    I agree.

    If I was to chose one though, it would be Band Aid II.

    Is that the song with line "there'll be no snow in Africa this christmas"?

    It'd be a fucking shock if there was wouldn't it?

    Best Christmas song? This --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfs2Hbkouro

    A couple of mates of mine thought they could write a better Christmas song, plus I got to cameo.

    Honourable mention for Fairytale of New York & Stop the Cavalry.

    easily Fairytale of New York. the lyrics are beautiful.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm really into Sister Winter by Sufjan Stevens atm. I'm listening to it on Youtube all the time. I think I'm gonna order his Songs For Christmas CD.

    ETA: fuck it, I just have. £10.99 for a 5CD boxed set. That's a lot of Xmas right there.

    Fairytale of new york. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about it. Except when they tried to censor the word 'faggot'. Talk about the irony of censorship.:lol:

    If I had to choose one song that would immediately remind me of christmas, it would have to be Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody'.

    Just don't get me started on band aid 20, that one with the guy who wears the big masks of celebrities or any of cliff Richard's new stuff. Rubbish!

    Except when you take some of the lyrics literally. Then it's incredibly gross!:lol:

    I honestly don't think I've ever met anyone who has considered the song literally.

    Maybe not, but now I've mentioned it, you'll never think of it in the same way again;) .

    "I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying I love you
    I meant it"

    No wonder she left him:lol:

    Having finally listened to the full 5CD boxed set, I'm gonna have to nominate Star Of Wonder by Sufjan Stevens. Absolutely awesome song.
