Songs For Christmas II

Two very different Christmas songs for your listening pleasure today:

First up, the Godfather of Soul himself, who passed away on Christmas Day last year:

James Brown - 'Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto.' mp3

...And a cover of a Christmas classic from when I was a kid. I believe that for many years, this Wham! song was the biggest selling record in the UK not to go to No.1 (Band Aid's 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' held the spot at the time.) Funnily enough, this was also covered by the Manic Street Preachers in the late 90s, too...

Jimmy Eat World -'Last Christmas (Wham! cover).' mp3
