Before the start I must to say :
1. I will not separate three versions of "Do They Know It's Christmas"
2. It's impossible for to me to rate instrumental tracks, so I exclude "Let's Have Another Party" (UK # 1 in 1954) from this ranking.
3. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was # 1 in 1975 and in 1991 together with "These Are The Days Of Our Lives", I will give the different positions for both songs.
4. I will not separate double singles from Beatles, Wings and Westlife.

Also I will add my favourites from UK Top 10 on every Christmas week. smile.gif

0 / 10
61. Alexandra Burke - Hallelujah (2008)
62. Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You (1992)
63. Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name (2009)

Predictable last place, it was the worst page in all long history of UK charts.

Overplayed and overrated worldwide hit, even worse than "My Heart Will Go On".

My least favourite X Factor winner with her cover version of Leonard Cohen's classic.

I like to know the opinion about my alternative choices.
Do you prefer anything from them over the real number ones ?
