Mary’s Boy Child


After the almost anti-Christmas offering from Greg Lake, and Thomas Hardy’s wearied agnosticism, here’s a Christmas hit which unashamedly affirms the gospel story. Today’s song for advent is Mary’s Boy Child, by Boney M.

Incidentally, if it looks like their miming it rather badly on the video, that’s because they hadn’t even sung it in the studio either. Like their later counterparts Milli Vanilli, the visible side of Boney M was different to the recording side.
