"Christmas Wrapping," by The Waitresses, was first released in 1981 on the compilation album A Christmas Record on ZE Records, written soon after the birth of rap music in that style, hence the word "wrapping" in the title.
The song was covered by the Spice Girls in 1998 as a B-side for their single "Goodbye".
The Waitresses were an experimental new wave band from Akron, Ohio. The group was led by guitarist/songwriter Chris Butler with lead vocals performed by Patty Donahue. The Waitresses also recorded the theme song to the television program Square Pegs. Sadly Donahue died of lung cancer at the age of 40 on December 9, 1996.
This is a great Christmas record!
