Festive Faves

I asked some pals that I interviewed what their favourite Christmas song is and why;

Kid Bookie: 

Anything I wake up and play that day, preferably Slipknot – Vermillion, because I like waking up and blaring heavy metal so it gets me in the angriest state ever, just so there’s extra ‘umpth’ when I tear open those sacks (not ball bags.)


Jake Houlsby:

Probably ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’ by Greg Lake cause the guitar part is really beautiful and I love that the main melody from the Troika from Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé is incorporated into the song.


Potentially ‘Santa Baby’ cause we did a fuzzy rendition of it for a radio show last year, but Bryn also enjoys Reuben’s ‘Christmas is Awesome’


Living Body:

Sure, might be hard for me to choose one though, I’m sort of an Xmas music expert, if you check out “juffage’s festive party” on mixcloud I have a few Xmas mixtapes!!

I guess off the top of my head, for a total classic, it’s hard to beat “white christmas” by Otis Redding.


James Acaster:

It’s Sleigh Ride by the Ronettes. Instantly makes me feel happy, amazing production and their vocals are perfect.

Blush: my (ben) favourite song is last christmas by wham because it bangs.

Franko Fraize:

Easy one for me. Wham’s Last Christmas. Got a lot of time for a bit of Wham. Judge me all u like. George Micheal is a proper cool fella and the video is out and out class. Proper festive with a lovely slice of 80sness.


Wham- Last Christmas is my favourite Christmas song.

 It’s so perfectly melancholic and festive at the same time. It captures the feeling really well, that’s a hard task.


Girls Against:

Fairytale Of New York would have to be our fave.

The Seamonsters:

Is this Christmas? By the Wombats because they’re one of our favourite bands and it’s a greeeeat song! Also fairytale of New York by the Pogues because it’s a classic.


Peaer :

It’s “I heard the bells on christmas day” but sung by David Bazan from this compilation called “Maybe This christmas tree” other than that, general faves are Sleigh Ride, Silent Night, I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.
