I love The Darkness' Christmas song too - it's so cheesy and nostalgic but still really catchy :-)

For me, it's got to be songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas though. Even though half of them aren't remotely festive, that's always what gets me in the holiday mood. I watch it every Christmas Eve and it still scares me!

Thanks Old Greying, this is now top of my Christmas playlist too!!

Even better I've just found the whole album this comes from on Spotify: Bob Rivers & Twisted Radio, 'Twisted Christmas Boxed Set'. Now downloaded onto the iPod for in-car entertainment over the festive season. O Little Town of Bethlehem to the tune of House of the Rising Sun a la The Animals - sublime!

Nobody's mentioned Slade

Nobody's mentioned Salde's "Merry Christmas Everyone ". Perhaps understandably so.

But this year I heard it performed by the Wirral Ukelele Orchestra and it took on a new dimension.

(I'm not saying better. I'm not saying worse, just a new dimension!)
