    Only because it’s on one of the Xmas compilations they play in the place where I’ve spent the last few Xmases. To be honest, I wasn’t even really aware of the sing before then that I can recall.

    Here's a nice cheery Christmas song:

  13. #13
    Tracey Thorn's "joy" and "tinsel and lights " are perennial favourites of mine.
