The sound of jingle bells and a catchy beat will get even the biggest Grinch into the festive spirit of Christmas. Here’s 10 of our all-time favourites...
1. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day – Wizzard
Well, who doesn’t?
2. Do They Know It’s Christmas – Band Aid
The original 1984 version, obviously. Featuring the legends Boy George, Sting and Bono.
3. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
The ultimate karaoke Christmas song. We may not be able to hit the high notes as well as Mariah, but we can sure as hell try!
4. Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade
Noddy Holder brings the euphoric, slightly drunken, Christmas vibe into the festive season.
5. Jingle Bell Rock – Bobby Helms
Who else immediately thinks back to the Mean Girls movie? *Hands up*
6. Last Christmas – Wham!
And the award for the cheesiest Christmas song of all time goes to…
7. Santa Claus Is Coming to Town – Bruce Springsteen
Because even ‘The Boss’ likes to get festive.
8. Stop the Cavalry (Wish I was at home for Christmas) - Jona Lewie
Dub a dub a dum dum, dub a dub a dum...
9. Fairytale Of New York – The Pogues & Kirsty McColl
You either love it, or hate it – and we love it!
10. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea
Weirdly, this song often does come on the radio as we’re driving home for Christmas – it’s like Chris Rea knows our every move!
Obviously these are only 10 of our favourites and there are many, many more amazingly festive Christmas songs. Let us know what your favourites are!
