Greatest ChrisTmas Number 1's ever
One of the most prominent ways to remember a Christmas is recollecting which artist was number one for the day. In recent times we've seen the X Factor take over the top spot and we may often forget about the diversity of the past Christmas's hits. However, we've decided to compile a list of our favourites for you to reminisce and perhaps even listen to over the Christmas period. We've decided not to number them as we know the arguments that come about. However, most of these hits can be gotten on compilation albums available through stores with Pigsback and their mega deals.
Chris Rea's Christmas hit is one of the most commonly heard on the radio stations throughout the world. The tune is sang and listened to by office workers everywhere who get ready to return to their humble abodes for a couple of days, of peace, relaxation, merry making and building Scalextric tracks for the remainder of the day. However, it's a classic and rightly so.
Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid
Sir Bob's hit is one of the Christmas greats and one of the best selling records of all time .The song which was sung by Band Aid and its mix of huge ego's and creative talents is the front face of one of the greatest fund raising initiatives of all time. It is also a quite overplayed song that still brings back memories of bad hair and Angel Delight for dessert.
Fairytale of New York
Sung by the bold Shane McGowan and Kirsty McColl, A Fairytale of New York is a duet about a drunken rapscallion and his long suffering girlfriend - nothing like real life so. However, all joking aside it is a wonderful song, with amazing lyrics, though was beaten to Christmas number one by The Pet Shop Boys, though is a spiritual number one in our list.
White Christmas - Bing Cosby
Old time crooner Bing Cosby is best known for this wonderful hit about the wonders of snow at Christmas, tell that to anyone getting home the last couple of years. However, it is a wonderful song that for many sparks tingles down their spine when they hear its smooth tones.
Walking in the Air - Aled Jones
This song sung by the young and high pitched Aled Jones could certainly not be achieved by the singer these days. It is a touching song of the boy and his magic snowman, whom he has become friends with and is one of the images we all cherish at Christmas. The short film is as beautiful and as Christmas orientated as films come and is a wonderful work of art.
Little Drummer Boy - Bing Cosby and David Bowie
This duet between Bing Cosby (again!) and chameleon of rock, David Bowie is a charming song, where Cosby's and Bowie' s contrasting voices make a very interesting mix. The part where Bowie goes off on his own and sings his own bit is interesting to say the least. It however is a magnificent Christmas song and one that really gets those yuletide juices flowing.
I Wish it Could be Christmas Every Day - Wizzard
This hit by Wizzard is as powerful as it gets for glam rock and is one of those songs that creates a buzz, while also needs a laugh. It's a great 70s rock tune and one that many love to indulge in at Christmas.
Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade
A little bit of 70s rock never went amiss and Slade are as 1970s as it gets. The band's hit Merry Christmas Everybody is one of the most loved hits of all time, from one of the most loved bands of all time. The song is the epitome of Christmas spirit and spreads the Christmas cheer in a joyous fashion.
All I want for Christmas is You - Various Artists
Pure pop, this song is certainly as cheesy and as wonderful as it gets. All I want for Christmas is You was sung most recently by Maria Carey. However, we love the original and certainly can't wait for it to be okay to indulge in it as a guilty pleasure come December, and are deciding on using our Pigsback mega deal to get a record soon
Wham, that's the last one. Well Last Christmas, created by Wham and George Michael and the other guy in Wham is certainly a great hit from the effervescent Christmas hit period of the 1980s and still a wonderful song today.
Using Pigsback and mega deals can really knock the price off a CD or download an put you in the mood for Christmas cheer.
