Christmas Songs!

Christmas is coming! I've been thinking about doing something on the blog to celebrate that fact, but the only things I could think of would take more time than I had to organise it all. Then I heard a Christmas song on the radio (thank you, Slade!), and had a brain wave! Why not ask people on Twitter what their favourite Christmas songs are, and share them?! So I did!

Laura of Sister Spooky said:

@sisterspooky: I wish it could be Christmas everyday! I can't help dancing and singing along badly to it.

And it's one of my faves too!

I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard

Holly Bourne, YA debut author of Soulmates (coming in Autumn 2013), said:

@holly_bourneYA: Robert Downey Jnr's cover of 'River' from when he was Larry in Ally McBeal. *fans face*

River by Robert Downey Jr.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a video of Robert Downey Jr. singing this song all the way through. This was the coolest one I could find!

C.J. Harper, YA debut author of The Dissappeared (coming 31st January 2013), said:

@cjharperauthor: Fairy Tale of New York. Love it.

Samantha Shannon, New Adult debut author of The Bone Season (coming 12th September 2013), said:

@say_shannon: 'Fairytale of New York' (The Pogues) and 'A Spaceman Came Travelling' (Chris de Burgh).

Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl

A Spaceman Came Travelling by Chris de Burgh

Again, unfortunately, I couldn't find a good version of Chris de Burgh performing this song. This is the best quality sound I could find.

@HannahJade__: Driving home for Christmas - I like to listen to it when I'm, er, going home for Christmas. Oh no! I forgot about Last Christmas. This also means I'm now listening to Xmas playlists at work...thanks Jo :P

And another favourite is Last Christmas!

@Fiction_Fan: Proper Crimbo. No one ever picks that and it's my absolute fave :D

Proper Crimbo by Bo Selecta

Wishing you a 
Merry Christmas 
and a wonderfully 
Happy New Year!


  1. 3 of my all time favourite Christmas songs! Wizzard! Bo Selecta and The Pogues. AMAZING SONGS!

    Merry Christmas! :)

    1. Merry Christmas to you too, Ryan! Such great songs! Though Bo Selecta's isn't a fave, it's good for a giggle! :)
