Christmas: A time for peace, goodwill to all men, and terrible songs.
Nowhere more so than in Milton Keynes, where local would choose Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande as their favourite festive tune.
A poll by mobile phone provider Vodafone monitored all the Christmas-themed songs downloaded by Vodafone customers via the online music provider Spotify.
As well as Ariana Grande, customers in Milton Keynes plumped for the likes of Dido (is she still going?), popular beat combo N’Sync (Justin Timberlake and some other people), and of course Gloria Estefan.
A possible glitch in the system has been flagged however, as the sixth most popular song was Justin Bieber.
The top ten songs were:
1/ Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande
2/ Christmas Day by Dido
3/ I Don’t Wanna Spend One More Christmas Without You by N’Sync
4/ We Wish You A Merry Christmas by The Weavers
5/ All I Want Is You (This Christmas) by N’Sync
6/ All I Want For Christmas Is You (SuperFestive!) Duet with Mariah Carey by Justin Bieber
7/ Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming) by Melanie Thornton
8/ Snow In California by Ariana Grande
9/ Baby It’s Cold Outside by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John
10/ Christmas Through Your Eyes by Gloria Estefan
