As a bit of fun in the lead up to Christmas, we thought we’d introduce the Christmas Songs Battle!

For this first phase, 16 well-known and loved Christmas songs have been selected, a very tricky job. They have been entered into a random draw generator to keep things fair, so now all that’s left is to vote…

Pick your favourites from the following pairs to move them through to the Quarter-Final stage!

You have until Friday 10th December to share your choices, and if you have any questions let me know. 
 

All I Want For Christmas Is You (Mariah Carey) v Santa Baby (Eartha Kitt)

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree (Brenda Lee) v Driving Home for Christmas (Chris Rea)

Step Into Christmas (Elton John) v Mistletoe and Wine (Cliff Richard)

Fairytale of New York (The Pogues, Kirsty MacColl) v Merry Xmas Everybody (Slade)

The Christmas Song (Nat King Cole) v Merry Christmas Everyone (Shakin’ Stevens)

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday (Wizzard) v Do They Know It’s Christmas? (Band Aid)

Last Christmas (Wham!) v Christmas Wrapping (The Waitresses)

Happy Xmas- War Is Over (John Lennon) v Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Michael Bublé)

 

Enjoy! :)

P.S. You can also vote for your favourite Christmas films if you haven't already here.
