Nothing gets me in the festive spirit like a good Christmas song, so just for you, here's a countdown of my top 10 songs to get in the Christmas mood
1. Santa Claus is coming to town - The Jackson 5
This is what it's all about! Catchy song about the big man himself!
2. I believe in Father Christmas - Gregg Lake
This was always my favourite at school from my school choir days - I think it made me feel grown up to sing a song about Santa not being real?
3. Stop the Cavalry - Jona Lewie
No idea why, cause it's actually quite a sad song, but this one always makes me think its Christmas! And yes, I'm sitting at my desk marching right now, I know you are too!
4. Last Christmas - Wham!
A classic. Everyone has someone this song makes them think of.
5. Mistletoe & Wine - Cliff Richard
I may get sacked for this one cause I know the boss hates it, but this song was playing during my first ever school Christmas Dinner. I must have only been about 5, but I can still remember sitting looking at the big tree and eating with my friends in those silly cracker hats!
6. Once in Royal David's City
Everyone has a favourite Christmas carol and this is mine. The solo on the first verse always sends shivers down my spine.
7. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
This one is for my boo, I know he'd never forgive me if he's favourite didn't make the list! Besides, there's nothing like a punch up at Christmas!
8. A Spaceman Came Travelling - Chris De Burgh
I just love how random it is!
9. When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney - Billy Cotton & His Band
This one is just pure silly, but I promise you'll have it stuck in your head for the next week :-)
10. Winter Wonderland - Dean Martin
A classic but it always makes me smile!
So, what about you? What's your favourite Christmas Song?
