In anticipation of another chaotic festive season, beloved Aussie beer Carlton Dry has created a catch-cry Christmas song…

The tongue-in-cheek cover of the Christmas classic, ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ is buoyant and bound to become a staple on the office Spotify Christmas playlist!

The track, performed by the Carlton Dry Christmas Orchestra, bemoans workplace hookups, car park traffic jams and of course fights in the kitchen about politics and religion.


The comedic Christmas song was created for those who “know things are dire when they’re playing Mariah” so in a bold gesture – befitting of the competitive Christmas chart period – Carlton Dry have made it their prime objective to knock Mariah off the number one position on the Australian Spotify streaming charts in the week approaching Christmas.

“We know there are plenty of Aussies out there who aren’t terribly stoked about Christmas and are getting a touch over listening to the same songs about a ‘perfect’ Christmas every year”, explains Carlton Dry’s Associate Director, Hayden Turner.


He adds, “this song is for them. And in the spirit of some healthy Christmas competition, we’ve made it our only Christmas wish to dismantle Queen Mariah’s throne, even just for one day.”
