Credit Card Christmas (It's Gonna Be)

by Scottland

A blast from the past....Originally released in 1988 to critical acclaim and diverse radio airplay, The 45rpm single, Credit Card Christmas was the brainchild of Scott Evans. It was during the holiday season of 1987 that Scott realized that there was no money in the coffers and that if Christmas would come, it would need to be paid for on credit. Once this stark realization occurred, the melody for the chorus sprung into his head, and the rest is...well.... history! Reaching the number 1 spot on radio for the 1988 holiday season on WPST (Mercer/Princeton, NJ) and number 1 in Guam (yes, honestly, Guam)... Credit Card Christmas became the “darling” of the then “holiday song” playlists across the globe.

Credit Card Christmas and Scottland came onto the scene in 1988. Credit Card Christmas became a holiday favorite throughout the country as one of the seasons most requested songs - reaching #1 WPST out of Trenton/Princeton NJ as well as #1 in Guam (yes, Guam). Having received many rave reviews at the time, Credit Card Christmas remains a cult classic:

Philadelphia Inquirer - "A local hit"
East Coast Rocker - "Humorous... with good pop sensibility"
Philadelphia City Paper - "Worth adding to you collection"
WMMR, Philadelphia - "An exceptional all-ages song. It'll run over Grandma as the "The" Christmas song of the 90's".
WPST, New Jersey - "always the most requested Christmas song"
WYSP, Philadelphia - "perfect for any comedy corner"
Delaware County Daily Times - "a song that should fast become a standard"

Scottland was formed by Singer/Songwriter Scott Evans who continues to write, record and produce. Scott's debut CD - 'Light, Love and the Pursuit of Happiness", was released in 2016 (check it out here on CD Baby, iTunes, or Amazon). Blending influences from years of work both in and out of the studio, Scotts music can be defined as 60's/70's influenced Pop Rock with somewhat of a modern twist. The CD - " Love, Light and The Pursuit of Happiness" features some fellow musicians including long time cohort and drummer Rich Scannella, Tom Dowd, Jay Mallet and Tim (Feach) Rudolph . Add Credit Card Christmas to your song list today and enjoy it for years to come.

A deep 80s pop gem for the holidays
I discovered this tune via its original 45 at my day job last year. It's a great nod to the classic grooves of A Christmas Gift for You and "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday". Public radio DJs like me looking for little-known treats from the Decade of Excess should find room alongside Band Aid and the Waitresses for this ode to holiday debt.
