My 5 Favourite Christmas Songs

It is, after all, that time of year! I’ll do a proper countdown from 5 to 1! Some choices may seem odd but hey, they are mine!

#5 Christmas Is Coming
A classic from forever! A Charlie Brown Christmas!!! Can’t get better from the classics department!

#4 Fuck Christmas – Eric Idle
Okay, so rude as it can possibly be. Bypass it if it offends your delicate sensibilities! I love this! Hysterical! An absolute classic from Eric Idle!

#3 Christmas Wrapping – The Waitresses
This may fall into the WTF category for people’s impressions of me. I’m a sappy sentimentalist at times. I just thought this was fun, different and a little goofy but nice!

#2 Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth – Bing Crosby and David Bowie
I remember watching this when it first aired. STUNNED to see Bowie with old Der Bingle. When I heard he was going to be on Bing’s Christmas special I couldn’t wait because I couldn’t imagine what they’d do. I was SO blown away!! Brilliant! Still gives me shivers!

#1 Fairytale of New York – The Pogues
This embraces all of it! It is touching, slightly rude, almost traditional and a little twisted!! There is nothing not to love about it! And it is, along with my #2 choice a must hear every single year! A touch of the Irish never hurts! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas everyone! Don’t be afraid to share your favourites in the comments section!!

    Great choice of Christmas songs!! Your top 2 are definitely my top 2 as well. It’s so sad that Kirsty left this earth so early. Merry Christmas to you Larry, and to your family.

    These ones are my Christmas songs, for me, this year. I love them very much.
    Both appeared, glistened, in my eyes, as the snow flakes were falling, with the glint, slowly, at night…

    The first song, found totally by chance, any snow flakes view under a microscope leads me to it..
    It is a real story, the most poignant, and tender, that could be felt and made in a Christmas time…
    With a sentimental vein, tears could tremble in the eyes…

    The Proposal

    The second is the new one from Coldplay, and I love everything about it.
    Coldplay – Christmas Lights

    There are so many songs…about peace on earth, about the joy to share, about the real meaning
    about help each other and carry each other, to give all the love for everyone everywhere who deserve
    for the goodness…because the simple fact of his very precious existence.

    Merry Christmas, Larry.
