I do enjoy having the Christmas tunes on whilst wrapping gifts. I mean, is Wham!’s Last Christmas not the best Christmas song ever? And I know I’m not the only one who’s listened to Driving Home for Christmas on the way home when they’ve finally finished their last shift before Christmas day… shout out to those of you also working over the holidays, especially NHS and retail staff – may the odds be ever in your favour!
I’m also thinking some of you may be planning a Christmas party or will be entertaining family and friends at some point over the next few weeks, so I’ve saved you the hard work of creating a playlist of your own as you’ll no doubt have a million and one other things to do. You’re welcome.
You can follow the playlist here. I’ll also update it if I come across a song that needs to be on there; in fact I’m pretty sure it’s missing a few Christmas party songs!
