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.

12/16. I actually can't take Christmas music. Too many years in retail having it on a repeating loop 80 hours a week.
Where I work they are now playing Xmas music. We think they play, max, ten songs.

15 out of 16. #12 tripped me up.

12/16. Some of these I never even heard of. I never liked modern day artists, be they country, pop or rap, doing classic Christmas songs. Just my choice.

1984 "Last Christmas" was nursing my first Heartbreak; will never forget that.
