3AM Eternal: The Beach Boys “Child of Winter” (1974)

childofwinter

Why a Christmas song? Simple:  IT IS HOT IN TEXAS.

As for the song, this is actually one of the rarest Beach Boys singles/non-album tracks. Sidebar: if you are going to release a Christmas single….you DON’T RELEASE IT THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS EVE and expect it to be heard! As a result, this single only garnered one release, went out of print, and didn’t appear on any Beach Boys record until nearly fifteen years later.

So while it’s hotter than hell outside, this lovely little solace of Winter sure sounds nice right about now….
