The Muppets had really terrible Christmas songs. I think they missed an opportunity.

I think Annie Lennox is simply brilliant on this version

So what is everybody's top five Christmas songs? The ones that were on the Top of the Pops or the hit parade?

Slade Merry Christmas Everybody
Wombles, Wombling Merry Christmas
Chris Rea, Driving Home for Christmas
Maria Carey, Whatever that one is called
Elton John, Step into Christmas

tbh I haven't put much thought into these choices.

Top 5. Hmm...

Well head and shoulders above the rest would be the
  • Pogues - Fairytale of New York.
then in no particular order would be Chris Rea, Slade, John and Yoko and then maybe Chris De Burgh (A spaceman came travelling) or Elton John or maybe in after a few IPA's, I'd get up and belt Last Christmas at a Karoake party..

Others such as Mariah Carey, I saw mommy kissing santa claus etc don't do much for me. Bing and Bowie is quite interesting.

Reminds me of the grandfather who gave a little boy a pocket knife for Christmas and asked him if he knew what was in his new drum.
