Did not chart. Has never charted. Will never chart. Squeeze went from "Give the dog a bone" and "It's so dirty with me" to "Mary and Joseph drove into town" in less than a year - no wonder the fans were confused. The b-side was the superb "Going Crazy" - scenes of mayhem and frenzy ensued when this was played as an encore with (of course) "Goodbye Girl". The session recorded for Radio 1 to promote the "Argy Bargy" LP had a much better version of this song, which continued Chris's fascination with butlers. "Christmas Day" was not released anywhere else in the world as a single. Was, however, released on the IRS records compilation "Just In Time For Christmas". EIRS 1046, for those hard-core completists among you.

Cover photograph by Janette Beckman. According to “Born in London, Janette grew up listening to Tamla Motown and the Rolling Stones. After studying at LCP she taught photography part time at a college in Clerkenwell mostly to local punks, squatters and art kids. She then started to show her art portfolio to record companies - A&M used one of her night shots of a Los Angeles motel for a Squeeze single. Commissioned to shoot the very first Police album sleeve she bought a Hasselblad camera which she still uses today.”
