Underplayed Christmas Songs

So everyone's making their sleigh list and most will contain the same 30 - 40 songs, while nearly all are perfectly well crafted pieces of popular music (I'd suggest Merry Christmas (War is Over) is by a very wide margin not one of Lennon's best) hearing them several times a day makes them lose their lustre.

Some like Ann Charleston & Ian Smith's (AKA Madge and Harold Old Fashioned Christmas are not very good while Jim Davidson's cover of White Christmas will be exercised because of MASSIVE RACISM, (if you haven't heard it, yes he does the voice). Here's some alternatives I like.

Erasure.  She Wont Be Home



The Carpenters – Merry Christmas Darling,



Mel & Kim – Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
When it gets shown on TV these days there's a clunky edit, can you guess where?

 Frank Sidebottom - Oh Blimey it's Christmas
