Don't Let The Bells End

The plan for today was to post last year’s Facebook countdown of Jonny’s Top 25 Xmas Songs That Aren’t Annoying And Haven’t Been Played To Death. However Facebook doesn’t seem to archive posts from twelve months ago so I’ll have to try to remember what songs I chose, using my powers of long-term recall.

Badly Drawn Boy – Donna & Blitzen
The Beatles – Everywhere It’s Christmas
Billy Mack – Christmas Is All Around
Clarence Karter – Back Door Santa
Dido – Christmas Day
Erasure – She Won’t Be Home
Eels – Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas
Elvis – Santa Bring Me Baby Back To Me
The Fab Four – Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
The Feeling – Feels Like Christmas
Foundations Of Wayne – I Want An Alien For Christmas
Gabrielle Cilmi – Warm This Winter
Girls Aloud – Not Tonight Santa
Jethro Tull - Ring Out, Solstice Bells
Kate Bush – December Will Be Magic Again
The Kinks – Father Christmas
KT Tunstall – Mele Kalikimaka
Manic Street Preachers – Ghost Of Christmas
Monty Python – Christmas In Heaven
Nina – Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown
Pet Shop Boys – It Doesn’t Often Snow At Christmas
The Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)
Robbie Williams – Walk This Sleigh
Rolf Harris – Six White Boomers
Squeeze – Christmas Day
Sparks – Thank God It’s Not Christmas
Stevie Wonder – What Christmas Means To Me
The Wombles – Wombling Merry Christmas
XTC – Thanks For Christmas

The more observant amongst you may notice this is more than 25 songs. I’m pretty sure I’ve left some out, too. Can’t remember. Bah!

  1. Half Man Half Biscuit's "It's Clichéd to Be Cynical at Christmas" and Kevin Bloody Wilson's "Hey Santa Claus" are worth a listen
