Fairytale of New York by The Pogues. Not very traditional so I'll also put Silent Night. I had to sing it solo one Christmas in Malling Church and I was reeeeally good, but not as good as Nelly the old lady who used to sing in the row behind me and scare the sh*t out of me cos she smelled fishy and breathed down my neck. Also like Little Drummer boy with Bing and Bowie.

The Pogues have to be top of the list but I also have a soft spot for 'I believe in Father Christmas' by Greg Lake as it reminds me of Christmas when I was a kid.

For me it would have to be Jona Lewie - "Stop The Cavalry" or Paul McCartney - "Wonderful Christmastime"

I must say for me that the Pogues song is the worst Xmas song along with Away in a Manger when sung by young children. For me Hark the herald angels sing is the best carol.

'All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth'. As I get older it becomes appropriate again.

I like O Come All Ye Faithful, especially the bit that gets louder and louder,
a close second is Ding Dong merrily On High
Shall I put some Christmas background music on here?

Fairytale of New York by a mile, although I've just been introduced to Carol of the bells and I rather like that too.

"Santa Claus Conquers the Martians", available on you-tube and is one of the worst films ever made (so bad it's hilarious)

I drove all over Cornwall last year looking for a copy of 'It;s a Wonderful Life', truly I did. I looked right up to Christmas Eve, so upset was I not to have it. Christmas was not the same without it. It's magic.This year I will be packing it before anything else......
If we're talking Christmas songs any of the above get my vote - the Pogues, Greg Lake, Mc Cartney etc....the only one I object to is 'Do they know it's Christmas time' as I used to work in Virgin and they tortured me with it 50 times a day for 5 weeks in 2006.
