2. Trans Siberian Orchestra - Carol of the Bells
3. John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War is Over)
4. Burl Ives - Holly, Jolly Christmas
5. Barenaked Ladies - God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman / We Three Kings (feat. Sarah McLachlan)

I loves me some Christmas songs

There are so many classics. I do love Bruce's 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town' and John Lennon's 'Happy Xmas' but I'm more a fan of the old standards. And the big church-choir style ones. Off the top of my head...

Silent Night (my all-time favorite fo sho)
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Angels We Have Heard On High
The Christmas Song
Oh Holy Night
Silver Bells
White Christmas
Let It Snow
Oh Come All Ye Faithful

Hell, there's probably a bunch more I'll think of later. The Chipmunks had some fun ones that I used to rock when I was little. There's a good one in the movie Love, Actually that I can't remember at all right now. Christmas songs are the shit.

Oh yeah, I love's me some christmas songs. I sometimes listen to them in the middle of the year too

1. Do they know it's Christmas - Band Aid - can't help but chuckle when Sting sings "bitter sting"

2. Last Christmas - Wham! - best use of Christmas jumpers ever

3. Green Christmas - Barenaked Ladies - a little bit scroogey but kinda true

4. The Happy Elf - Harry Connick jnr. - a jaunty tune that gets my feet a tappin

5. Baby Please Come Home - U2 - baby Bono

6. I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas - primary school fun

7. Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer - Dr Elmo - no explanation necessary

8. Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC - funny to play at work when the grannies are expecting Bing Crosby

9. All I Want for Christmas - Mariah Carey - should be bad but is oooh sooo goood

10. Six White Boomers - Rolf Harris - funny accents, wobble boards, heartwarming tale, what else do you need
YouTube - Six White Boomers


Of course I love all the classics sung by Frankie or Bing

Seriously, that Darkness song has become my most listened to Christmas song of the past 4 or 5 years. Not bad for a gimmick band!

1/ Do they Know It's Christmas (Band Aid) I don't care what Bono says, the original is the best
2/ The Power Of Love (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) There best song. It's even more powerful when you watch the video where it shows a version of the Nativity play. It's not actually a boy meets girl love song it's about the birth of Jesus.
3/ Fairytale Of New York (The Pogues and Kirsty McCall) This is always no1 in the list of the best christmas songs. I never could understood what he was saying until my mum told me that it was about a couple who spent their lives on drugs. It's his teeth and you think with his money that he gets from the play of this song alone would be enough for him to get them fixed. I'm not talking about straight teeth, I don't have straight teeth, but just having a full mouth of teeth would be a help.
4/ War Is Over (John Lennon)
5/ I wish it could be Christmas everyday (Queen)
6/ that Paul McCartney song
7/ On A Saviour's Day (Cliff Richard) I know it's embarasing but heck it's Christmas
8/ Snow Is Falling (Shakin' Stevens) Same reason as above
9/ Last Christmas (Wham)
10/ Don't Let the Bells Ring Out (Darkness)

I don't like it when artists release a non seasonal song around christmas time and in order to give it that December feel they simply put a few bells in and they release a video with snow and everyone dressed in white. East 17 did that and numourous others. Nowadays the X Factor song always gets to no1 in Britain.

Is anyone else seeing a really funky format that happened after Cinnaminson's post? For me, it looks like every post after hers is appearing as a quote in her post. Like, the other posts after hers are indented, rather than the user info appearing on the far left of the page.

Weird.
