Across the UK, there are some very split opinions on Christmas songs. Some love them, and others hate them. But, despite the marmite effect of Christmas songs, they’re something that most of us can’t avoid. Played in pretty much every shop and on every radio station, many of us, whether we love or hate Christmas songs, will have to listen to them at some point.
And, for tradesmen travelling from site to site, chances are they’re going to listen to their fair share of Christmas songs this month. So, Leasevan.co.uk decided to take a look into this, and put together the ultimate playlist of Christmas songs!
Asking their customers to name their favourite festive songs, Leasevan.co.uk were able to put together a top ten of the trades favourite Christmas songs.
At number 10 was Shakin Stevens’ ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’. The perfect sing-along tune, you can see why this made the top ten!
The number 9 spot was held by Slade’s ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’. Another incredibly catchy song, you can’t help but have a sing-along with this one.
Eartha Kitt’s ‘Santa Baby’ took the number 8 spot. With so many covers of this song, it’s not surprising to see it in the top ten. Everyone loves it!
At number 7 was Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’. A legendary song, this is a classic that you must simply listen to during the festive period.
The number 6 spot was held by The Ramone’s with ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)’. A great contrast to the classic carol like songs, this more upbeat track epitomizes what the holidays are all about. Now, of course, with the in-laws around, maintaining peace may be a lot easier said than done!
Coming in at number 5 though was Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’. A classic, and timeless tune, everyone dreams of a white Christmas!
At number 4 was John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s ‘Happy Christmas (War is Over)’. Just missing out on being in the top three, this one was a firm favourite among the trades.
But now, for the top three! The public’s very favourite Christmas songs… Have you got any guesses as to what they’ll be yet?
Well, in third place was Chris de Burgh’s ‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’.
At number two was Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’.
And finally, the nation’s favourite… ‘Fairytale of New York’ by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl!
