Seeing as my local radio station started playing today, what’s everyone’s favourite and why? I love “let it snow let it snow let it snow”. Just reminds me of being at home with the fire on. (And die hard)
Last Christmas by Wham. I just have to sing along with this one!
Pouges fairytale of New York
I try and avoid all the commercial Christmas tunes, with respect I can’t stand any of them. The only ones I like are these - Christmas Rappin’ by Kurtis Blow, Christmas In Hollis by Run-DMC.
Someone has to stand up and take the bullet, so…
Merry Christmas Everybody by SLADE!
Pogues and Kirsty Fairytale of Newyork.
Greg Lake - I believe in Father Christmas.
Wizzard!! Gotta love some 80s Christmas classics!
Okay… so Fairytale of New York might actually be on my playlist all year round. I think I downloaded it one July .
Everything else, love them, but not until December!
Has to be the Pogues and Kirsty. I love Kirsty’s voice, and I’ve been getting her other music too in recent years.
Oh yes, and not before December.
I can tolerate most of it in December, before that I’m firmly in the ‘no’ camp.
I enjoy the classics, and Carol of the Bells reminds me of Home Alone every time
(There is one song that really gets my hackles up and I have been known to leave a shop if it comes on and that’s Santa Baby. I don’t know why; I just hate that song with a passion!)
I like Yule shoot ur eye out (Fall Out Boy) and Merry merry merry frickin’ Christmas (Fricken A i think) not exactly classics but i like the style of the 1st and the 2nd is quite funny
Not in the least bit biased but Slade and Wizzard.
That’s my favourite too @wildflower x
Fairy tale of New York is far and away my favourite and if you have never seen the documentary about the making of it I would encourage you to give it a watch.
I second @Chosen-one - Pogues, Fairytale of New York!
Ooh haven’t seen that…will have to search it out!
Pogues fairy tale in new York
BBC are refusing to play the original version
Radio 1 to be exact, but when you consider some of the current hits they do play, Fairytale of NY is quite tame!
