Christmas Time Is Here Again

Originally performed on one of their annual Beatles Fan Club recordings, this song has all the charms and debits of said recordings: unpretentious likability, Beatles-quality production, but next-to-nothing lyrics. The song's title is repeated ad nauseum a few dozen times, followed by "Ain't been 'round since you-know-when" (whatever that means). Ringo "covered" the song three decades later on his Christmas CD I Wanna Be Santa Claus, where the same virtues and flaws are essentially intact.
