pretty dismal.
But the lead singer and guitarist for recently revived blues/rock/reggae band Big Sugar says he had no interest in adding his own holiday song to the mix.
That is until he heard a demo sent to him by a Windsor, Ont., songwriter which contained a dirty little ditty called If Santa Don't Bring You No Funk.
