So do you class the 1996 Christmas Number 1 as a Christmas song even though it's really about sex?

No it isn't a Christmas song I don't think.

The Power Of Love could be interpreted as having a religious theme though.

It does remind a me a little of Christmas too when I listen to it because of that fact.

Forgot to mention that the winter coats and an ice rink in the video could be attributed to it being a Christmas song.

So then Robbie Williams' She's The One is therefore a Christmas song due to prominently featuring an ice rink tongue.gif

I consider them xmas songs because I only ever hear them in December in the radio even if they don't sing about xmas! Perfect will be the same from this year now I would say!

I wouldn't consider it a Christmas song in the strictest of senses, but for reasons already mentioned (Christmas #1, winter themed video & played more at this time of year) it makes me think of Christmas! I include 2 Become 1 (and their other 2 Christmas #1s) in my Christmas play list.

Yeh so do I!

It's like older carols such as In the Bleak Mid Winter - you could say aren't Christmas songs but they are always focused and heard in December!

I wouldn't class it as a 'Christmas song' per sť but I do associate it with Christmas at the same time if that makes sense laugh.gif The song was a Christmas #1 for the Spice Girls, but they had three of those, so I guess the wintery video is a reason also. Although... 'Goodbye' has one too, so maybe this song housing more warm and romantic lyrics also plays a part, as opposed to a farewell song. I see it a fair bit on the music channels each December and hear it a bit on the radio as well, so I will forever have a bit of a festive connection to '2 Become 1'. But the song itself isn't thematically about Christmas (instead safe sex) so I wouldn't file it as a Christmas song. No mention of the day itself, santa, jingle bells, Christmas trees... nothing. Much like 'Too Lost In You' by Sugababes which is another girlgroup song that isn't specifically about the festive season, but that music channels play at this time of year.

A quick mention of Christmas doesn't qualify for me btw, otherwise you could say Little Mix - 'Move' was a Christmas song ("feeling like it's my birthday, like Christmas day came early" laugh.gif) - just a song that is thematically festive throughout.

This!!

A beautiful song and very evocative of Christmas, but just like East17, or Die Hard, 'twas NOT a song just before Christmas.

Howeverrrr, like Lily Allen, Gabrielle Aplin, etc, I usually only play it around Xmas time...

Maybe a pseudo-Christmas song then...
