No I don't mean Christmas Carols but Christmas chart music. Over the years, two have remained firm favoutites for me:
Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry
The Pogues with Kirsty McColl - Fairytale of New York

Fairytale of New York without a doubt, the lyrics are so honest. Is Shane McGowan still alive? If so, how come?

He is still alive, which is proof that Guinness contains all the nutrients a body needs...

As alan14 says Shane McGowan is still alive and kicking I seen an interview with him not that long ago, although he is hard to understand as he appears to slur his words, now I wonder what can be causing that ;)

While it's not my particular cup of tea, I'm pretty sure that the grandaddy of them all, Bing Crosby's White Christmas, has made it into the charts at least once, and it is still the best selling single ever.

and the rest however no longer the best seller I think Elton has that with the Diana tribute song

How about "Scarlet Ribbons" by Harry Belafonte? It didn't start out as a carol, even if it is one now. But then most of the ones mentioned, seem to be played as carols now.

"no longer the best seller I think Elton has that with the Diana tribute song"

I think you'll find that many of Elton's sales were as part of albums, compilations and downloads, rather than as a single, which is what I was referring to.
