Does yer Granny always tell ya that the old songs are the best?

Jings, crivvens, help ma boab! The royalty collecting society PRS has published a list of the most played Christmas songs of the past five years and it's surprising reading to say the least...

1. Wham! - Last Christmas
2. Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas? (Original Version)
3. The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York
4. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You
5. Bruce Springsteen - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
6. Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry
7. Wizzard - I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
8. Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody
9. Mud - Lonely This Christmas
10. Bing Crosby - White Christmas

Mind you, being the most played (George & Andrew) doesn't necessarily mean it's any good. If 40 is the new 30, then surely 8 is the new 1?

"It's Chriiiiiiiistmas!"
