Favourite or worst Xmas song

Following on from the Xmas party thread, what are people's favourite or most hated Xmas songs? My favourite is 'Saviour's day' by Cliff Richard. The reason for this is that you get a window into what Cliff believes Christmas day should look like. A village, by a cliff (an actual cliff, not him), old ladies leaving church, children running around the old ladies, him spinning around, singing about Jesus.

It leads me to believe that Cliff now despises Xmas and the commercialisation of a christian celebration. Cliff's view of the traditional Xmas as referenced above is but a distant memory, as the John Lewis advert is now what most people in modern society associate with the festive season.

  • Worst by a long way is 'Last Christmas' by Wham !!
  • Favourites: 'I want an alien for Christmas' by Fountains of Wayne; 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses and 'It's Christmas Time' by Status Quo

    No worries mate:-) I just like the video and getting that window into Cliff's thoughts. It's not actually a song I will defend if someone said they hated it
  • I think virtually all of them are shite.

    I'll make an exception for "Driving Home for Christmas" by Chris Rea, and "All I want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey (the latter only if accompanied by the video, and if I'm alone in the room when it's on)
  • Best: Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses
    Worst - Mistletoe & Wine by Cliff
  • Worst: of all them
  • Bing Crosby White Christmas playing christmas morning, love it
