A Collection of Classics.

It's the 1st of December and I don't know about you but I love a good Christmas songs.
Nothing says Christmas like scoffing the tub of chocolates, sipping your mulled wine and singing along (...badly) to your favourites.
Everyone has the ones they love. The one's that instantly fill you with Christmas spirit.

Here is my mini playlist for this Christmas time.



The Pogues and Kirsty Maccoll- Fairytale of New York.

For me, this is such a classic.
I'd love to meet someone who knew all the words to his part...but it's brilliant. This is the song that everyone thinks they can sing after a few glasses of mulled wine.

Released back in 1987 this song has been cited as one of the best Christmas songs of all time. In the UK, this is the most played Christmas song of the 21st century.




Wonderful Christmas Time- Paul McCartney

Poster of the movie Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.jpgThis reminds me of one of my favourite Christmas films Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer: The Movie. I used to watch it over and over at this time of year and still would if I had the dvd.

Although covered many times by artists such as Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato, this version is still the most played and loved.







Merry X-Mas Everybody- Slade

It's CHRISTMAAAAAAS!

Anyone who loves Slade's classic song will have practically sung that line.
Admittedly I didn't actually know what this song was called...
I had a Christmas play when I was very young in which this song featured. There was dance moves and everything (and boy my family don't let me forget it)...
This is a must for any Christmas playlist.




Step Into Christmas-Elton John

Sir Elton John has many classics under his belt and this is one of them.
The upbeat tune has everyone tapping their feet and dancing along.

A great Christmas song.




Mistletoe and Wine- Cliff Richard

Making it to number one many moons ago, this Christmas classic is played over and over.
I'm not usually one to play religious themed songs as I have no religion but this is the exception. Despite the theme, the song is popular with many people.





I Wish it Could Be Christmas Every Day- Wizzard

This completely crazy video draws me in every single time.
It's mad, It's weird and I love it.






So whack on some tunes and wrap some presents. Christmas is on it's way!
