Re: Best Christmas Song

Well, following last night's shocking "admission" - Mr A Al will be along soon to cast his vote to the song that wasn't performed by Jennifer Rush

For me, from the list the Pogues/MacColl () would clinch it by a country mile. Nostaligia also tells me Lennon - Happy Christmas (War Is Over). For a whole album, I would highly recommend the Sufjan Stevens Christmas album or anything Ella Fitzgerald did on the "subject".

But for my faves......

Joni Mitchell - River
The Pretenders - 2000 Miles
Jethro Tull - Christmas song
Low - Christmas
Cocteau Twins - Frosty the Snowman
The Who - Christmas
Beach Boys - Little Saint Nick

And surely....
Half Man Half Biscuit - All I Want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague away kit



























































Oh, and anything by The Chipmunks!

The meek shall inherit the earth
but not the mineral rights

Re: Best Christmas Song

Not sure about the "best", but this HAS to be the Christmas No.1 for 2007!

Errrr....it's just been released for Christmas time
Do you know what's held that magnificent accolade for the last 20 years (apart from Live Aid 1 & errrrr Live Aid 2) and had a Xmas "connection"?


Since when does there need to be a connection???
The days of Roy Wood, Little Jonny Osmond & Wings are buried in our collective psyche (I'm afraid). It's going to be X-factor for the forseable future unless you, yes YOU Mr Gary Slegg do something about it

Either you like it....or you don't

Re: Best Christmas Song

Here is an amazing one sent to me by my uncle, who used to do barber shop quartet singing in his younger days:

It is "Straight No Chaser", an a cappella vocal group from
Indiana U doing the "Twelve Days of Christmas" on YouTube. It is
probably one of the best renditions I've heard (I cannot imagine what
the rehearsals for it were like). I think you'll appreciate it...
