So for some reason the christmas number one is a really big deal. This year Gary Jules' Mad World got it :cool:

I seriously love this song, you know, the one from the Donnie Darko film.

Anyway, what have been your favourite christmas number ones?

Meh, would have been nice to actually have something vaguelly relating to Christmas on the top spot instead of some random song with zero connection to it...

Every christmas all we get is shite songs anyway, its a joke.

<font face="times new roman" color="crazy blue" size=+1>As much as I loved The Darkness, this was a far better song. Hopefully it sparks up more interest in Donnie Darko as well but this was the best song released for the Christmas number one and I'm so glad people just didn't jump on the "It's Christmas lets buy a Christmas song" usual train of thought :D</font>

Really :eek: I was expecting GUN-it to be x-mas number one with Stunt 101 because it is really festive and really christmassy :shifty:

Well anyway, anything is better than The Darkness, except Blazin Squad.

Its a good song i guess,can't really argue with it being no. 1 personally.

If i was a couple years older though i would've put some money on proper crimbo at 50-1 but i guess its a good job i didn't.

exactly why the darkness should of been #1. It's a christmas song, the tears for fears song *no credit to G.J* is a #1 in itself but nto a christmas #1.

No proper crim bo :(

Thinking about it i reckon it is pritty dumb with that being no.1 at Christmas,not because its a bad song but it just can be depressing.I dunno i guess i'd rather see a proper crimbo song(:() at number 1,like Darkness' or Proper Crimbo. :-\
