Best Christmas Song?

Best Christmas Song? Empty Best Christmas Song?

Post by Sugar Boy Sweetie Sat 01 Dec 2012, 3:46 pm

The season is almost upon us, and I'm putting an Xmas playlist together for the various gatherings we'll no doubt be having which caused an intense debate with missus over what the best Christmas song is. I say War is Over by John Lennon, she says Band Aid. Lots of people say the Fairytale of New York but I think they're just trying to be cool. So what's everybody's top picks for an Xmas playlist?

I always prefer the old school style of ones like Let it Snow, White Christmas, chestnuts roasting on an open fire etc

"The Man Who Slits the Turkey's Throats at Christmas"

A Yuletide classic.

The Fairytale of New York is good but the one that for me is the best is Bruce Springsteens version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. Brilliant.

The one that always makes me feel christmassy is The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole...."chestnuts roasting on an open fire.."

Fairytale of New York for me.
Love "Driving home for Christmas" by Chris Rea too. Also like Christmas lights by Coldplay.

My favourites:

Damien Dempsey - O Holy Night
The Alarm - Merry Christmas War Is Over (done with a male voice choir not annoying kids and Yoko Ono - sounds so much better)
The Pogues & Kirsty - Fairytale of New York
Band Aid - The original and best Do They Know It's Christmas.
Judy Garland - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
David Bowie & Bing Crosby - The Little Drummer Boy

A late addition here but I thought it was worthy of a mention anyway:

In Dulci Jubilo - Mike Oldfield

I like that one Dyre. I seem to remember it being a B-side on a 7" single of Oldfield's my mother had.
