My own nod in the direction of the only chart that ever mattered: John Peel's Festive 50
In order for a song to qualify, it had to be included on one of JP's original lists.
Which can be found here ( http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/festive50lists.htm )
I also only allowed ONE track from each artist. For obvious reasons!



Do try to enjoy it ~ V x
