What is your favourite Xmas song?

Just thought I would put this question out and see do we still like Xmas as much as we used to be as a kid. I always like Xmas and love all those Xmas songs:

White Christmas,
walking in a winter wonderland,
Jingles bells,
I wish it could be christmas everyday,
merry christmas everyone,
Santa claus is coming to town,
let it snow,
have yourself a merry christmas,
rockin around the christmas tree,
when the child was born,
all I want for christmas is you
last christmas.

Is it just me being old and out of touch, so I still love xmas and its song so much or people just don’t xmas as important as when they were a kid? Is it because young people nowadays prefer R&B and Hip-Hop rather than a feel good cheesy xmas songs? when was the last time we really had a xmas song as a xmas no.1 like it used to be? I don’t really care if it is x factor winner, pop star or R&B star who sing or product it but a xmas no.1 should be a xmas song not just another cover of someone’s song for xmas no.1 spot.

My favourite xmas song is: Last christmas by Wham of course (I know, I know it never made it to no.1 (No.2). what is your favourite.


This always remembers me of Xmas!.. :cool:


I’m not into the Bing Crosby and frumpy supermarket commercial Christmas stuff which is all that I ever seem to hear.

Got introduced to some classic fabulous stuff which re-interprets Christmas music.

Sam Phillips does the best rendition of ‘It came upon a Midnight Clear’ I’ve ever heard:

Leigh Nash also does a very touching version of ‘Angels we have heard on high’:

which doesn’t quite top her excellent rendition of Silent Night:


One of the most consistent alternative Christmas albums I’ve heard in years comes from this obscure band in Cincinnati Ohio:


and of course, Aimee Mann’s Christmas album ‘Drifting in the Snow’, does a superb Aimee style interpretation of Jimmy Webb’s ‘Whatever happened to Christmas’:

Happy listening! Don’t accept mediocrity on the airwaves! Upgrade your music taste now! :slight_smile:

its got to be either have yourself a merry little chrismas… or white christmas

And of course how could I forget!

Leigh Nash’s beautiful cover of that good looking gay guy’s classic - “Last Christmas”:

Of course! how can I forget to put Silent Night?:angry:

Kevin Bl00dy Wilson - Hey Santa Claus
NSFW, it has dem rude werds in it!

My all time fav Christmas song is The Pogues & Kirsty McColl - Fairytale Of New York.


Love that song, but I’ll also add:



It shares top spot with this unlikely entry though. Sleighbells and all! :smiley:

Of course the modern classic


This track is from the Bob Dylan Chrismas album and I think this has just replaced the Pogues and Kirsty McColl as my favourite. I’ll have to wait and see if it has annoyed the hell out of me by the time Xmas is over to be sure.


Lennon - And So This Is Christmas

I know its pop rubbish but I do like Christmas (W)rapping by The Waitresses:D


I like ‘Dick the horse’.:slight_smile:

Is that your fav song or party game??:w00t:
