Here at Viva Live Music Towers, we love Christmas songs and carols, and in particular, love a good cheesy song (and video). Here are some of our favourite Christmas songs AND VIDEOS. And don’t forget to let us know what your favourites are too!
You can never go wrong with Bette Midler and the combination of Palm Trees, excellent riffs and Christmas is always a winner.
Boney M are legends and this song combines the calypso beat with wonderful harmonies. And we really envy the acrylic ‘Fur’ cloaks.
Shakin’ Stevens. You MUST see the video at the beginning – it really is ‘Of its time’…. And Stevens’ version of this great song is SO much better than the recent cover used by the BBC.
Wham “Last Christmas”. A well loved ‘sing along’ song; and a classic video with the haircuts, shuttlecocks and pouting.
This never fails to start some mum dancing and singing along when it is played. Good old Mariah! “All I want for Christmas is you!” And now for ever iconic since it was performed in the Car pool!
Merry Christmas Everybody. Not only are there the amazing outfits and Top of the Tops at its best, but it is a great pension fund for Noddy!
White Christmas with Bing Crosby. And not a sniff of irony when he performed it!
Silent Night at Kings College Cambridge. We could have gone down the cheesy ( or truly appalling) route, but this version is stunning!
Wizzard “I wish it could be Christmas every day”. People really dressed like that????
Santa Baby with the legend: Eartha Kitt.
