The Festive Long Tail

It’s good to see that even during the Yuletide season, the Long Tail is in full effect. Just take a look at the Christmas ‘classics’ that have reappeared in the UK hit parade (it’s still called that, right?) in the run up to the big day.

#8 Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
#12 Pogues & Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York
#23 Wham! – Last Christmas
#25 Andy Williams – It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
#27 Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day
#33 Shakin’ Stevens – Merry Christmas Everyone
#37 Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
#38 Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas?

All we need now is a bit of Bowie and Bing, Stay Another Day and Stop the Cavalry and that’s my Christmas playlist sorted.

    OMG. This passed me by. Thought we’d seen the last old Shakey.

    I don’t know which is worse: re-vomited seasonal trash, or the nausea-inducing nonentities from X-Factor. That’s all the Xmas charts are.
