If you aren’t the type of person that loves to belt out a Christmas classic at this time of year, I don’t think we can be friends. Ever since I was a kid I have had a huge love for Christmas songs. So much so that it is actually quite difficult for me to narrow it down to just five of my favourites.
Just to let you know this list is in no particular order as I’m not very good at ordering things. Enjoy!
Last Christmas by Wham!
Who doesn’t love this absolute classic? I find it hard to explain just why I love this song, but like most Christmas songs it holds a lot of nostalgia for me. My mom has always been a massive George Michael fan so this song would be played at full volume every Christmas.
I also performed this song myself at a Christmas concert at school and I loved every second of it.
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Michael Bublé
Although I do like the original by Darlene Love, you just can’t beat a bit of Bublé at Christmas. This song makes me feel instantly festive and it is usually the first Christmas song I’ll play to kickstart the festive period.
Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End) by The Darkness
This is not a song you usually find on people’s top Christmas songs, but again this has extreme nostalgia for me. The music video, although a little strange, holds memories of my sister and myself dancing to Christmas songs at my nan’s house when we were like ten and eight years old.
Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens
Another absolute classic. I’m pretty sure my nan (different from the one I mentioned on the previous song) used to have an electronic Christmas tree that used to play this song. You would have to clap to activate it and I remember that I used to get in trouble a lot for making it sing constantly.
This song is just so happy and cheerful that you can’t not love it. Well I suppose you could hate it but that would make you a grinch wouldn’t it.
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard
I can’t not mention this Christmas banger that was born in my home city. Birmingham isn’t great for a lot of things, but there have been some good bands born there over the years. Not that I’ve ever listened to anything else by Wizzard. I was actually convinced as a child that they dressed as they do on this music video all the time. Even as an adult I’m not quite sure that they don’t.
