    Greg Lake - I believe in Father Christmas
    Bob Dylan - Must Be Santa (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8qE6WQmNus)
    Celtic Woman - Carol of the Bells/ Ray Conniff - Ring Christmas Bells (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYlq70973Ig) both versions good though
    Michael Buble & The Puppini Sisters - Jingle Bells (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlWkUGjoLRY)
    Felicity Lott - Twelve Days of Christmas
    Chris Rea - Driving Home for Christmas
    Scouting For Girls - Christmas in the Air
    Bowie & Bing - Little Drummer Boy (yep I'm in the minority)
    Annie Lennnox - God rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlsJD8RlhbI)

    Wham - Last Christmas is a good song, but for me it's a wham song and every time I hear Wham on the radio or TV, it gets turned over. I don't necessarily dislike their songs, but doing the switching has just become habit.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Re: Favourite Christmas Song

    For me it's I believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake, but I like most of the classic ones! Can't stand Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea though. I have no idea why!

    On this subject, this is something I wonder every year.....when was the last time someone made and released a truly "classic" Christmas song? I mean, if someone asked you to compile and release a double CD of Christmas songs, you'd be choosing the likes of Wizzard, Slade, Band Aid, John Lennon and Yoko etc etc etc. But which one of those choices of songs would be the most recent?

    Strikes me that most of the true classics were made in the 70s and 80s. Nothing recent springs to mind as being a "classic". The most recent one I can think of is All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey but that was made in 1994 - over 20 years ago! (Another one I don't personally like, but it's a popular "classic" one).

    So....anyone got the answer?

    What makes it a classic? I think a couple of the ones I listed above could be classed as classic in years to come. It will all be down to taste - I dislike a number of the current classic christmas records

    Re: Favourite Christmas Song

    Pretty hard to pick one, all Christmas records are great, picked six ones that I listen to alot :-

    Dominick The Donkey – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYlvfX3nwlc&feature=related

    Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgIwLeASnkw
    Marys Boy Child – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxm1FlLSfe4
    Merry Christmas Everyone – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeyHl1tQeaQ
    This Winter – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAj30JIsC4o

    KennyG would have been the seventh one, he can play the sax well.

    Re: Favourite Christmas Song

    I love the Killers Christmas songs (don't shoot me Santa, Joel the Lump of Coal etc)
    The Phil Spector Christmas album is amazing, but then again so are Mariah, Mud, Slade, Elvis, Bo Selecta etc

    All Christmas songs are fantastic, there are no bad ones.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done
