All Christmas Top 10 hits in England in the 70's and 80's - not so well known anywhere else I don't think.
I know 'Stop The Cavalry' well, my Dad has the record... but then I just looked it up and it came out Christmas 1980 - we were in England for 3 months in 1981 so Dad would have heard it then.
I also just found out that Jona Lewie was Tery Dactyl and the Dinosaurs
I love 'Seaside Shuffle'!
Ok, my favourite Christmas song is "All I Want For Christmas Is You"... I got the CD single for Christmas one year and now every year I have to play it on Christmas morning and it makes me happy!
I also love Hall and Oates version of "Jingle Bell Rock", Wham's "Last Christmas" and the original 80's "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
