Christmas Songs that Drive me mad

There isn’t many songs I don’t like with having a bit of an eclectic taste. However there are Christmas songs that I don’t like either because they are beyond overplayed or make Christmas number one and have no reference to Christmas in them at all (X-Factor I’m looking at you). So here is a quick run down of these songs starting with an extremely popular one.

Do they know it’s Christmas – Band Aid 2/Band Aid 30

This should have never been remade. The original cannot be bettered. End of

Also I’m going to add a little bonus one as my Husband’s birthday is on Christmas Day and this one was number one when he was born
