What I am listening to this Week #8 (Christmas Special)

Its finally round to my favourite time of year, Christamas!! (closely followed by my 18th birthday, double the excitement!!). I love everything about Christmas, buying people gifts and seeing their smiles, the frost and snuggly jumpers, the food and that excitement which you can feel in the air, you name it, I love all of it. I especially love the songs!! I just went out last week and bought 'Now that's what I call Christmas' and have been playing it in my car repeatedly (sorry to all those passengers out there who have had to endure my singing). So this weeks playlist is filled with Christmassy songs. YAY!!!

1. Fairytale of New York- The Pogues ft Kirsty MacColl This is my favourite chirstmas song, as its the one I remeber most from my childhood, as it is one of my Dad's favourite songs too. I also used to find the rude words hilarious when I was about 10, I like to think I am a bit more mature now.....
2. Do they know its Christmas?- Band Aid Probably one of the most well known Christmas songs of all time. At the time of making this track no one had done anything like it before, and Bob Gedolf has said on many occasions that when he asked his fellow musicians to join him, he had no expectations, but so many turned up, making it one of the world's most famous charity tracks of all time.
3. All I want for Christmas is You- Mariah Carey Now, I dont know about anyone else, but this song always makes me want to sing out loud. Anyone else fail to reach Mariah Carey's high note....?
4. Santa Baby- Kylie Minogue This is a bit of a sultry Christmas song, and one always played in shops. Kylie here looking pretty fine if I do say so myself.
5. Little Drummer Boy- Pentatonix This is a slightly alternative version of this song, but I love this band, and I really like their covers. So why not give it a try?
6. Let it Snow- Michael Buble This guy has serious charm. And it wouldn't be a Christmas playlist without something from his album. I chose this paticular song because I really really want it to snow!!
7. The Power of Love- Gabrielle Aplin I hadn't really associated this song with Christmas until it appeared on the now album, but now it seems like its always been a Christmas song. And as much as I love 'Frankie goes to Hollywood' this is my favourite version of the song, I just love Miss Aplin's voice.

8. Silent Night- Kings College Choir, Cambridge Now I am not a paticularly religious person, but every December I find myself going into church just to listen to the carol services, as they are just so beautiful. This song is so peaceful and moving, just beautiful really.

9. White Christmas- Bing Crosby My favourite Christmas movie, hands down. We used to watch it in our little flat in Scotland, in the middle of nowhere (often with the wind howling around us) every Christmas Eve, complete with a box of Roses. If you haven't watched this movie, I highly recommend it, mind though, its a tear jerker.
10. Slade- Merry Christmas Everybody 'IT'S CHRISTMAS' (nough said).

Hope you all enjoyed my favourite festive songs, I could of gone on and on with this playlist, but I limited myself to just 10 (challenge, I know). I would love to know what your favourite holiday songs are, and possibly add them to my list of favourties.....(cause you can never have too many Christmas songs) H x
