Was just listening to some Queen songs that i have not heard for a long time and TGIC is actually quite a beautiful song and the way Freddie sings it is really good

I'm a Jehovah's Witness, and have to turn the song off within five seconds or risk going to hell.

Great song!!!   See you all in hell.

It's dreadful. It sounds like it was put together in half an hour, Fred's vocals are a mess, and of course Xmas records are almost always annoying and cheesy anyway. Ugh.

It's a lazy performance, perhaps intentionally so. Maybe he's tryin to "croon" a la Bing Crosby. On the verses he slides up and down the scale instead of hitting the notes cleanly. The chorus is better, maybe even good.

It's OK.  Not a classic, but considering it was 1984, it could be far far worse!

"What do you think of Thank God It's Christmas?"
It's an odd question considering it summertime...
But who am I to judge, after all they sell Xmas decorations at Selfridges in London.

Honestly I'm not real crazy about it. It's rather weak overall, and early 80s music or not I can't stand it when "rock" bands suddenly use synthesizers and drum machines for everything.

That was before Microwave was a Jehovah's Witness. They believe in it now.
