Here are my Top 10 (well, eleven) Christmas pop songs of all time.Have a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year, everyone.1) Winter Symphony (Brian Wilson, available on Christmas Album -extended edition- by The Beach Boys).
We love you, Brian!!!!!
“Somewhere children outside, Screamin’ down a daredevil slide, Rosy-cheeked bundles of cold-weather clothes”
2) Do They Know It’s Christmas (Band Aid, single)
“And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas timeThe greatest gift they’ll get this year is life.”
3) Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight) (The Ramones, single)
“I loved you from the start’. Cause Christmas ain’t the time for breaking each other’s hearts”
“So this is Xmas, And what have you done, Another year over And a new one just begun”
“Playing guitars on an empty stage, counting the bars of an iron cage, Tell me darling, what can it mean ?. Once upon a long ago, children searched for treasure”
“In the meadow we can build a snowman,Then pretend that he is Parson Brown, He’ll say, “Are you married?” we’ll say “No man, But you can do the job when you’re in town!”
“I like female form in minimum dress, Money to spend with a capital “S”, Get a date with the woman in red”
“He skydives down to the chimney with ease, Parachutes a package to the whole family, It’s Santa’s Air Special delivery to under your tree”
8) Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (Bruce Springsteen, live single 1975)
“He sees you when you’re sleeping, He knows when you’re awake, He knows if you’ve been bad or good, So be good for goodness sake!”
“Father christmas, give us some money, Don’t mess around with those silly toys. Well beat you up if you don’t hand it over, We want your bread so don’t make us annoyed. Give all the toys to the little rich boys”
“And Tommy doesn’t know what day it is. He doesn’t know who Jesus was or what praying is.
How can he be saved? From the eternal grave”
