    Do any exist?

    I've been tasked with compiling a Christmas CD and I want to filter out all the crap... Chris Rea's Driving home for Christmas to name but one...

    So what Christmas songs don't make you want to stap your ears with a rusty nitting needle? Even better, are there any that you actually like?

    "Stop The Cavalry" by Jonah Lewie is my favourite Christmas song, sort of downbeat and happy at the same time!

    Oh and even though I don't like The Pogues much "Fairy Tale of New York" with Kirsty McColl as guest vocalist works rather well too.

    Blablabla also suggested: Otis Redding and Louis Armstrong.

    But he's refusing to post in this thread!

    Doesn't the East 17 hit have bells in it? You can't get more Christmassy than that!

    Phil Spector's A Christmas gift for you is the only album worth buying. The wall of sound (and 60's soul)at it's finest.

    Stay Another Day gets my vote.

    /slaps Ted

    What's wrong with Mad World excellent tune.

    What was that Christmas #1 (I think) by Frankie Goes To Hollywood?

    Jeesus out of that lot the only ones that are anyway passable without having to pour cement into your lugholes are:

    2003: Michael Andrews and Gary Jules - Mad World
    1995: Michael Jackson - Earth Song
    1994: East 17 - Stay Another Day
    1991: Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody / These Are The Days Of Our Lives

    Heh, I wasn't refusing to post, I went home and I'd get serious cold shoulder from my girl if I used the net at home while she was there.

    I've been trying to remember the titles of those soul carols but I'm failing miserably.

    I know one of them was O Tannenbaum in german but I'm at a loss as to what the others are.

    How can you forget Last Christmas by Wham!

    That's an Xmas compilation track in anyones book.

    Oh and Wizard's Chrimbo (/winks at peej) offering, I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday is a no brainer.

    When my Dad was still alive we always used to sing 'Seven Drunken Nights' as we sat and digested the first course of Christmas Dinner. It was the five-verse version without the last two dirty verses, of course.

    The Dubliners did a version of it.

    You can't. I've tried. That's the problem.

    Yeah, it's a great song. My Dad also used to sing Hot Ashphalt and Quare Bungle Rye

    He'd also traditionally recite one or two Stanley Holloway monologues, mainly Albert and the Lion.
