Backseat Lovers

A song that started out as a parody, then became a staple and now is one of the highlights of the recent Backseat Lovers album. As you can see in the video above, it's a song they performed (in 2019 already) on a Christmas celebration. There is no mention of Christmas in the lyrics, but as a regular visitor and alt.Xmas enthusiast, you know that a good Christmas song does not need references to either the fest, the birth of Christ or trees and lights to rank as a good Christmas song.
This track is all about longing, and that's a Christmas-related feeling right there. Aspiration, many Xmas songs are about just that.
