Your Favourite Christmas Songs

I’m not a big lover of Christmas but do like a sentimental (or otherwise) festive song.

My absolute favourite is this one which some in Ireland want banned because of the word “faggot” in the best line in a Christmas song ever.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

This is mine, although there are several others I like nearly as much. And certainly not The Spice Girls cover!

The video is very 80’s though!

When my daughter was small she hated ‘the drunk song’ as she called Fairy tale of New York. Now an adult she appreciates what it means.
I love most Christmas songs and especially Anthony Warlow singing O Holy Night

It’s strange there are a few seasonal songs that I enjoy playing on my saxophone but it’s a bit of overkill at this time of year because I refuse to play them until the 1st December so it’s a few weeks of them then eleven months without.

I did see a you tube vid of Fascinating Aida’s Christmas song, might be a bit too rude to put a link on here though​:astonished::astonished: (easy enough to find)

It seems that every supermarket I enter has Mariah Carey and her Christmas song belting through the loudspeakers!

Should be banned as being dangerous to the health…if I hear it one more time I may just throw a tantrum and throw my shopping all over the floor !

In the past I used to do a lot of driving at Christmas time and Driving Home for Christmas became a bit of an anthem.

Despite hating Christmas that is one of my favourites, it was inspired by Rea driving home to Middlesbrough from London in the snow when he was skint.
