Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea.
| Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea
I'm not a Chris Rea fan, but as far as Christmas songs go this has to be one of the most realistic and relatable - although perhaps not so much this year. This is a kind of bittersweet selection for me, as it is something I always feel guilty for not being able to do.
Christmas, in Ireland at least, is a time for families to get together, driving the length of the country or flying in. And of course there are the ferries too.
It's got a pleasant beat that seems to convey a very seasonal feel.
