How can you leave this song out if it received airplay through the radio?
because its censored
Fair enough I accept negative response. Anymore good Xmas songs? I'm surprised that no one hasn't mentioned Wham's Last Xmas.

I find it heartning that despite 2 songs, Mariah still sits 0 votes.

Did anyone like the Xmas 1986 song 'Join The Caravan Of Love' by the Housemartins?

But she did get back into the charts this week, thanks to downloads... 8 of the top 40 this week are Christmas songs.

And Caravan of Love is fantastic.

I like the Fairytale of New York, especially the bit where they insult each other. :lol:

I'm already p1ssed off with Xmas songs. They've played them non-stop on our local radio station for the last week. Normally I'd just switch to another station but our work radio is so crap that it can only pick up the one station.

I don't see why they can't play the odd everyday song to break up all the Xmas ones. :evil: Yesterday (Sat) I think they must have played every variation of White Christmas. Apart from the singers they're all the same song anyway! At this rate I'll be spending my Xmas in a padded cell somewhere. :shock:

Who likes the new Cascada dance cover song of 'Last Chrismas'?

I do (but that's only because I fancy Cascada :wink: :mrgreen: ).

Now there's a group that's got everywhere but using the exact same musical backing track for each song and given a slightly altered number of words to sing to token blonde.

If you read carefully I didn't diss her at all. I don't believe she has anything to do with what she's given to sing, a job she does perfectly well.

Whoever is behind it may well be the laziest man in the world though.
