I always nee a blast of Wizard 'I wish it could be Christmas everyday' and Jingle Bell Rock and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree for dancing.

Got to be Fairy Tale of New York

Artaylar Mon 14-Dec-20 16:05:04

Fairy Tale of New York is the just best yggdrasil

I also like Greg Lake's A Spaceman Came Travelling

Stop The Cavalry

Sorry, should have said Stop The Cavalry by Jona Lewie

tanith Mon 14-Dec-20 17:54:48

‘Walking in the Air’ please.

Gaudete by Steeleye Span, and In Dulci Jubilo by Mike Oldfield, as well as all the others people have mentioned.

This is a heartwarming clip of a family arriving into Belfast City Airport from Ohio to be reunited with their family for Christmas.

They were greeted by by a Community Gospel Choir singing Joy to the World. Flash mob style.

Maria Carey “All I want for Christmas is you”. Wonderful!

Sorry lemongrove but have always hated Stop The Cavalry.

Mary's Boy Child by Boney M - it's got some proper bounce to it tchgrin

Spinnaker Tue 15-Dec-20 08:04:18

It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas by Michael Bublé. IMO this is the best version ever tchgrin

Lexisgranny Tue 15-Dec-20 08:12:45

“O Holy Night” by Mariah Carey. “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole

honeyrose Tue 15-Dec-20 08:16:14

I also love Fairy Tale of New York but haven’t heard it on the radio this year. I did hear that the BBC objected to a couple of words in the song. Never mind, I can always listen to it by playing one of my Christmas CDs.

Judy Garland singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

For me it has to be Wham's Last Christmas.
