Best Xmas pop song?

Postby boxerscott » Sat Dec 23, 2017 12:08 am

For me , The Pretenders, 2000 miles (I miss you) Sad. Chris Rea, Driving home for Christmas. Happy.

Other than that it is all just for the kids.

Its got to be Greg Lake for me, closely followed by the Poges/Kirsty MacColl.

Greg Lakes's lyrics sums up Christmas perfectly for me, I'm not religious (thank god :wink: ) but I do like that people are a little nicer to each other for a short while, and it is nice to meet up with friends and family.

Happy Holidays to all :D

+1 for the Greg Lake song. On the jollier song front, Elton John and Step into Christmas is another favourite of mine.

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
