Favourite Xmas song

OK, so we've got a thread for the most annoying Xmas song, but which do you enjoy the most?

Yeah, I know, Mariah is added twice. Purely because she is the only artist I know of that sings 'Christmas', though I have heard other unknowns, too. And there are none of the more traditional songs, either (just coz I chose not to list them).

My choice? Tough choice. Either Shaky or Darkness. :P

Gotta be Fairytale of New York. Gritty and realistic. Not everyone will be having a jolly merry xmas this year and this reminds us all. Not the best chrimbo song to belt on on the karaoke after 12 pints though...

Great song that is. Didnt realise for ages that was Tim Burgess singing it. Had that on cassette single yearssss ago but was happy when i eventually found it on a torrent site somewhere.

I did wonder if that Stain on Humanity might prove controversial. However, as this Poll concerns itself with the song, not the artist, I listed the song. As Christmas songs go it does everything it needs to.

I like Jonah, Greg and the Pogues a lot, but John Lennon needs to be up their and not just lumped in the 'other' section.

So in protest I am going home to sit naked in my bedroom for a month.

How painful was Dizzee Rascal's rapping on the new version? Talk about shoe-horned...
