Best Christmas Song?

Recommended Posts

Best selling Xmas song of all time is ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’. Bing Crosby - released in 1942 for the benefit of American troops fighting in the war.

Even today it competes well with more modern Xmas songs in terms of downloads and sales.

In no particular order;

Christmas Rapping - The Waitresses

Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Bruce Springsteen

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day - Wizzard

Fairytale Of New York - The Pogues

I don`t consider Christmas has started until I`ve heard all five.

All of the above. 

I would just add to that list Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) by the Darkness, which I heard on the radio today. 

Oh, and Jona Lewie's Stop The Cavalry. More an anti war song than a Christmas song, that one though. 

Anyway, it's all bollocks innit.

Got to be this one for me 

 

You scumbag, you maggot you cheap lousy...  Why did you have to bring this one up?,.. :laugh:

(love it really, but it tends to get so very overplayed ... -which to be fair isn't the songs fault)

 

Another I like a lot, is Tom Jones & Cerys Matthews version of Baby Its Cold Outside.

(albeit not strictly a Christmas song I guess) slightly dubious intentions too but great at this time of year.

No mention of

George Michael's  'Last Christmas'

yet.. it ain't half bad, is it?

I also loved his December Song. That's absolutely beautiful. 

I love the vast majority of Christmas songs. Sleigh Ride by the Ronettes gets blasted out by me first thing every Christmas morning

I appreciate that it is not a popular favourite but Jonny Mathis - when a child is born is a poignant  Christams song for me. My first daughter was born just before Christmas day and I took her home on Christmas morning. It I seems that whenever I hear it I seem to get something in my eye :sad26:

after Shaky it has to be this 👌

Yes Ronnie!

A Pistols/Thin Lizzy collaboration, originally called the Greedy Bastards IIRC! Loved this and bought the single at the time, in fact I might still have it.

Not Christmas related, but listen to his 'Don't touch your sister'  - if you haven't already.

It could be a song from the Somerset levels or the Forest of Dean.....  I first saw him live a few years back, when Princess Diana was quite a looker, he was rather taken with her.....  I did see him again, with his daughter supporting, not quite as funny, not sure if I had aged and changed, or he had.  Still I like a an evening on non PC comedy now and then.

Also check out  when the Canadians gave him a visa and told him he couldn’t use the C word, spawning the  song, ‘You can’t say C**t in Canada’.

on a similar theme, a music forum I'm a member of are arguing the toss as to whether "Keeping The Dream Alive" by Freiheit is a Christmas song (I've said it isn't, others say it is - thoughts?)

Good that it's for charity but just goes to show the state of the charts these days. Good that it beat Stormzy mind!
