What's your favourite Christmas tune? Mine's Rocking around the Christmas Tree by Brend Lee, closely followed by Maria Carey All I want for Chistmas (is you).

    I like white Christmas by Bing Crosby and some hymns like silent night and ding dong merrily on high etc. ?

    Toss up between Mistletoe and Wine by Sir Cliff or Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin' Stevens, or even Milennium Prayer by Sir Cliff.

    Gotta be Fairytail in New York

    Shame it's beem banned by the BBC so nobody ever plays it, because of that ever so slightly offensive verse containing the F word.. I still think it's PC gone mad, created by leftie Guardian readers who think everything is potentially offensive.

    Little Donkey has to be my all time favourite. Reminds me of when i was a little girl because i used to sing it for my Grampy. Everytime i hear it, it brings a tear to my eye. He passed away in 1979. I was only little when he passed away and this is my only memory of him.

    That's a lovely memory @poppy123456 :) 

    I don't know what mine is! There are already lots of good ones here. I like Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses, and Last Christmas by Wham! of course. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday is another classic

    Is anyone old enough to remember the "Wombling Merry Christmas" atrocity released way back around the mid to late 70's? I did however like that "Lonley this Christmas" by Mud, released way back in the early 70's (before my time but it's on Top of the Pops every year)

    Sadly i'm more than old enough both mud and the wombles would have been around 1974, its amazing now that downloads are used to compile the charts that all the classic hits from Christmas past make up half the top 20 the week before Christmas I think Maria Carey was #6 last year.
    eta: MC is #2 this week and Wham! #3

    Sorry, I can't stand 'White Christmas.' For me it would also be Wizzard's 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' or Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody.' Perhaps the lyrics of Queen's 'Thank God It's Christmas' mean even more this year tho. See:
    Carols are also evocative of Christmas; I also especially like 'Silent Night,' & 'Once in Royal David's City.'

    Hi @woodbine
                             Thank you so much for starting this thread. For me, it's got to be 'Last Christmas' by Wham, though I do also like 'Afraid of heights' by Tom Fletcher and 'What if' by Kate Winslet. There have been some classics mentioned on the thread :) Thank you

    Great idea @janer1967.

    I love some of the old Christmas Pop songs, been watching some on YouTube today, cheered me up a bit as I've been in a bad mood all day due to something that happened last night.
