        2) Lonely This Christmas - Mud
        3) Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens
        4) Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid (1984, not the later versions)
        5) Mistletoe and Wine - Sir Cliff Richard
        6) I Believe in Father Christmas - Greg Lake
        7) Wonderful Christmas Time - Sir Paul McCartney. (Ironically enough, I was listening to Heart Xmas yesterday evening as I was preparing the evening meal, and it came on just as I was putting some Linda McCartney sausages into the oven - how ironic is that?)
        8) Merry Christmas (War is Over) - John Lennon and Yoko Ono
        9) White Christmas - Bing Crosby's version only
        10) Step into Christmas - Sir Elton John

        14) Saviour's Day - Sir Cliff Richard again
        15) Feliz Navadad - that Spanish Christmas song
        16) Rocking Around the Christmas Tree - the original, although Mel (Smith) and Kim (Wilde) did a version for Comic Relief in 1987.
        17) Wombling Merry Christmas - Mike Batt
        18) Father Christmas Do Not Touch Me - The Goodies
        19) Christmas Alphabet - Dickie Valentine. (First Christmas number one to be a song about Christmas)
        20) Millennium Prayer - Sir Cliff Richard yet again. (Played at a family funeral).
        I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
        There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
        I'm having so much fun
        My lucky number's one
        Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

                I have always liked the lyric: "look to the future now, it's only just begun" on Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody - it always feels like optimism for the year ahead as we end one year and start another, and that is why I chose that one first.

                      I have always said that there's nothing quite like listening to that song on a personal radio on a bus after you have done your Christmas shopping on the Friday before Christmas.

                        Yeh true George mate ... which is why 1 Day i wanna go to America (idealy at Xmas) and have a Fairytale Of New York playing as you fly in over Pearl Harbour in New York ... that'd just be the best ever , consideringthe lyrics they've got Cars big as Bar's", and "the wind goes right through you it's no place for the Old and "Sinatra was swinging, all the drunks they were singing"!!

                          That 1 the late David Bowie did with the also longdearted Bing Crosby ... Piece On Earth/Little Drummer Boy was amazing and i adore that video

                          The harmonising is beyond sensational - Singing two songs 2gether at once in tune without it sounding daft/or out of tune takes something

                          To think too Bing only recorded that song a month before his passing too - was equaly amazing a fete , added to the faith he obviously had in David and v versa to create such a hit!! That shows what we always knew about David as a great Singer of many talents - as not many can harmonise to that degree 1 bit I think (as well as that 2 seperate songs are sung together) as was the case for Bing and David!
