They have just played the Christmas number one on the radio, Galaxy i believe it was. I am really glad that Matt Cardle got to Christmas number one this year. The campaigns to get different songs to beat the X Factor contestants to number one purely to irritate Cowell irritates me. Yes, i understand the principle. The number one being seemingly predisposed is annoying and it makes the 'race' less exciting. But do we really want Christmas number ones to be atrocious songs such as 'Surfin' Bird' or whatever that RATM one was last year? I, admitedly, can be a bit of a swearer (don't tell my Mum) and i don't mind a bit of it in the songs i listen to ... but there's something just wrong about swearing and shouting being in the song which is top of the charts on the magical morning of Christmas. Bring back the Spice Girls and Mr Blobby all is forgiven.
Plus Matt Cardle is that little bit attractive. The song is a pretty good song also. With every song however, that the X Factor winner releases there is an uproar of 'they've masacred an amazing song!'... how? By singing it? I admit when one released 'Hallelujah' a couple of years back i moaned a little bit, but then i realised, it's just a different person singing it. The song is the same, the winner clearly has a good voice so how is it being ruined? It's just that the singer you like isn't singing it .... just don't buy it ... and stop moaning :)
The best Christmas songs? Clearly 'Fairytale of New York by the Pogues' and 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' by Mariah Carey.
