Alternative Xmas Song Chart

When you think of Christmas tunes apart from carols you probably think of Slade, The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl, Wham and flipping Cliff Richard. So for your relief & delectation I present a chart of alternative songs for Xmas

And in keeping with the season of goodwill, I shall refrain from my usual snarky comments appended to each song.

Festive greetings to one and all of my blog followers and here's to a good 2015

Thanks Marc - the perfect antidote for the Carey Song which I have been avoiding with about a 97% success rate for weeks! :-D
I shall find a moment or three to listen to them all over the next couple of days!
best wishes to you and yours this festive season D x
