On the nineth day of Christmas ... Top 5 favourite Christmas songs

My most loved song has to be 'Fairytale of New York' performed by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. I think this is a favourite for many people but I think it is also a marmite song - you either love it or hate it. The song, when originally released, only made it to number two in the charts, however as the years have gone by, the song is always one of the most requested Christmas songs. Most people can recall singing along to this song at the top of their voices because lets face it, whether you have an amazing voice or just can't help hitting those bum notes, everyone can enjoy a great sing song.

Coming a close second is 'Merry Christmas Everybody' performed by Slade. The first few notes are all you need to hear to know exactly what song was coming on. I always enjoy songs that have an uplifting spirit and create a party atmosphere.

Number three in the list has to be 'The little drummer boy/Peace on Earth' performed by Bing Crosby & David Bowie. This song performed by two music legends remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.

Number four is 'Last Christmas' performed by Wham, a favourite by many, almost everyone I've spoken to, has a memory of singing this song whilst thinking of an ex.

Lastly at number five, is 'Rocking around the Christmas tree' performed by Mel Smith & Kim Wilde. The song and video are a great comedy act and is a song that never tires.
