It’s time to dust off the baubles, get out that awful festive jumper and dig up your annual Christmas album; things are about to get festive. Which is why Sternberg Clarke, London’s leading entertainment suppliers, has asked a variety of its party goers to name their favourite Christmas tune… well, Merry Christmas Everybody, because Slade has come out on top.
More than 600 guests were surveyed at recent Sternberg Clarke events, with just over 15% naming the 1973 hit their ultimate Christmas sing along, and who can argue!
Other classic nostalgic hits making Sternberg Clarke’s Top 10 was Wizzard’s anthem, I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and Mariah Carey’s unmistakable All I Want for Christmas is You. The full running order of our festive chart toppers features:
1. Merry Christmas Everybody – Slade

2. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day – Wizzard

3. All I want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey

4. Merry Christmas Everyone – Shakin’ Stevens

5. It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas – Michael Bublé

6. Do They Know It’s Christmas? – Band Aid

7. Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Jackson 5

8. Fairytale of New York – The Pogues

9. Last Christmas – Wham!

10. Driving Home for Christmas – Chris Rea
Adam Sternberg, director of Sternberg Clarke added his pick, “Everyone has their favourite Christmas song, the one they recognise from the first chord and always makes you feel-good when you hear it. We’re a fun-loving nation when it comes to Christmas, we love an upbeat tune and a good sing-a-long so there’s no better occasion for bringing people, colleagues and friends together than Christmas! I love Slade, but I would have to say Once in Royal David’s City, sung by the choir of King’s College Cambridge is the ultimate festive tune.”
