Every year, I have a Christmas party and always spend a bit of time creating a new MP3 CD with a few more obscure Christmas songs that may be new to people, rather than ones they've had to endure countless times, every year between the months of October and December.

So...suggestions for good Christmas songs that you don't normally find on compilations and aren't often played in shops?

'Cashing in on Christmas'. Bad news (ie Ade edmonson, Nigel planer, Peter Richardson and Rik Mayall, aka Vim, Den, Spider and ..Colin )

This song should have been the challenger to this years X factor imo. Very appropriate lyrics.

FELIZ NAVI- NADA by El Vez. It was in a brilliant compilation called It's a cool Christmas from a few years.ago . It samples or pinches the riff from public image by Public Image .

She & Him's Christmas album
Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga
(My Only Wish) This Year - Britney Spears

I'm pretty sure Girls Aloud recorded a few Christmas songs as well. I must look on YT for them.
