Love it or hate it, Christmas is a time for silly jumpers, ridiculous decorations and, most importantly, a selection of songs that everyone knows, pretends to hate, but will nevertheless belt out throughout the festive season.
As we approach the 25th we thought it would be fun to make a playlist featuring some of these pieces of musical-Marmite. We’ll keep a neutral stance and let you decide for yourself – is it a Christmas Cracker or a Festive Flop?
The Pogues – Fairytale of New York
Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas
Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
Wham! – Last Christmas
Justin Bieber – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
Christina Aguilera – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
There we have it – a mixture of classic, and maybe not so classic(?) Christmas songs, but whether you are a self-confessed scrooge or love this time of year, I’m sure this little playlist will come in very handy if you’re looking for a bit of festive singalong!
