It’s not too surprising that a playlist titled ‘Britain's Most Played Festive Songs’ is largely made up of British artists. But there is no stopping American singer Mariah Carey from wielding her festive magic wand on ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. Bing Crosby, Darlene Love and Dean Martin are equally impossible to shift from any list of popular Christmas songs no matter what country the radio play statistics are drawn from.

In truth this collection hardly boasts any surprises at all, amounting to the songs that most people plump for each December when they’re in need of a little festive spirit. So you’ve got the glitter of Wizard’s ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’, the joie-de-vivre of Shakin’ Stevens ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ and the slow dance drama of Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’. And if you just want everyone to sing without fear of embarrassment there is are plenty of Christmas anthems from the likes of Slade, the Pogues and John Lennon. Just remember to keep a steady supply of mulled wine bubbling on the stove.
