There is a list of tunes that I seem to play every year in the run up to Christmas. Some of them are well know, chart topping, hits and some of them are utterly cringeworthy attempts to cash in on the season but somehow still manage to bring a smile to my face. So along with my usual smattering of posts, over the next 25 days I’ll be bringing you the Bardsworld Christmas Chart.
To get us started we have a classic of the period. This video is from the Top Of The Pops Christmas Special for 1983, and is presented by David “Kid” Jensen and the brilliant, and sadly missed, John Peel. So sit back and enjoy them introducing the rocktastic Christmas hit “Merry Xmas Everybody” by Slade!
