Last Christmas I gave You My Heart …

Royalty collecting society PRS have published a list of the most played Christmas songs from the last five years. And it's topped by Wham! no less. Isn't it funny that radio stations are still playing the original 1984 version of 'Do They Know It's Christmas' when they also have that excellent (?) 2004 version with Dizzee rapping and Joss warbling to choose from? Not to mention the Stock Aiken & Waterman version. Anyway, here's the top ten…

1. Wham! – Last Christmas
2. Band Aid – Do They Know It's Christmas? (Original Version)
3. The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York
4. Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
5. Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
6. Jona Lewie – Stop The Cavalry
7. Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
8. Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
9. Mud – Lonely This Christmas
10. Bing Crosby – White Christmas
