    Close enough to Christmas now, :p so what are your favourite festive songs?

    Mine are

    1 Driving home for Christmas - Chris Rea. So evocative.

    2 I believe in Father Christmas - Greg Lake. Just magical.

    3 Classical version of Troika. Amazing.

    What's yours?

    Hmmm!

    I think for me it would have to be these three:

    1. Oh Holy Night - Josh Groban's version
    2. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
    3. When A Child is Born - Johnny Mathis (I'm with silly sausage on this one! :eek:)

    1) Fairytale of New York - Pogues. I LOVE this.

    2) Proper Crimbo - Avid Merrion. It makes me smile every time I hear it.

    3) Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid. The original one, not the remakes with the raps on.

    Oooooh. If you want to feel REALLY snuggly, and magical, and Christmassy, there's only one guy that can do it.

    So: 3 songs -

    Mistletoe and Wine
    Millennium Prayer
    Saviour's Day

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
