Leasevan releases the top choices from their van drivers Christmas playlist. Did your favourite festive track make the cut?

I’m driving home for Christmas…I can’t wait to see their faces…well you get the idea. It’s Christmas time and as is tradition you can’t move for Christmas jingles.

There’s more Christmas songs than ever but it always feels like we go back to our favourites at this time of year. You know your favourites, but how do they compare to other tradespeople?

Leasevan decided to find out for themselves. The company polled their customers for their favourite yuletide songs. From those results they’ve compiled the ultimate van driver’s Christmas playlist. The question is…did your top choice make the final cut?

Check out the top ten songs below:

The Van Driver’s Christmas Playlist

1. The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, Fairytale of New York
2. Band Aid, Do They Know It’s Christmas
3. Chris de Burgh, A Spaceman Came Travelling
4. John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Happy Christmas (War is Over)
5. Bing Crosby, White Christmas
6. The Ramones, Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)
7. Wham!,Last Christmas
8. Eartha Kitt, Santa Baby
9. Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody
10. Shakin’ Stevens, Merry Christmas Everyone

There’s no shortness of classics on this Christmas playlist. Some are more obvious driving songs: Slade‘s Merry Christmas Everybody and Shakin’ StevensMerry Christmas Everyone definitely break up a long motorway journey. There’s also a lot of slower, softer songs like Earth Kitts Santa Baby and Band Aid‘s Do They Know It’s Christmas. Bing Crosby‘s White Christmas is perhaps the most traditional track, while The RamonesMerry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight Tonight) is the most surprising addition. The top spot is taken by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl‘sFairytale of New York, which is a hard song to beat when it comes to getting into the Christmas spirit.
