10th December 2017

It's Sufjan Stevens at 1, getting his first chart-topper at long last over a decade since debuting (and me buying his Illinois album). I was listening to this gorgeous low-key classy ballad as I drove in London traffic heading home with snow gently falling. How very Christmassy! Almost Driving Home For Christmas (Hi Chris Rea yet again in my top 40), except for I'm flying to the Canaries tomorrow morning. An actual new Christmas song pops in for Gwen Stefani, helped by Blake Shelton, and a good jolly effort it is, giving Gwen 20 years of chart entries, no doubt about it!

Another Xmas classic returns 44 years on - Wizzard's annual festive hit doesn't usually chart due to over-familiarity. I was insanely mad on it in 1973, had the picture sleeve vinyl and Roy Wood was coming off 4 consecutive number ones in my chart, plus some pre-fating Wizzard, as was my teen hero aged 15/16. I got to see him in Basingstoke on Tuesday, probably 20 years on since I last saw. He can still put on a good show, even if he needs a hand with the song order these days. I've used that as an excuse to allow a quirky track that played as I walked into The Anvil venue, one off Boulders his first album that I played rather a lot.

Highest new entry, though, is another RPO classic combo, this time Aretha Franklin gets the treatment with her brilliant Stevie Wonder cover from 1974 - it very much underperformed in my charts in the January/February as Wizzard dropped down my charts from the top. Roy Wood knocked himself off the top, with solo hit song Forever, that never gets played these days - not even by Roy in concert.

Big climbs for Tame Impala, back in the top 10, and ditto Fall Out Boy. Finally, a debut for Ian Dury's boy, so, Reasons To Be Cheerful there.
