this one by the Water Babies

I love this song, but it's criminally unknown, therefore I think you should all buy it and make it christmas number one.

It has to be Fairytale of New York, because Shane Macgowan is a genius songwriter. Plus I have a crush on him :$

Last Christmas I bought the 'Funny Looking Angels' album by Smith and Burrows and played it non-stop on the drive from Oxford to Edinburgh. It's a mix of original songs and covers. I think it's my favourite Christmas album now.

My all time is the Pogues one

Like the Phil Spector album and some of the Motown tracks - Jackson 5 & Stevie Wonder. Havent heard the Otis one will have to check that out.

Hate the traditional ones shops inflict on us angry try to avoid shopping because of it.
