With the time for playing the old Xmas songs out again (they even played them towards closing time at a certain Exeter club last night) I wondered what Xmas songs the panel are fond of?
My list reads something like:
Floating (\ Walking) In The Air - Aled Jones
With A Little Help From My Friends - The Beatles
When Children Rule The World - composed by Jim Steinman and ALW
Merry Xmas Everybody's Having Fun - Slade
Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens
Last Christmas - Wham!
Spaceman Came Travelling - Chris De Burgh
Another Rock'N'Roll Christmas - Child Porn Bloke (ie Gary Glitter)
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day - Roy Wood and Wizzard
Stop The Cavalry - Jona Lewie
New York Fairytale - The Pogues (and Kirsty MacColl)
Rocking Around The Christmas Tree - Mel & Kim
Go Change The World - Paul Cattermole, Jonathan Lee and Bradley McIntosh
Dancing In The Moonlight - Toploader
Christmas Time, Mistletoe And Wine - Cliff Richard
If You're Not The One - Daniel Bedingfield
Christmas Time - The Darkness
Some choices are, of course, idiosyncratic and the songs have no geneal connection with Xmas but are simply the result of personal connotations.
I presume most people have heard of them all, though?
