Robert Searle… Greg Lake for me

Tony Davis… I always like The Pogues – Fairytale of New York and Greg Lake – I Believe in Father Christmas

Paul Morfey… O.k. its got to be ‘Another Christmas song’ Jethro Tull, not to be confused with’ Christmas song’ Jethro Tull. ( thats good too)

Barry Newton… Its Over by Roy Orbison, LOL

Liane Carroll… 6 ferrerro roche in one minute. Just before Queenie’s speech!!!!!!!

Roy Trunchion… Hells bells.

Clifford Rose… Christmas Day by Squeeze (1979)

Andy Qunta… I Believe In Father Christmas – Greg Lake. (RIP)

Joe Knight… 1969 Slade 😊 so here it is Merry Christmas 🎶🎶🎶

Roy Trunchion… None, I hate them all. Same shit every year.

Colin Fox… Christmas Song Bah Humbug – Steve Foster.

Mick O’Dowd… Grandmas Got Run Over By A Reindeer by Elmo & Patsy on Stiff Records

Pete Fisher… Thrashing through The Snow – Megadeth

Dave Nattress… The one I never tire of hearing is Slade’s “Merry Christmas Everybody”, wonderful arrangement and guitar chords, but Tom Chaplin’s “Midnight Mass” is absolutely wonderful and then second to this is “We Remember You This Christmas”.  I really hope both become Christmas standards.  We need some quality new tracks to top up the old ones we’re getting a touch bored with!

Clifford Rose… Christmas Day by Squeeze

Tom Hodkin… Driving home for Christmas .. Chris Rea

Chris Van Rock…
