"Gary Glitter - Another Rock n' Roll Christmas"
"Another Rock and Roll Christmas" is a Christmas song by Gary Glitter, written by Glitter with Mike Leander and Eddie (Edward John) Seago. It was one of the most played Christmas hits on UK radio from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, but is now rarely heard publicly following the singer's convictions on child pornography and abuse charges. First released in 1984, the song was later included on the album Boys Will Be Boys (1984) and was reissued many times, both as a single (including a collectors picture disc) and on other albums.
The song sold well, hitting number seven in the UK Singles Chart, and was Glitter's most successful song since 1975. Though he was still touring regularly when the song came out, Glitter has credited "Another Rock n' Roll Christmas" as a song that gave him a resurgence in popularity.
