Erasure - She Won't Be Home

| Kerri
She phones her mum
Says this time she cannot come
Don't worry I'm with friends this Christmas
Dad gets upset
But in time he soon forgets
Here comes another lonely Christmas

And I wanted to say to you
How much I want to be with you
I wanted to say to you
How much I need to be with you
Christmas time comes once a year
She knows this time he won't be near

This song from 1989's Crackers International doesn't come up much (or ever) on the Christmas radio stations or playlists, but that makes it more of a surprise and delight to hear, despite the sad bassoon and longing lyrics. 

Alternate happy, cheesy, early 80s Christmas Eve song by The Waitresses:

RIYL: Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Yaz, OMD, Eurythmics
