"I Believe in Father Christmas" is a song by Greg Lake with lyrics by Peter Sinfield. Although it is often categorised as a Christmas song, this was not Lake's intention. Lake claims to have written the song in protest at the commercialisation of Christmas.[1] Sinfield, however, claims that the words are about a loss of innocence and childhood belief.[2]The song is often misinterpreted as an anti-religious song and, because of this, Lake was surprised at its success. As he stated in a Mojo magazine interview:
"I find it appalling when people say it's politically incorrect to talk about Christmas, you've got to talk about 'The Holiday Season'. Christmas was a time of family warmth and love. There was a feeling of forgiveness, acceptance. And I do believe in Father Christmas."
The instrumental riff between verses comes from the "Troika" portion of Sergei Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kijé Suite written for a 1934 Soviet film, Lieutenant Kijé,[3] added at Keith Emerson's suggestion.
The song was recorded by Lake in 1974 and released separately from ELP in 1975, reaching number two in the UK charts.[4] It was kept from number one by Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". Lake has commented: "I got beaten by one of the greatest records ever made. I would’ve been pissed off if I’d been beaten by Cliff (Richard)." However, orchestrator Godfrey Salmon was less charitable: "I was surprised the single wasn’t more successful. I thought 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was rubbish, and still do. When it got to No 1 before we’d even brought ours out, I thought it would be long gone by Christmas. How wrong can you get?"[5]The record was rereleased in 1984 and 1986 making 84 and 98 respectively in the UK Singles Chart.[6]
