On the eighth day of Blogmas... This is a bit of a cop-out, but I’m not even in the country today. Last year, I posted my favourite Christmas films so what better way to continue that trend with my favourite Christmas songs. I really need to get a Christmas Spotify playlist on the go, to get me through my commute – maybe I’ll sort that at the weekend. In the mean time, here is my top 10.
1. Mariah Carey – All I want for Christmas is You
This is my all-time favourite, for no other reason that Mariah is incredible and I always used to think I could hit those high notes too... who am I fooling?!
2. The Pogues & Kirsty McColl – Fairytale Of New York
This is a classic and it’s always been a favourite with the family. This would always be playing on Christmas Day
3. The Waitresses – Christmas Wrapping
I think this played in the background of many a family Christmas video as we were growing up. For some reason, it reminds me of my dad
4. Chris Rea – Driving Home for Christmas
I’ve only really liked this one since I’ve been working full time – that feeling when we break up after a half day on Christmas Eve... winning!
5. John Lennon – Happy Xmas (War is Over)
Growing up, mum often played the same Christmas CD and this was the first track – so it brings back good memories
6. Wham – Last Christmas
Sad I know, but I love when the boys crack out the football version at Barnet. I always end up singing along to that version instead of the correct one!
7. Bing Crosby – White Christmas
See above *hides*
8. Destiny’s Child – 8 Days of Christmas
Cheesy I know, because it’s not even a particularly good song, but a bit of old skool DC never did anyone any harm
9. Shakin’ Stevens – Merry Christmas Everyone
It’s another one that played a lot at home when we were younger, especially at Christmas parties. It’s so uplifting
10. Peter Auty – Walking in the Air
The Snowman is one of my favourite Christmas films, so I just had to include this
What are your favourite Christmas songs?
