Christmas 2014 Lookback
The Closest Thing To A New Christmas Song

2014 was a lean year for new Christmas songs, with only another wheeling out of the Band Aid concept making it to the top forty. Fortunately this is the age of the music download, so the usual classics still charted highly.

Sadly, the Christmas #1 spot was taken up by yet another completely forgettable X Factor song.

The real soundtrack to the Christmas run-up was the incredibly successful “Uptown Funk” from Mark Ronson. It was so popular that its release date was moved forwards, and was #1 for a few weeks either side of the single week when X Factor took the top spot.
