Now that we’re in December the Christmas song floodgates can finally be opened up.

Music and singing have always been a traditional activity at Christmas, and so, it follows that Christmas music would get people in a festive mood. With Christmas songs there are many classics that people love to listen to over the holidays. In this article I will list my top 10 Christmas songs.

10-‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ by Mariah Carey

9-Do they know it’s Christmas? Band Aid

8-‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ by Slade

7-‘2000 Miles’ by The Pretenders

6-‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ by Andy Williams

5-‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ by Wizzard

4- ‘Step Into Christmas’ by Elton John

3-‘Driving Home for Christmas’ by Chris Rea

2-’Stay Another Day’ by East 17

1-‘Last Christmas’ by Wham


I must give an honorable mention to ‘Fairytale of New York’ by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. Sadly, there’s just not enough room in my stocking this year for that song.

So do you agree with Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ being the top Christmas song?  If you are playing Whamageddon maybe not!  If you are not familiar with this game it is seeing how far towards Christmas you can get before hearing Last Christmas – good luck with that!  We are definitely not playing along with that one!
