Too right there's some dodgy ones Dave.
But you've actually named two of my favourites.
I remember, back in the 70's, looking out the window on a snowy night, listening on headphones to (a hissy) Capital Radio playing Greg Lake.
I've never before or since felt so Christmassy.

Also like Wings and Elton John.....you all know 'em.

Think you are a month too early :)
Saw the first garden Christmas scene near me a couple of weeks ago.
Light up reindeer, inflatable snowman and Santa (FFS).
3 neighbours around me have their lights up.
Far too early - but they think they've got an excuse this year.

Our decorations are going up early because of lockdown, though I've booked tables at the local for when it's lifted! Have some lasers for outside, but they'll wait until December.

Most Christmas music is appalling, but Fairytale of New York is probably my favourite.

And one of my most hated LOL though its a shame its being edited this year, and artist sing about there never regions in colourful ways. PC gone mad again

My favourite Christmas songs actually come from music scores like Home alone or polar express

Though a main stream one that sounds good would be Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is you", is actually really well produced

Even though I love the song, I have to agree with the change. If it contained the 'N' word, no-one would bat an eyelid at its removal. But we stray into GRAPES territory, so back on topic.

I like the Mariah Carey one, but it feels like I shouldn't!

Radio 1 must play the edited version, Radio 2 can play the original, 6 Music can take their pick.
Oh how I love this new, inconsistent, 'woke' world we live in.
(My Mum told me her cat had 'N' word name -call it in for dinner these days and you'd be put away).

......Mariah Carey song....sorry but that's one of the ones I could happily do without.

I think part of Christmas music is that you have to be prepared to embrace the tacky. I have some tolerance, but it's pretty limited...
I really don't like tacky and, that includes all cheap plastic rubbish, covered in lights, our next door neighbour has put out for Christmas. He's well into it all...
