    So as suggested in the Christmas FM thread, we will vote for our favourite Christmas songs. I had orginally intended this as a poll thread but how can you olny select 10 songs and an option for an 11th, there's too many favourites.

    I propose we post/nominate a song for the top 10. If you want that song to feature in the top 10 you thank the post. The songs with the most thanks will make up our top 10.

    Share the thread and make it as popular as possible, we want as many people voting as we can and we want as many boardies tuning into ChristmasFM and supporting Age Action as possible.

    The Rules.

    1) You can thank and nominate as many songs as you like.
    2) No duplicate nominations, if someone nominates Jingle Bells once and you post for it again all thanks on that post will not be counted.
    3) No mutiple versions of the one song, we don't want a top 10 with three or four versions of Winter Wonderland.
    4) Voting Ends November 30th 8pm and results will be posted at 9pm.

    Again as always my fellow elves, thoughts, opinions and feedback is always welcomed, if ye are not happy with the voting format or rules let me know.

    So can we only nominate one song or one song per post?

    Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens

    One of my all time favourites and an absolute Whopper of a video!

    Driving Home For Christmas. There's nothing like the feeling you get when you're actually driving home for Christmas and it comes on the radio.

    (I don't think my votes are going to count. I love most Christmas songs. :D)

    Drummer boy- Bing & Bowie


    Question Loughc : Can we nominate a same song by a different artist because some versions can be different


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,351 ✭✭✭ Littlehorny


    Band Aid - Do They Know its Christmas Time At All The original version and my personal favourite, when those bells chime at the start of the song the hair on the back of my neck stands up.

    You can but only one version of each song can make the top 10. It's stops having 3 or 4 versions of one song taking up the 10 spaces.
