It’s Dusty Paw’s music month AND Christmas is only 16 DAYS away. So we had the tough job at Dusty Paw HQ to come up with our top 10 Christmas songs, with so many to choose from, we could easily have made a top 50. However, we have managed to whittle it down to our all time favourite top 10 Christmas songs, enjoy….
10. Wizzard – I wish it could be Christmas Everyday
To kick any Christmas music session off, Wizzard is the obvious choice. Despite being beaten to the number one spot for five consecutive weeks by Slade with Merry Xmas Everybody, we love it.
9. Chris Rea – Driving Home for Christmas
On its first release in 1988, Driving Home For Christmas reached a mere 53 in the UK chart, only slightly bettering this 19 years later in 2007 when it reached 33.
However, no Christmas play list is complete without it.
8. Dean Martin – Let it Snow!
Fact: Let It Snow marks the festive season with its cheery lyrics, there is actually no mention of Christmas at any point.
7. Mel & Kim – Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Brenda Lee’s original 1958 version of this is a cracker (sorry, couldn’t help it) but Mel & Kim’s 1987 Comic Relief version comes in at no. 7 for us…
6. Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby
There are roughly one million covers of this song, but for us Eartha did it best!
5. Wham! – Last Christmas
4. Slade – Merry Christmas Everybody
3. Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You
Nothing quite says Christmas like Mariah rolling about in the snow in a red snowsuit obvs…
2. Bing Crosby – White Christmas
White Christmas is an absolute classic so it’s not surprising it has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Bette Midler. Bing is the one for us though!
1. The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York
It was a tough decision, but in the end, The Pogues win hands down!
Merry Christmas from the team at Dusty Paw!
