Holding up the philosophy that Christmas music should not only be festive, but diverse, Impact has compiled a list of 25 ‘Christmas songs’ to take you through advent. Including not only songs which are indisputably part of the Christmas canon, but also straying into areas of music which holds looser links to the season. Starting with the tenuous and heading for the recognised classics, look no further for your advent soundtrack.
‘Step Into Christmas’: a festive classic made infinitely better by The Wedding Present’s post-punk take on it. (No, that’s not up for debate.) If you’re not feeling in the mood of the season by now, David Gedge’s voice comes at you like a hyperactive child on Christmas morning, demanding you get festive. Pronto.
So liven up with The Wedding Present this Christmas, or at the very least, listen to Elton John’s version.
