Some '80s Xmas singles

Vote in the 2019 Off The Chart Christmas poll!

It’s not that time again, is it?

Yes it is! Once again we’re asking you to vote for your favourite ’80s Christmas hits – tick off as many as you like, we’ll count up the votes and present the top twenty on a special Off The Chart over the festive period.

We’ve painstakingly gone through the Official Charts website and extracted every Christmas single (and some that we don’t think are really Christmas singles but there was an outcry when we left them out in previous years) that entered the UK singles chart for the first time between 1980 and 1989. That rules out things like Slade’s Merry Xmas Everybody and Wizzard’s I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday, because although they were hits at various points throughout the ’80s, they were reissues of ’70s hits; but David Bowie and Bing Crosby’s Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy makes the cut although it was recorded in 1977, because it wasn’t a hit single until 1982. So if any of your favourites are missing, that’s because they didn’t qualify. Sorry about that, but we have to draw the line somewhere…
