Top 10 Christmas Songs?

I'm in the office today and have just been having a discussion about what would make our Top 10 Christmas Songs list with the Managing Director. I know, all in a hard days work but honestly the construction industry can be a bit dull so whatever it takes to liven up a day huh.  

This is the kind of subject that really gets us debating - I mean, is it still okay to include Gary Glitter on our festive playlists or should we pretend that he doesn't exist? Was Chris Rea's Driving Home for Christmas ruined by a supermarket advert and is Fairytale of New York the most overplayed Christmas song ever? (Although saying that, I don't think I've heard it this year...). 

Here's what I came up.  I've tried to order them but you know, on any given day it could all change.

10. Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt


9. Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens


 Winter Wonderland - Doris Day


7. Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses


6. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - 


5.  Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Mel and Kim


4. O Holy Night - Andy Williams


3. Jingle Bell Rock - Brenda Lee


2. Last Christmas - Wham

1.  All I Want for Christmas is You - Mariah Carey


Sorry for being a bit predictable with my number one choice but it IS Christmas to me. I was 14 years old when this was released and it reminds me of snogging boys at the Christmas disco. I won't lie to you.

I've perhaps somewhat controversially chosen the Mel & Kim version of Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree but I could have quite easily put the Brenda Lee original too as I love it equally. I've plumped for Mel & Kim though as it reminds me of my childhood and I love the video.

I'd be interested to hear how your own choices would differ to mine so leave me a comment - or even write your own blog post, let me know and I'll check it out!

  1. I think that list is pretty much spot on - although I would add Cliff's Mistletoe and Wine in there because my mum would always play it on Christmas Eve before I went to bed :)

  2. I can never resist Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie, nothing helps me feel more Chistmassy than this

  6. I love the Mel & Kim version of Rockin' around the Christmas tree! The video and the song are so cheesy and we just don't have Christmas songs like that anymore.

    The only one I would add to the list is East 17's Stay Another Day. Not strictly a Christmas song, but they jingled it up a bit with some sleigh bells and it got to Christmas No. 1.

  13. Oil pulling does a hell of a great deal more than brighten your teeth.
    Google this ancient remedy... it is used to DETOX your entire
    system of bacteria, virus and fungal infections. It is seriously amazing, eat it, massage eachother with it, bathe in it.
    Only caution with swishing for 15 mins (Oil pulling) is not
    far more than 3 times per week if you have dental amalgams fillings,
    for precisely the same reasons above, it pulls it
    into your mouth and you may absorb also considerably into your
    system.

  15. Diet regime is more essential than exercising, it is possible to physical exercise all day
    long, but if you don't consume right then it won't really make a difference.

  17. Unless your target audience can be a bunch of crack addicts, I wouldn't suggest employing the phrase "crack cocaine" as being a comparison to a protein. It's not a term
    really synonymous with health and fitness, wellness or something good.
    ..unless related to destroying types lifestyle. Just a
    thought.
