Silent Night.

Apparently it's a German song and sung by them in the trenches in the first world war.

We liked in so much we started to sing it too!

There's a campaign to get Saturn 5 by the Inspiral Carpets to Xmas no1 in light of the tragic death of their drummer Craig Gill. That'll do for me bit otherwise it has to be the Pogues & Kirsty McColl.

Tinned Toms - You know it makes sense!
Jona Lewie - Stop the cavalry. Always reminds me of a match at Burnden at Christmas time. They played it at half time and the whole of the Burnden terrace was bouncing up and down to it.

Sorry, I thought we were talking Christmas carols - hence my Silent Night offering.

If we are talking pop songs I'd like to add Wizards - I Wish it could be Christmas Every Day and Chris de Burgh's - A Spaceman Came Travelling and of course the great Happy Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon.

Mine is a little known one called simply 'The Kings' by Peter Cornelius. It's a beautiful tune always sung by cathedral choirs.

Written by an Austrian called Franz Gruber in 1818 to words by Joseph Mohr when the organ in his church in Hallein (near Salzburg) packed in.
Various stories exist about whether the organ story is true or not- it may have been  deliberately composed for guitar and accompanying choir.
The German version (Stille Nacht) was sung by the Germans during the First Great War and adopted by Empire troops. The English words are by an American (John Young).
Just to show off how clever I am about all of this ,the only hymn in the official CoE hymnal written and composed by an American is 'O Little Town of Bethlehem'. Or so I've been led to believe.

Last Christmas-Wham is my favorite for personal reasons but I'd like it anyway. I don't like the Lennon one purely because the wailing bitch is on it.
