40 • Sia - Snowman | 31 points

Honestly I'd never even heard of this song before. And now that I'm watching the video, I'm seeing that, that's because it was just released laugh.gif Honestly, it's really depressing. Eep. I mean I like the video if that's any consolation.

39 • Steeleye Span - Gaudete | 31 points

I've honestly never heard of this one either oh dear. We're not off to a good start here are we. At least it's a bit nicer to listen to than 'Snowman'. Not gonna complain about that. This is a very unique song isn't it. Well, I just checked where it charted and it landed at #14 in 1972 🤷🏻‍♂️. That doesn't help me kink.gif

38 • Frankie Goes To Hollywood - The Power Of Love | 34 points

So honestly, I've heard this song multiple times from multiple different artists, but I've never heard this version in full before. It feels like it's been structured non-conventionally though. It really is a beautiful song though. I can see why so many people still love this song so many years later although my favourite version is the Aurora version of course!

37 • Sufjan Stevens - Christmas Unicorn | 35 points

I've never heard of this song either and honestly what even is this song! Did you know that the national animal of Scotland is a Unicorn? cheer.gif #FACTS. I feel a bit scroogy with this commentary but if you guys had submitted some lovely nice traditional Christmas songs, I'd be giving much better commentary here! 😘

36 • Queen - Thank God It's Christmas | 37 points

I could not find the official video for this wacko.gif Now this is more like it! This hits me right in the feels omg. I always forget about this song until I hear it at Christmas. I guess in a way, that always makes it sound fresh every year. This really is one of their classics!
This was one of my dad's favourite Queen songs whilst I was a child staying with him, so there's even more feels right there!

The Power Of Love wub.gif Essentially the 80s Stay Another Day though.

Erasures version of Gaudete >>> Steeleye Span’s. Also anyone else pronounce it Gord-et as a kid laugh.gif

TGIC is weird, it’s OK but bombed in the U.K. originally, and even now it’s more popular in Europe, charts in Germany every year.

35 • Faith Hill - Where Are You Christmas? | 38 points

Honestly I love this. I didn't realise it was an original song written for The Grinch though. It was undoubtedly the highlight song of the whole movie! I do prefer the verion in the movie sung by Cindy Lou Who though to be honest. It's very sweet. Aside from that, this is a fantastic (and modern at the time) take on the Christmas genre. Love. I'd take more like this now please.

34 • Taylor Swift - Christmas Tree Farm | 39 points

Honestly, I hadn't listened to this because in general I have been disappointed in any new Christmas offerings but listening to it now for this commentary, I'm glad. It's ruined Taylor Swift for me kink.gif jokes aside, it's quite bland imo. Sort of similar to Leona's One More Sleep. Not for me. All you peasants can keep listening to it. xo

I had never heard of the Queen song until this year! Came on the radio and it was undoubtedly Queen but I never knew they did an Xmas song! It's alright! Favourite so far is Frankie Goes To Hollywood wub.gif Also shoutout to Gaudete, it's going to be lost to time in the next 10 years or so I'm sure.

33 • Darlene Love - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) | 41 points

OMG what a bop. A classic. Fantastic. I've never heard the full song before laugh.gif but I feel like everyone knows this song in one way or another. I always see it used on Advertisements around the Christmas period. CHRISTMAS!!!! CHRISTMAS!!!! CHRISTMAS!!! That is all I have to say really. Soz.

YAAAAASSSSS Darlene biggrin.gif Wonder if All Alone On Christmas is still to come? Prefer this though.

Christmas Tree Farm heart.gif Only just discovered it but it’s up there in my Swifty favourites already, if not my Christmas ones yet.

32 • Sia - Santa's Coming For Us | 43 points

This is live commentary as the video is playing for me. OMG ITS HER. It's what's her face from all those things I've watched her in, on TV! Unfortunately so far, the video is far more interesting than the song. Holy crap that's a great cast for a music video. In fact that's a fantastic cast for such a mediocre song. Probably hoped that it would boost the appeal of the song. I'm guessing not 👀👀 I hope they all got paid a lot to feature in the video for this song. Holy crap, I want to burst my own ear drums. No thanks.
