Favourite Christmas Tracks

Discussion in 'The Clubhouse Bar' started by mohamed_ali12, Dec 21, 2009.

  1. I'm pretty fed up of the selection of 20 or so christmas songs that keep being played on every radio station, so i think it would be fun to find some alternatives to the usuals.

    Covers and the like a fine, as well as obscure ones.

    This one featured on the Scott Mills show and i'm sure you'll enjoy:

    Magnus Carlsson - Wrap Myself in Paper
     
  2. Forum Ad Advertisement

    That Mumford and Sons record could class as one couldn't it? Sounds very Christmassy, and actually good.
    Failing that, there's always Killing in the Name. :)

    I hate them all, except this one which is a classic, one everyone in the pub can sing along to when it comes on:

    Fairytale Of New York

    That guy is the straightest fella I've ever seen. I guess he's wrapping himself in paper for a slew of hot girls, right?

    I know it's irrelevant, but that clip reminded me of Bruno collaborating with Gareth Thomas on a christmas song.

    This was my choice last year, and it still hasn't changed. FONY is amazing.

    Saw the Pogues a couple of years back, on their christmas tour, and during that they had snow machines spraying the crowd, was quality

    didn't you say you want "something Christmassy"?

    Clearly there's no pleasing some people.

    Dan Lydiate dueting with N-Dubz, covering a Cheryl Cole song should just about do it :p

    When you're on youtube you copy the embed thing that's just below the track information into your post. Then you scroll down to post options (this can't be done with fast reply as far as I know) and change it form HTML Off to HTML On - Auto Linebreak mode. That's about it I think.
