It's the most wonderful time of the year again and seasonal music is already on full blast everywhere you go.

Celebrities including Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony and Sabrina Carpenter have all dropped brand new Christmas songs - along with new takes on classic tracks - so we thought we'd share some festive favourites of the Evening Times team.

Graham Shields

Just Like Christmas by Low (1999)                               

The Minnesota minimalists Low use jaunty sleigh bells to give this snowy journey home some momentum.

Stacey Mullen

Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin Stevens (1985)

I thought he was cute when I was a kid and I used to watch the video over and over. Christmas doesn’t begin until I hear Shaky.

Catriona Stewart

Star of Wonder by Sufjan Stevens (2006)

My first Christmas album was Hanson’s Snowed In. Happy days, happy memories.

But my grown-up favourite is Sufjan Stevens, who has many, many bonkers and brilliant and bursting Christmas songs. Did I Make You Cry on Christmas Day (Well You Deserved It), say, or That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!

But my go-to song would be Star of Wonder. It’s beautiful and pulsing and feels uplifting despite the sad lyrics. I love Christmas hymns and this has something hymnal about it. It’s a perfect lead up before going out to the Watchnight service at Glasgow Cathedral on Christmas Eve.

Jenness Mitchell

4 Carats by Kelly Clarkson (2013)

I love this song because it's got a good beat, fun lyrics and doesn't sound like a tired and worn song from the 70's.

Caroline Wilson

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses (1982)

Pretty much, the only cool yule tune.

Janice Bell

A Winter’s Tale by David Essex (1982)

This song reminds us that not everyone is blissfully happy at Christmas.

The lyrics are sad but I still love the song because whenever I hear it I can still visualise Mr Handsome David Essex!

Laura Forsyth

Do They Know It's Christmas? by various artists for Band Aid (1984)

It's a blast to the past with cheesy 80s vibes and hairdos - and all for a good cause! Got totally ruined with all the newer singles although I do enjoy the Dizzee Rascal break down rap in the 2004 version.

And the most popular choice....

Jackie Brogan, Anne Gacutan and Iona Turner

Last Christmas by Wham! (1984)

Jackie: I love this song and video. I was a massive Wham! fan when I was younger and fancied George Michael - his hair is so lush in the video! I suppose the idea of all your family and friends in a lodge at Christmas is just my idea of the perfect Christmas.

Anne: For as long as I can remember, this is the song that is on in our household first thing every Christmas morning – including Christmas Day 2009 – On the Karaoke machine. On a beach. In the Philippines. It is also the song that my Dad likes to belt out after Christmas dinner and a few whiskies. As this Christmas is the first one without the legend, George Michael, singing this on Christmas morning will feel extra special.

Iona: Although my Christmas playlist is bursting with festive favourites this heartbreaker has to take the number one spot. The perfect combination of Christmas chimes, bitter resentment for a heartless ex and the angelic voice of George Michael. What's not to love?

Christmas really isn’t Christmas without your favourite festive feel-good songs blasting away.
