    Lets get in the Christmas spirit with the universal language of song. If like me you work on a shop floor I understand this time of the year you may be forced to listen to Christmas songs all day long but come on lets share some jovial songs we love or loath

    Here are some that are huge in the Uk (I'm not sure how well known elsewhere) so I have huge happy nostalgic family memories of, there are probably loads of others I can't think of right now. As for ones I'm not keen on they all seem to centre on Cliff Richard, he gave me the creeps as a kid

    John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - YouTube

    Slade - Merry Christmas Everybody - OFFICIAL VIDEO - YouTube

    The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale Of New York (Official Video)) - YouTube

    Wizzard - I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday - YouTube

    I'm probably alone in this, but that Pogues song gets right up my nose.

    I like pretty much anything by the Trans Siberian Orchestra and Manheim Steamroller.
    Though, can't forget Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song and "I am Santa Clause".

    I'm impressed that someone else has actually heard of "Souped-Up Snowmobile" :p 

    How the hell did I forget this one? I would sooner eat my own face than listen to that song.

    This may be a good album to check out, then: We Wish You a Metal X-Mas and a Headbangin' New Year. Other than a terrible version of "Silent Night", where the lead singer just screams the lyrics, it's surprisingly good.

    I also love their music. I have all the CDs and their one DVD release.

    I can't stand John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War Is Over). It would be so much bearable if we didn't have to hear Yoko's horrid voice.

    I'm probably the only one here who loves “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”.

    If I'm not, please let me know.

    I'm not a fan of it, but Taylor Swift can do it well :)
