Which type of Christmas songs are the best?

by : 

There are so many different aspects to the Christmas period: jumpers, shopping, Christmas markets, decorations, songs. Without them, Christmas just wouldn't feel right. My personal favourite part of the festive period are the songs. There are carols, such as Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Ding Dong Merrily on High and Good King Wenceslas, which you would normally hear in church. Then there are the pop songs from throughout the years. It can sometimes seem like everyone has released a Christmas song – some have been recorded and re-recorded too many times to count. In fact, almost every year there's a debate about which versions of certain Christmas songs are better. Eartha Kitt or Kylie Minogue's version of Santa Baby? What about Michael Bublé vs Frank Sinatra and their versions of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas? The list goes on and on. 

The most famous Christmas songs are undoubtedly the ones with a catchy melody, talking about being home for Christmas or how much they love Christmas. Have a listen to Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea or I Wish It Could be Christmas Every Day by Wizzard. Some songs highlight how much we want to be with the people we love at this time of year, such as Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley, Lonely This Christmas by Mud or Leona Lewis' One More Sleep. The mainstream songs are the ones you'll hear in shops as you do your Christmas shopping or in restaurants all over Britain.

The Christmas songs that I love to listen to are the ones that don't really make much sense. Sometimes they take you back to childhood when you wouldn't be laughed at for asking Santa for a giraffe, and sometimes they describe weird yet wonderful situations. And the rest are just silly for the sake of it. My favourite wacky Christmas songs are I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Kacey Musgraves, Never Do a Tango With an Eskimo by Alma Cogan and Proper Crimbo by Bo Selecta.

The absolute best Christmas song is definitely Fairytale of New York by The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl. It's not really Christmas until you've listened to that.
