9/16 I knew every one of the tunes, but have no idea when most of them came out

After further consideration, I have to say my favorite Christmas song is The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York." The Kinks "Father Christmas" drops to second.

I've heard Father Christmas on the radio a few times, but never knew who was singing. Now I know. Thanks!

I have never heard of most these songs. Far from classic Christmas songs!

You got 11 out of 16
I was shocked that some of these were much older than I guessed! Wow.
