#NeverForget


22 | 3.9 | Absolutely Anything And Anything At All
21 | 5.1 | Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (feat. Frank Sinatra)
20 | 5.6 | Winter Wonderland

At the bottom of the pile rightfully is the abysmal AAAAAA, Kylie's true jump the shark moment. Used for some movie with the same-ish name, it's so sickly sweet and cringy that it's not worth mentioning really.
SCICTT features the late Frank Sinatra, a nice idea but the two voices do not mix and, as with many popular songs, there are loads of better covers, such as Faith Hill's version.
Faith also does a better version of this next song, Winter Wonderland. A nice enough song, just a bit, ehhhh.

Can't really argue with those being at the bottom. A shame that Kylie Christmas have the latter two songs right at the start because they are so plain and makes it actually quite off-putting to listen to the full album. They should have been shoved at the end if they had to be on there and have one of the original tracks kick-starting the album.

I think ITMWTOTY is a great start but they deffo should have put EDLC second. May have resulted in 5 extra sales dance.gif

All of those three are atrocious, and definitely the correct bottom two.

Definitely agree with this bottom 3, "AAAAA" was awful and so dire and "SCICTT" was just strange and didn't anything for me and "WW" wasn't that great either.

19 | 6.30 | Have Yourself A Merry Little Chistmas
18 | 6.34 | Oh Santa
18 | 6.34 | Cried Out Christmas

HYAMLC is a classic tune and I think Kylie did a very good job of this one. It's not an especially easy song to do and so many other artists oversing on it, but Kylie is nicely restrained for the most part and doesn't ham it up for the fans. Maybe a bit too slow for an album that was meant to be camp disco?
Oh Santa is basically Santa Baby but more modern, not very imaginative, but some of the things on her list are pretty comical and she shows her love for Obama, which is nice.
Cried Out Christmas is just a bit crap, not overly bad but the way she sings it is really offputting and ruins it for me.

OhSanta needs a little time to work its magic but HYAMLC is a little to cynical, even for a Christmas album, and COC is the weakest new song on the album, even with K added laugh.gif

HYAMLC should have been bottom. AWFUL.

16 | 6.46 | Let It Snow
15 | 6.69 | I’m Gonna Be Warm This Winter
14 | 6.76 | If I Can't Have You (feat. Sam Sparro)
13 | 6.88 | Christmas Wrapping (feat. Iggy Pop)
12 | 7.30 | It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
11 | 7.53 | Santa Baby

Two oldies here in the forms of Let It Snow and Santa Baby, both released previously and plonked onto the album for some reason. Nice covers but I don't see the point in adding them to the album as they stick out a bit. Two of the songs here were performed on the promo trail, the better of the two is ITMWTOTY which is one of my fave Crimbo songs so nice to see it covered by Mini. The addition of Iggy Pop to Christmas Wrapping was an odd one but it kinda works. The only non Christmassy one here is from her second Garibay EP and a collab with forgotten pop star Sam Sparro, a nice enough song but not anything special.

Actually quite like "Santa Baby" and surprising that it's the only track from her X-Mas album to dent the UK top 100

No major upsets so far, but in general most of the songs put forward in this are forgettable for me and form her worst era of music.

I hope that Everyday’s Like Christmas wins and also “Black Or White” to make top 5. They’re the best things she’s released this year.

10 | 7.54 | Black & White
09 | 7.61 | The Other Boys
08 | 7.79 | Only You feat. James Corden

The "main" song from the Garibay EP released and feauturing Shaggy oddly enough, but this collab actually works really well and I thought it'd do better here than it did. I guess snooty fans don't want her taking risks. The song is different to most other songs by her in the past and it really works. If pushed it could have gone top 40 maybe, perhaps.
The lead(?) single from Aussie duo NERVO is next which Kylie added vocals to along with Jake Shears and additional input from Nile Rogers. A retro dance jam, it also shoulda done better than it did.
Ew James Corden. Anyway, the most un Christmassy song from the album, a cover of the Yazoo classic, it's not actually to bad, not too good either, with a better partner it could be a Kylie duet classic.

Hoped that "Black and White" would be higher, and do agree that it should have been given a bigger push. Not too keen on "TOB" and I do like "OY" now that deserved more chart success.

How could TOB end up so low?? I expect it to be in Top 5 at least.

'The Other Boys' should have been the runaway winner.
