    Nice idea, but at least two great songs I'd like to have seen included - Greg Lake's "I Believe In Father Christmas" and The Darkness' "Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)". Bah, humbug!

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Silent Night. When you see it done by a big choir in one of the cathedral services.
    Liverpool is one of the wonders of Britain,
    What it may grow to in time, I know not what.

    I'd have also voted for Christmas Time by The Darkness if it had been listed.

    What?! No Santa Baby by Madonna? Eartha Kitt's good, but Madonna's better. :p

    Also missing December Will Be Magic Again by Kate Bush; Mr Hankey The Christmas Poo by Mr Hankey and Proper Crimbo by Bo Selecta.

    What makes me laugh is there's only one line in Stop The Cavalry which makes it a xmas song: "Wish I was at home for Christmas". Anyway, that gets my vote.
    Life's what you make it....

    "I've got one, two, three, [STRIKE]four[/STRIKE], [STRIKE]five[/STRIKE]... senses working overtime..", XTC. :sad:

    Life beyond voluntary work scares me, but what else is there? :cry:

    I voted for Fairytale of New York - my favourite Xmas song is actually Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, but the Judy Garland version, not Frank Sinatra's or anyone else's. Christmas Wrapping and I Believe In Father Christmas are good choices too :-)

    Must respectfully disagree - Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby has a much more sultry raunch than Madonna, who is a *known* Material Girl. Eartha manages to convince you she's really offering something...

    That said, my favourite Christmas listening is any child singing a carol. It can be a school choir in a church, or a schoolboy scrubbing in the shower, but it just reduces me to a happily quivering nostalgic mince-pie snaffling wreck.

    Greg Lake's "I Believe In Father Christmas" without a doubt!
    Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorn is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that she is pink; we logically know that she is invisible because we can't see her."
