    Ok, so I LOVE making playlists. Love love love.

    So i was wondering if folks would like to nominate a few songs for a Boards Christmas Playlist on spotify? I know everyone loves Christmas FM but I don't really like radio stations, i prefer just having constant music... :o

    If people pop a few suggestions in here I'll start it off and share the link :)

    **EDIT - Here's the link, keep the suggestions coming!

    Boards.ie Christmas Forum Playlist!**

    Great idea!

    My pick Shakin' Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone and Once Upon A Christmas song - Geraldine McQueen.

    I know, I am very displeased.

    Great idea. My choices are "When a child is born" by Johnny Mathis and "Stop the Cavalry" by Jona Lewie.

    Thanks B & C.

    Don't put Last Christmas on it - in case any one is playing that game where you try to avoid the song for as long into December as possible!
    Or do and deliberately sabotage it for someone!

    My suggestion - A Winter's Tale, Greg Lake.

    Did you mean David Essex? Or did Greg lake do a version I can't find?

    Inevitable. Driving home for Christmas. All I want for chiristmas is you. Oh holy night.

    Robbie Williams has a Christmas album out. He has a duet with Jamie Cullum that’s very good.

    Greg Lake did I believe in Father Christmas, as far as I know.

    David Essex did A winter's tale.

    That version doesn't seem to be on Spotify, so I went with the Steeleye Span version instead.

    Strange the bands whole catalogue seems to have disappeared

    Steeleye spans version is good too

    'Its the most wonderful time of the year' by Andy Williams

    Going to assume you meant Grandma.

    Or maybe the reindeer were just fed up with the slave labour. ;)
