When I started working in rock radio, there were many new Christmas songs I had never heard and one of those was comedy duo Cheech & Chong's "Santa Claus and His Old Lady". I was transformed.

See how many times you hear the word "man"? It's a lot for a six and a half minute song/routine. The song was the duo's first single released in December of 1971. Watch out for Santa on the freeway!
