Repost: 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!!
