Part of my get into the Christmas spirit plan, has been to play lots of Christmas songs, my all time favourite is the Fairytale of New York, it always makes me feel like Christmas. I thought, being as it's Christmas Eve I'd give you my top five Christmas songs:
Happy Christmas,war is over.
I love this track, it seems an odd choice for a Christmas song. I remember a friend complaining a few years back that she couldn't go anywhere without hearing it one Christmas, but at least I always know that it's just around the corner when I start to hear it played.
Stop the cavalry
As Christmas songs go, this isn't the most lively or jolly of tunes, but there's something that I just like about this. It's possibly due to being able to relate to the idea of wishing I was home for Christmas, all be it for very different reasons.
Peace on Earth/Little drummer boy
This is a beautiful song, it's one that I've decided that I love recently. the two vocals together are just lovely though.
I believe in Father Christmas
This song reminds me of being little, I remember Dad playing it on the record player at Christmas. It's so magical and again another beautiful track, perfect for this time of year.
Fairytale of New York
And here it is, my number one Christmas song, the fairytale of New York. I've loved this for years, and as I said before, this always makes me feel like Christmas and gets me into the festive mood.
So there we have it, my top five songs, and seeing as I've now heard the fairytale of New York, it must be Christmas, so I hope that you all have a good one.
