I work in a store with piped music. All Christmas music is annoying, but anything by Cliff Richards makes me want to go postal! :lol:

It's toooo early :(

But, since you ask, "Fairytale Of New York" is my favourite (and is mine and my OH's song :oops: ) but it's not Xmas til you hear "Stop The Cavalry" by Jonah Lewie.

I like 'Fairytale of New York' too, but I love '2000 miles' by the Pretenders. It's not overly Christmassy and I love Chrissy Hyndes voice :oops:

I'm not keen on 'Happy Christmas (War is Over)' as it's so depressing and makes me realise that things haven't changed since it was written :(

Ha ha ha , Cliff Richards. Yeah I agree. Those are the ones that stick in your head and go round and round while trying not to hum them. How do they do it? :lol: I don't want to think about them yet, it's too early to have them in my head!

yes far too early, dec 1st is soon enough but i love getting a tree ready and wrapping presents (not as much as opening them, like a big kid then)

Jethro Tull done a nice "Christmas Song" the first time i heard it was with headphones on and in stereo (yes there was mono first for you young uns out there) I jumped a mile at the end when he said "hey santa, pass us that bottle will you" from that day on i have been grey :lol:

Most annoying? Definitely Cliff Richard, especially Mistletoe and Whine (sic) closely followed by Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman!

I quite like the old standards by Wizzard and Slade and Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee.

I like Emmerson, lake and palmer's 'I believe in father christmas' and I also enjoy 'stop the cavalry' and 'Fairytale of New York' - I like 'here it is merry christmas'....at the begining, but by christmas day it starts to get a bit too much :? But the worst, really really really has to be Cliff Richards.....what a bore....oh, I heard he's bringing another one out this year :? what joy :roll:

Never mind, hon, I read in the paper recently that the little girl soprano, Faryl Smith (from Britain's Got Talent) is teaming up with Andrew Johnston to produce a song which hopefully will challenge Cliffie for the No 1 Xmas spot. I really think it's time he retired gracefully - I admit I quite like his latest offering Thank You, which is autobiographical, but listen to it - it really sounds as if he hasn't got his teeth in, lol! :?

Yes ...it's too early...it's too early for "x-mas" foods, cards and gift ideas to be on the shelves too, but they are... :shock:

I've always liked the different xmas songs - Christmas song by Jethro Tull has already been mentioned by Carp, it actually comes from a complete xmas album by them, really very good!
Of course, fairytale of New York, but how about A spaceman came travelling by Chris de Burgh? I believe in father Christmas by Greg Lake I've always liked and Christmas was a friend of mine by Fay Lovsky is so nice and quirky, just different!! :D :D
