Best Christmas movies to watch: Top films of all time to get you in the festive spirit for 2016 With lashings of seasonal spirit, here are the top tracks to make sure you get the most out of Christmas - why not share your favourites in the comments below? Fairy Tale of new York:It's a funny one - his teeth are crooked, and the whole thing looks so terribly '80s. But if you close your eyes and listen, MacColl and McGowan are one of the true great duos, his desperate rasp complementing her much-missed vocals of misplaced hope. A true Christmas classic. 2. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey Everything that Fairytale of New York has - authenticity, heart, a dark sadness - Mariah's more recent hit resoundingly lacks. Luckily, it makes up for it all with a saccharine, catchy, finger-snapping tune that you just have to smile at. 3. White Christmas – Bing Crosby:Despite its vintage, this is the track where Bing sings and winter stops to listen.
