and welcome to the Christmas Top Of The Pops 2,

0:00:070:00:10

with me, your reassuringly festive host, Mark Radcliffe.

0:00:100:00:14

A musical selection box, as ever. Let's kick off with an old favourite.

0:00:140:00:18

What, no hat?!

0:00:180:00:19

# Are you hanging up a stocking

0:00:190:00:22

# On your wall?

0:00:220:00:24

# It's the time that every Santa has a ball

0:00:260:00:32

# Does he ride a red-nosed reindeer?

0:00:340:00:37

# Does a ton-up on his sleigh?

0:00:370:00:41

# Do the fairies keep him sober

0:00:410:00:44

# For a day?

0:00:440:00:47

# So here it is, merry Christmas

0:00:480:00:52

# Everybody's having fun

0:00:520:00:56

# Look to the future now

0:00:570:01:00

# It's only just begun

0:01:000:01:08

# Are you waiting for the family

0:01:080:01:11

# To arrive?

0:01:110:01:12

# Are you sure you got the room

0:01:150:01:18

# To spare inside?

0:01:180:01:21

# Does your granny always tell ya

0:01:220:01:26

# That the old songs are the best?

0:01:260:01:30

# Then she's up and rock 'n' rollin'

0:01:300:01:33

# With the rest

0:01:330:01:36

# So here it is, merry Christmas

0:01:360:01:40

# Everybody's having fun

0:01:400:01:44

# Look to the future now

0:01:450:01:48

# It's only just begun

0:01:480:01:55

# What will your daddy do

0:01:560:01:59

# When he sees your mama

0:01:590:02:01

# Kissin' Santa Claus?

0:02:010:02:03

# Ah-ha, ah

0:02:030:02:07

# Are you hanging up a stocking

0:02:070:02:10

# On your wall?

0:02:100:02:12

# Are you hoping that the snow

0:02:150:02:17

# Will start to fall?

0:02:170:02:21

# Do you ride on down the hillside

0:02:220:02:25

# In a buggy you have made?

0:02:250:02:29

# When you land upon your head

0:02:290:02:32

# Then you've been sleighed

0:02:320:02:35

# So here it is, merry Christmas

0:02:360:02:40

It's Christmas!

0:03:200:03:24

# Look to the future now... #

0:03:220:03:24

Well, it saved waiting till the end, didn't it?

0:03:240:03:26

Slade, sporting their early '80s smart-casual look.

0:03:260:03:29

No, really. That IS what Dave Hill thinks of as smart-casual.

0:03:290:03:33

Ooh, look - real candles in a TV studio.

0:03:330:03:36

Can't have that with Health and Safety now.

0:03:360:03:38

It's all iPhone candle apps these days.

0:03:380:03:40

# It was Christmas Eve, babe

0:03:400:03:45

# In the drunk tank

0:03:450:03:49

# An old man said to me

0:03:490:03:53

# "Won't see another one"

0:03:530:03:57

# And then he sang a song

0:03:570:04:02

# The Rare Old Mountain Dew

0:04:020:04:06

# I turned my face away

0:04:060:04:10

# And dreamed about you

0:04:100:04:15

# Got on a lucky one

0:04:150:04:19

# Came in 18 to 1

0:04:190:04:23

# I've got a feeling

0:04:230:04:27

# This year's for me and you

0:04:270:04:32

# So happy Christmas

0:04:320:04:37

# I love you, baby

0:04:370:04:40

# I can see a better time

0:04:400:04:45

# When all our dreams come true

0:04:450:04:49

# They got cars big as bars

0:05:000:05:02

# They got rivers of gold

0:05:020:05:04

# But the wind goes right through you

0:05:040:05:05

# It's no place for the old

0:05:050:05:07

# When you first took my hand

0:05:070:05:08

# On a cold Christmas Eve

0:05:080:05:10

# You promised me Broadway was waiting for me

0:05:100:05:12

# You were handsome

0:05:120:05:13

# You were pretty Queen of New York City

0:05:130:05:15

-BOTH:

-# When the band finished playing

0:05:150:05:17

# They howled out for more

0:05:170:05:19

# Sinatra was swinging

0:05:190:05:20

# All the drunks they were singing

0:05:200:05:22

# We kissed on a corner Then danced through the night

0:05:220:05:25

# The boys of the NYPD choir

0:05:250:05:28

0:05:280:05:31

0:05:310:05:33

0:05:330:05:35

# You're a bum, you're a punk

0:05:460:05:47

# You're an old slut on junk

0:05:470:05:49

# Lying there almost dead

0:05:490:05:50

# On a drip in that bed

0:05:500:05:52

# You scumbag, you maggot

0:05:520:05:53

# You cheap, lousy faggot

0:05:530:05:55

# Happy Christmas, you ass

0:05:550:05:56

# I pray God it's our last

# I could have been someone

0:06:180:06:21

# Well, so could anyone

0:06:210:06:24

# You took my dreams from me

0:06:240:06:27

# When I first found you

0:06:270:06:30

# I kept them with me, babe

0:06:300:06:33

# I put them with my own

0:06:330:06:36

# Can't make it all alone

0:06:360:06:39

# I've built my dreams around you

-AS LEN GOODMAN:

-Seven!

0:07:010:07:02

Not a bad waltz, that, was it? She held him upright, at least.

0:07:020:07:05

OK, stubblesome man band Take That next.

0:07:050:07:08

Whatever happened to them, eh?

0:07:080:07:10

Merry Christmas, everyone!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:290:10:31

Strangely, it was a chilly winter scene

0:10:310:10:34

and that's the only time I've seen Gary not wearing a cardigan.

0:10:340:10:37

No knitwear in evidence here, either.

0:10:370:10:39

It's the glam Captain Mainwaring, Elton John,

0:10:390:10:41

in an outfit hastily run up out of turkey foil.

0:10:410:10:44

# Welcome to my Christmas song

# So merry Christmas, one and all

0:11:530:11:57

0:13:590:14:02

Elton John, before he got someone else's hair for Christmas.

0:14:020:14:05

Right, here's Peter Kay, making a very convincing woman,

0:14:050:14:09

though assisted by some very unconvincing snowmen.

0:14:090:14:12

# Once upon a Christmas song

0:14:140:14:16

# Everybody sang along

0:14:170:14:20

# You'd see the joy on every face

0:14:210:14:24

# And the world it seemed a happier place

0:14:240:14:27

# These songs brought us together

0:14:270:14:32

# Together

0:14:300:14:32

# Good time memories for ever

0:14:320:14:35

# For ever

0:14:330:14:35

# Now I know what they mean

0:14:350:14:38

# And what they've given to me

0:14:380:14:41

# I'd have never believed

0:14:410:14:45

# That we'd be singing them over and over and over again

0:14:450:14:50

# Every December they get in our heads

0:14:500:14:53

# Turn 'em up, play 'em loud

0:14:530:14:54

# Every Christmas should be the same

0:14:540:14:58

# Singing 'em over and over

0:14:580:15:00

# And over and over again

0:15:000:15:04

# They say they're good for the soul

0:15:040:15:07

# Good for the soul

0:15:070:15:08

# But someone tell me, I don't know

0:15:080:15:11

# Why no-one seems to write them no more

0:15:110:15:14

# Write them no more

0:15:140:15:18

So the only way to settle the score

0:15:150:15:18

# Is to all make way for a new one

0:15:180:15:23

A new one

0:15:210:15:23

# That keeps the heart of the old one

0:15:230:15:26

The old one

0:15:250:15:26

# With a little bit of festive cheer

0:15:260:15:30

# And you'll know when Christmas is near

0:15:300:15:32

# When this record appears

0:15:320:15:35

# Once a year You'll be singing this

0:15:350:15:37

# Over and over and over again

0:15:370:15:41

# Every December you'll hear it and say

0:15:410:15:44

# Turn it up, play it loud

0:15:440:15:46

# Every Christmas should be the same

0:15:460:15:49

# Singing it over and over

0:15:490:15:52

# And over and over again

0:15:520:15:54

# It's getting in your head

0:15:540:15:56

It's getting in your head

0:15:550:15:56

# It's getting in your head

0:15:560:15:58

Getting in your head

0:15:570:15:58

# And if you're not singing it all night

0:15:580:16:01

# You'd be telling a lie... #

Peter Kay as Geraldine - sort of Bette Midler meets a dinner lady.

0:17:100:17:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:140:17:18

OK, let's go off-piste.

0:17:200:17:21

And who's been carving Tom Jones's name in ice?

0:17:210:17:24

Or possibly polystyrene...

0:17:240:17:26

# Sleigh bells ring

0:17:380:17:41

# Are you listening?

0:17:420:17:44

# In the lane

0:17:450:17:47

# Snow is glistening

0:17:480:17:51

# A beautiful sight

0:17:520:17:56

# We're happy tonight

0:17:560:17:59

# Walking in a winter wonderland

0:17:590:18:04

# Gone away

0:18:060:18:08

# Is the bluebird

0:18:080:18:10

# Here to stay

0:18:100:18:11

# Is the new bird

0:18:110:18:14

# He sings a love song

0:18:140:18:16

# As we go along

0:18:160:18:17

# Walking in a winter wonderland

0:18:170:18:20

# In the meadow, we can build a snowman

0:18:210:18:24

# And pretend that he is Parson Brown

0:18:240:18:28

# He'll say, "Are you married?"

0:18:280:18:30

# We'll say, "No, man

0:18:300:18:32

# "But you can do the job when you're in town"

0:18:320:18:35

# Later on, we'll conspire

0:18:350:18:39

# As we dream

0:18:390:18:41

# By the fire

0:18:410:18:42

# To face unafraid

0:18:430:18:45

# The plans that we made

0:18:450:18:47

# Walking in a winter wonderland

0:18:470:18:49

# But you can do the job when you're in town

0:19:010:19:04

# Later on, we'll conspire

0:19:070:19:10

0:19:100:19:13

0:19:130:19:15

0:19:150:19:17

# The plans that we made

0:19:170:19:19

# Walking in a winter wonderland

0:19:190:19:22

# I'm walking in a winter wonderland

Tom Jones, taking half-hearted evasive action from the snowballs

0:19:370:19:40

whilst wearing his wife's new coat.

0:19:400:19:43

Yet more sartorial elegance now, with the ever-stylish Boney M.

0:19:430:19:47

# ..was born on Christmas Day

0:19:470:19:52

# And man will live for evermore

0:19:520:19:57

# Because of Christmas Day

0:19:570:20:02

# Long time ago in Bethlehem

0:20:110:20:14

# So the Holy Bible says

0:20:140:20:18

# Mary's boy child Jesus Christ

0:20:190:20:23

# Was born on Christmas Day

0:20:230:20:28

# Hark now hear the angels sing

0:20:300:20:34

# A king was born today

# And man will live for evermore

0:20:380:20:42

# Because of Christmas Day

0:20:420:20:47

# Mary's boy child Jesus Christ

0:20:470:20:51

# Was born on Christmas Day

0:20:510:20:55

# While shepherds watched

0:20:550:20:57

# Their flock by night

0:20:570:20:59

# They see a bright new shining star

0:20:590:21:03

# They hear a choir sing a song

0:21:030:21:07

# The music seemed to come from afar

0:21:070:21:12

# Hark now hear the angels sing

0:21:140:21:18

# A king was born today

0:21:180:21:23

# And man will live for evermore

THEY HUM

0:21:320:21:34

Another gruelling day at the coal face of popular culture

0:21:390:21:42

for Bobby and the radiant angels of Boney M.

0:21:420:21:45

Ah, panto time now!

0:21:470:21:50

First off, here's Paul Young as Buttons,

0:21:500:21:52

quickly followed by Boy George as Widow Twankey.

0:21:520:21:55

# It's Christmas time

0:21:550:21:57

# There's no need to be afraid

0:21:590:22:01

# At Christmas time

0:22:030:22:06

# We let in light and we banish shade

0:22:060:22:11

# And in our world of plenty

0:22:110:22:16

# We can spread a smile of joy

0:22:160:22:20

# Throw your arms around the world

0:22:200:22:23

# At Christmas time

0:22:230:22:27

# But say a prayer

0:22:280:22:30

# To pray for the other ones

0:22:320:22:36

# At Christmas time

0:22:360:22:39

# It's hard

0:22:390:22:40

# But when you're having fun

0:22:400:22:44

# There's a world outside your window

0:22:440:22:49

# And it's a world of dread and fear

0:22:490:22:53

# Where the only water flowing is

0:22:530:22:58

# The bitter sting of tears

0:22:580:23:01

# And the Christmas bells that ring there

0:23:010:23:06

# Are the clanging chimes of doom

0:23:060:23:10

# Well tonight, thank God it's them

0:23:100:23:13

# Instead of you

0:23:130:23:17

# And there won't be snow in Africa

0:23:190:23:22

# This Christmas time

0:23:220:23:25

# The greatest gift they'll get

0:23:270:23:30

# This year is life

0:23:300:23:33

# Oooh

0:23:330:23:35

# Where nothing ever grows

0:23:350:23:39

# No rain or rivers flow

0:23:390:23:44

# Do they know

0:23:440:23:46

# It's Christmas time at all?

0:23:460:23:50

# Oh-oh

0:23:500:23:52

# Here's to you

0:23:520:23:54

# Raise a glass for everyone

0:23:540:23:57

# Here's to them

0:23:570:23:58

# Underneath that burning sun

0:23:580:24:01

# Do they know

0:24:010:24:02

# It's Christmas time at all?

0:24:020:24:06

# Feed the world

0:24:220:24:25

# Feed the world

0:24:300:24:34

# Let them know... #

0:24:340:24:36

Hmm, there were a few absentees there, weren't there?

0:24:360:24:39

Probably a problem cramming that many egos into one small TV studio.

0:24:390:24:43

Ah, right - down the pub with Paul and Linda, now.

0:24:430:24:46

Free-range eggnogs all round - on the house!

0:24:460:24:49

# The mood is right

0:25:000:25:02

# The spirit's up

Paul, Linda and Wings in good spirits -

0:28:070:28:09

although sadly, the police arrived shortly afterwards to break up the party,

0:28:090:28:14

as Paul had forgotten to apply for a late licence. D'oh!

0:28:140:28:17

Nice duet between Sarah Cracknell and Tim Burgess now.

0:28:170:28:20

And with all those musicians miming,

0:28:200:28:22

you'd think someone could've done the decent thing

0:28:220:28:25

and mimed the all-important melodica bit.

0:28:250:28:27

# Spent the summer holed up in a room

0:28:270:28:31

# Looking pretty Won't you be here soon?

# I could phone you, tell you everything

0:29:160:29:20

# Like the crazy evenings on the yacht

0:29:200:29:24

# Tim and Sarah went and tied the knot

0:29:240:29:28

-BOTH:

-# Did you know they pulled the town hall down?

0:29:280:29:32

# I don't think you'll recognise this town

0:29:320:29:35

Filmed in a remote mountain hotel with the backing singers

Look, Tito, if you'd wanted to join in with the dancing,

0:36:390:36:42

you should have ditched the guitar. Too little, too late, me old son.

0:36:420:36:45

And for our next performance, it's whichever three were in the Sugababes that week.

Going down a storm.

A fake snowstorm, in fact.

Natalie Cole next, reviving a song made famous by her dad -

0:40:520:40:56

ex-England and Newcastle striker, Andy Cole.

0:40:560:40:59

# Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

0:40:590:41:04

# Jack Frost nipping at your nose

0:41:070:41:12

# Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

0:41:140:41:21

# Folks dressed up like Eskimos

0:41:210:41:26

# Everybody knows

0:41:260:41:29

# A turkey and some mistletoe

0:41:290:41:34

# Helps to make the season bright

0:41:360:41:40

# Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

0:41:440:41:49

# Will find it hard to sleep tonight

0:41:490:41:55

# They know that Santa's on his way

0:41:560:42:03

# He's loaded lots of toys and goodies

0:42:030:42:07

# On his sleigh

0:42:070:42:10

# And every mother's child is going to spy

0:42:110:42:17

# To see if reindeer really know how to fly

0:42:180:42:25

# And so I'm offering this simple phrase

0:42:270:42:33

# To kids from one to ninety-two

0:42:350:42:39

# Although it's been said many times, many ways

0:42:430:42:48

# Merry Christmas to you

Some nice bits of old film there.

0:44:080:44:10

Now, this next one isn't strictly speaking a Christmas song,

0:44:100:44:13

but it has a suitably festive celebratory feel to it.

0:44:130:44:16

It's Kool And The Gang.

0:44:160:44:18

In case you were wondering, Kool is the bass player.

0:44:180:44:21

I know. Perhaps it was his van.

CHEERING

0:47:220:47:23

Kool and the kind of Gang you probably wouldn't mind your kids getting wrapped up with.

0:47:230:47:28

Some Super 8 holiday footage from Abba now.

0:47:280:47:31

Like all holiday videos, nothing much happens really.

0:47:310:47:34

You had to be there, I think. Good song, mind.

0:47:340:47:37

# I've seen you twice in a short time

0:47:390:47:45

# Only a week since we started

0:47:450:47:51

# It seems to me, for every time

0:47:510:47:58

# I'm getting more open-hearted

0:47:580:48:04

# I was an impossible case

0:48:040:48:07

# No-one ever could reach me

0:48:070:48:11

# But I think I can see in your face

0:48:110:48:14

# There's a lot you can teach me

0:48:140:48:17

# So I wanna know

0:48:170:48:20

# What's the name of the game?

0:48:200:48:23

# Does it mean anything to you?

0:48:240:48:29

# What's the name of the game?

0:48:330:48:36

# Can you feel it the way I do?

0:48:370:48:41

# Tell me, please, cos I have to know

0:48:410:48:47

# I'm a bashful child, beginning to grow

0:48:470:48:54

# And you make me talk

0:48:550:48:58

# And you make me feel

0:48:580:49:02

# And you make me show

0:49:020:49:05

# What I'm trying to conceal

0:49:050:49:08

# If I trust in you, would you let me down?

0:49:080:49:14

# Would you laugh at me if I said I care for you?

0:49:140:49:21

# Could you feel the same way too?

0:49:230:49:26

# I wanna know

A reminder of the religious side of things from Annie Lennox, who appears to have left her curlers in.

0:49:310:49:36

# Let nothing you dismay

0:49:360:49:40

# For Jesus Christ our Saviour

0:49:400:49:43

0:51:060:51:10

# The son of God by name

0:51:100:51:14

Annie Lennox, out and about spreading good cheer in Narnia.

0:52:460:52:49

Meanwhile, on the other side of the wardrobe, we're back in the Top Of The Pops studio.

It's a really good idea, that, for rowdy Christmas singalongs -

0:56:030:56:06

chorus refrains with no words in them.

OK, seasonal a cappella fun with the Flying Pickets next.

0:56:090:56:12

Relax, girls. They're spoken for.

# Ba-ra-ra-ra

0:56:160:56:18

0:56:200:56:22

# Ba-ra-ra-ra

0:56:230:56:25

# Looking from a window above

0:56:250:56:28

# It's like a story of love

0:56:280:56:31

# Can you hear me?

0:56:320:56:35

# Came back only yesterday

0:56:350:56:38

# Moving further away

0:56:380:56:41

# Want you near me

0:56:410:56:44

# All I needed was the love you gave

0:56:450:56:49

# All I needed for another day

0:56:500:56:54

# And all I ever knew

0:56:540:56:58

# Only you

0:56:580:57:00

# Sometimes when I think of your name

0:57:040:57:07

# And it's only a game

0:57:070:57:09

# And I need you

0:57:100:57:14

# Listening to the words that you say

0:57:140:57:17

# It's getting harder to stay

0:57:170:57:20

# When I see you

0:57:200:57:24

# All I needed was the love you gave

0:57:240:57:28

# All I needed for another day

0:57:290:57:33

# And all I ever knew

0:57:330:57:37

# Only you

0:57:370:57:39

# Ba-ra-ra, ba-ra-ra, ba-ra-ra-ra

0:57:430:57:48

# Ba-ra, ba-ra, ba-ra, ba-ra

0:57:530:57:55

# Ba-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra

0:57:550:57:57

# Ba-ra-ra-ra, ba-ra-ra-ra

# All I needed was the love you gave

0:58:030:58:07

# All I needed for another day

0:58:080:58:11

# And all I ever knew

0:58:110:58:16

# Only you

0:58:160:58:18

# This is going to take a long time

0:58:210:58:24

# And I wonder what's mine

0:58:240:58:27

# Can't take no more

0:58:280:58:31

# Wonder if you'll understand

0:58:310:58:34

# It's just the touch of your hand

0:58:340:58:37

# Behind a closed door

0:58:380:58:40

# All I needed was the love you gave

0:58:410:58:45

# All I needed for another day

0:58:460:58:50

# Ba-ra-ra-ra... #

0:59:100:59:11

A fine vocal blend from the Flying Pickets, who were sadly outlawed due to reform of the trade unions.

0:59:110:59:18

Back to Christmas 2004 now, and a Minogue medley.

0:59:180:59:23

The male dancers appear to have rummaged through the dressing-up box

0:59:230:59:26

and come out with random hats.

0:59:260:59:28

"Hey, guys, check me out, I got the knitted centurion's helmet!"

0:59:280:59:32

# Non-stop dancing at the bus stop To the funky music

0:59:320:59:38

# Hustle, pumpin' the muscle Blame it on the boogie

0:59:400:59:45

# Remember the old days

0:59:460:59:51

# Remember the O'Jays

0:59:510:59:55

# Walkin' in rhythm

0:59:550:59:58

# Life was for livin'

0:59:591:00:03

# When you can't find the music To get down and boogie

1:00:031:00:08

# All you can do is step back in time

1:00:081:00:11

# Ball of confusion When nothing is new, and

1:00:111:00:15

# There's nothing doin' Step back in time

1:00:151:00:19

# Whoo! Step back in time... #

1:00:241:00:27

Merry Christmas, everyone!

1:00:281:00:31

Hope you find something nice in your stockings today!

1:00:311:00:35

# Tell me I'm only dreaming

1:00:431:00:48

# And I'll believe you

1:00:481:00:51

# Can't see how this could be true

1:00:511:00:57

# Surrounded by feelings I hardly recognise

1:00:581:01:02

# I look for explanations I'm taken by surprise

1:01:021:01:07

# If you told me yesterday that I could feel this way

1:01:071:01:10

# I would sure enough call you a liar to your face

1:01:101:01:14

# Because I'm shocked by the power

1:01:141:01:16

# Ooh Shocked by the power of love

1:01:161:01:20

# Shocked to my very foundations

1:01:211:01:26

# Shocked by the power

1:01:261:01:28

# Shocked, like the lightning from up above

1:01:301:01:32

# Down from the heavens and it gave me love

1:01:321:01:35

# From a man who respects me

1:01:351:01:36

# Loves my mind as well as my body

1:01:361:01:38

# No retreat and no surrender Equal to you regardless of gender

1:01:381:01:41

# Giving me love that is warm and tender

1:01:411:01:44

# That's why I gotta tell ya

1:01:441:01:46

# You and I are of the same mind

1:01:461:01:48

# It seems to me that we're one of a kind

1:01:481:01:50

# It's true to say that love is blind

1:01:501:01:52

# But then true love is so hard to find

1:01:521:01:54

# You respect me and the things I do

1:01:541:01:56

# It was meant to be I was made for you

1:01:561:01:58

# Open the door to my heart, it's stopped

1:01:581:02:00

# And I'm shocked... #

1:02:001:02:03

How you feeling? CHEERING

1:02:111:02:13

# Better the devil you know

1:02:131:02:15

# Better the devil you know

1:02:151:02:17

# Woh-woh-woh-oh

1:02:171:02:22

# Say you won't leave me no more

1:02:221:02:26

# I'll take you back again

1:02:271:02:29

# No more excuses, no, no

1:02:301:02:34

# Cos I've heard them all before

1:02:341:02:38

# A hundred times... # Let me hear you!

1:02:381:02:42

# I'll forgive and forget

1:02:441:02:48

# If you say you'll never go

1:02:481:02:52

# Cos it's true what they say

1:02:521:02:56

# It's better the devil you know

1:02:561:03:00

# I'll be here every day

1:03:001:03:03

# Waiting for your love to show... #

1:03:041:03:08

Let me hear you! What do they say?

1:03:081:03:11

# It's better the devil you know... #

1:03:121:03:15

Whoo!

1:03:151:03:17

# Woh-woh-woh... #

1:03:171:03:21

Everyone's favourite Christmas party girl, Kylie.

1:03:361:03:40

Right, if it's swaying you want, here's a mass outbreak.

1:03:401:03:44

1:04:311:04:46

# Here we are as in olden days

1:04:461:04:52

# Happy golden days of yore

1:04:521:04:59

# Faithful friends who are dear to us

1:04:591:05:06

# Gather near to us once more

1:05:061:05:14

# Through the years we all will be together

1:05:141:05:20

# If the fates allow

1:05:211:05:28

# Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

1:05:281:05:41

# And have yourself a merry little Christmas now. #

1:05:411:06:00

Nice to see someone doing it live, no frills, isn't it? The elfin charms of Katie Melua.

1:06:021:06:08

More "what we did on our holidays" film now. This is Wham! with Last Christmas.

1:06:081:06:12

So called because we did show you this...last Christmas.

1:06:121:06:16

# Last Christmas

1:06:161:06:18

# I gave you my heart

1:06:181:06:20

# But the very next day

1:06:201:06:22

# You gave it away

1:06:221:06:25

# This year

1:06:251:06:27

# To save me from tears

1:06:271:06:29

# Special

1:06:501:06:52

# Once bitten and twice shy

1:07:101:07:15

# I keep my distance

1:07:151:07:16

# But you still catch my eye

1:07:161:07:19

# Tell me, baby

1:07:191:07:21

# Do you recognise me?

1:07:211:07:23

# Well, it's been a year

1:07:231:07:25

# It doesn't surprise me

1:07:251:07:27

# "Happy Christmas"

1:07:281:07:30

# I wrapped it up and sent it

1:07:301:07:32

# With a note saying, "I love you"

1:07:321:07:35

# I meant it

1:07:351:07:37

# Now I know what a fool I've been

1:07:371:07:40

# But if you kissed me now

1:07:401:07:43

# I know you'd fool me again

1:07:431:07:45

# Last Christmas

1:07:451:07:48

# I gave you my heart

1:07:481:07:50

1:08:201:08:21

# Oh

1:08:211:08:23

# Oh, my baby

1:08:251:08:28

# A crowded room

1:08:401:08:42

# Friends with tired eyes

1:08:421:08:44

# I'm hiding from you

1:08:441:08:46

# And your soul of ice

1:08:461:08:49

# My God! I thought you were

1:08:491:08:51

# Someone to rely on

1:08:511:08:53

# Me? I guess I was

1:08:531:08:55

# A shoulder to cry on

1:08:551:08:57

# A face on a lover

1:08:571:08:59

# With a fire in his heart

1:08:591:09:02

# A man undercover

1:09:021:09:04

# But you tore me apart

1:09:041:09:08

# Ooh-ooh

1:09:091:09:10

# Now I've found a real love

1:09:101:09:12

# You'll never fool me again

1:09:121:09:15

# Last Christmas

1:09:151:09:17

1:09:171:09:19

-# You gave it away

-You gave it away

1:09:281:09:32

# Special

1:09:321:09:33

# Last Christmas

1:09:331:09:35

# I gave you my heart

1:09:351:09:37

# But you tore him apart

1:09:581:10:00

# Maybe next year

1:10:011:10:03

# I'll give it to someone

1:10:041:10:07

# I'll give it to someone special. #

1:10:071:10:10

Now, this next track really did happen last Christmas.

1:10:101:10:14

It's reluctant elves Muse, whose intense glam post-rock

1:10:141:10:18

isn't remotely compromised by a bit of the old seasonal fancy dress.

1:10:181:10:21

Oh, and look out for the dancing girls,

1:10:211:10:23

doing moves that will forever be associated with '70s Top Of The Pops stalwarts Mud.

1:10:231:10:29

# The paranoia is in bloom, the PR

1:10:571:11:01

# The transmissions will resume

1:11:011:11:04

# They'll try to push drugs, keep us all dumbed down

1:11:041:11:07

# And hope that we will never see the truth around

1:11:071:11:11

# Another promise, another scene, another

1:11:131:11:16

# Package meant to keep us trapped in greed

1:11:161:11:18

# With all the green belts wrapped around our minds

1:11:181:11:23

# And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

1:11:231:11:26

# They will not force us

1:11:351:11:42

# They will stop degrading us

1:11:421:11:49

# They will not control us

1:11:491:11:57

# And we will be victorious

1:11:571:12:04

# Interchanging mind control

1:12:081:12:11

# Come let the revolution take its toll, if you could

1:12:111:12:16

# Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that

1:12:161:12:20

# We should never be afraid to die

1:12:201:12:23

# Rise up and take the power back, it's time that

1:12:241:12:27

# The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that

1:12:271:12:31

# Their time is coming to an end

1:12:311:12:34

# We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

1:12:341:12:38

# They will not force us

1:12:461:12:52

# They will stop degrading us

1:12:531:13:01

# They will not control us

1:13:011:13:08

# And we will be victorious

1:13:081:13:16

# They will not force us

1:13:531:14:00

# They will stop degrading us

1:14:011:14:07

# They will not control us

1:14:091:14:16

# And we will be victorious. #

1:14:161:14:23

Ooh, that was just so full of festive cheer, wasn't it?

1:14:511:14:55

And now, by comparison, exuding more Christmas spirit but in strangely muted apparel,

1:14:551:15:00

it's Shakey.

Come on, props department, where's the old Yuletide dandruff?

1:18:161:18:20

Ah, seasonal subzero riverside revels now,

1:18:201:18:23

with a hundred lucky, plucky Coldplay fans

1:18:231:18:25

taken on a chilly boat ride to get up close and personal with their heroes.

1:18:251:18:29

A bit of heartwarming goodwill to be sure.

1:18:291:18:32

The song's called Christmas Lights.

1:18:321:18:34

# Christmas night, another fight

1:18:481:18:52

# Tears we cried a flood

1:18:521:18:54

# Got all kinds of poison in

1:18:551:18:59

# Of poison in my blood

1:18:591:19:02

# I took my feet to Oxford Street

1:19:031:19:06

# Trying to right a wrong

1:19:061:19:09

# Just walk away, those windows say

1:19:101:19:13

# But I can't believe she's gone

1:19:131:19:16

# When you're still waiting for the snow to fall

1:19:171:19:21

# Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

1:19:211:19:25

# Up above candles on air flicker

1:19:381:19:42

# Oh, they flicker and they float

1:19:421:19:46

# But I'm up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope

1:19:461:19:53

# Like some drunken Elvis singing

1:19:531:19:56

# I go singing out of tune

1:19:561:20:00

# Saying how I always loved you, darling

1:20:001:20:04

# And I always will

1:20:041:20:07

# Oh, when you're still waiting for the snow to fall

1:20:071:20:12

# It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

1:20:121:20:16

# Still waiting for the snow to fall

1:20:161:20:19

# It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

1:20:191:20:23

# Those Christmas lights

1:20:381:20:43

# Light up the street

1:20:431:20:46

# Down where the sea and city meet

1:20:461:20:51

# May all your troubles soon be gone

1:20:511:20:57

# Oh, Christmas lights, keep shining on

1:20:571:21:03

# Those Christmas lights

1:21:031:21:06

# Light up the street

1:21:061:21:09

# Maybe they'll bring her back to me

1:21:091:21:15

# Then all my troubles will be gone

1:21:151:21:21

# Oh, Christmas lights, keep shining on

1:21:211:21:26

# Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

1:21:391:21:45

# Oh, Christmas lights

1:21:501:21:54

# Light up the street

1:21:541:21:57

# Light up the fireworks in me

1:21:571:22:03

# May all your troubles soon be gone

1:22:031:22:09

# Those Christmas lights, keep shining on. #

1:22:091:22:16

And now you know it - you too can join the Coldplay Christmas sing-along-a-party

1:22:221:22:27

when they perform it on Top Of The Pops on Christmas Day.

1:22:271:22:30

OK, nearly there now, but let's take a moment of reflection by the old log fire with Bing Crosby.

1:22:301:22:36

# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

1:22:361:22:44

# Just like the ones I used to know

1:22:441:22:50

# Where the treetops glisten

1:22:501:22:54

# And children listen

1:22:541:22:58

# To hear sleigh bells in the snow

1:22:581:23:06

# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

1:23:071:23:15

# With every Christmas card I write

1:23:161:23:22

# May your days be merry and bright

1:23:221:23:31

# And may all your Christmases

1:23:321:23:39

# Be white

1:23:391:23:42

# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

1:23:461:23:54

# Just like the ones I used to know... #

1:23:541:23:58

Where the treetops glisten...

1:23:581:24:00

# Where the treetops glisten... #

1:24:001:24:04

And children listen...

1:24:041:24:05

# And children listen

1:24:051:24:08

-# To hear

-To hear

1:24:081:24:12

# Sleigh bells in the snow

1:24:121:24:18

-# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

-Mm-hm

1:24:191:24:27

# With every Christmas card I write

1:24:271:24:33

# May your days be merry and bright

1:24:341:24:45

# And may all your Christmases

1:24:451:24:54

# Be white. #

1:24:541:25:00

So, last one now, and we need a big finish.

1:25:011:25:04

We've already had Slade, and so the only other way to end is...

1:25:041:25:08

# When the snowman brings the snow

1:25:081:25:11

# Well, he just might like to know

1:25:111:25:15

# He's put a great big smile on somebody's face

1:25:151:25:21

# If you jump into your bed

1:25:221:25:25

# Quickly cover up your head

1:25:251:25:28

# Don't you lock the doors

1:25:281:25:30

# You know that sweet Santa Claus is on the way

1:25:301:25:35

# Well, I wish it could be Christmas

1:25:351:25:39

# Every day

1:25:391:25:42

# When the kids start singing

1:25:421:25:44

# And the band begins to play

1:25:441:25:48

# Oh, I wish it could be Christmas

1:25:481:25:52

# Every day

1:25:521:25:55

# Let the bells ring out

1:25:561:25:59

# For Christmas

1:25:591:26:03

# When we're skating in the park

1:26:051:26:08

# If the snow cloud makes it dark

1:26:081:26:11

# Then your rosy cheeks are gonna light my merry way

1:26:111:26:17

# Now the frosty paws appear

1:26:181:26:22

# And they've frozen up my beard

1:26:221:26:25

# So we'll lie by the fire

1:26:251:26:27

# Till the sleep simply melts 'em all away

1:26:271:26:31

# Well, I wish it could be Christmas

1:26:311:26:35

# Every day

1:26:351:26:39

# When the kids start singing

1:26:391:26:41

# And the band begins to play

1:26:411:26:45

# Oh, I wish it could be Christmas

1:26:451:26:48

# Every day

1:26:481:26:52

# So let the bells ring out

1:26:521:26:56

# For Christmas

1:26:561:27:00

-# When the snowman brings the snow

-When the snowman brings the snow

1:27:241:27:28

-# Well he just might like to know

-Just might like to know

1:27:281:27:32

# He's put a great big smile on somebody's face

1:27:321:27:37

-# So if Santa brings that sleigh

-Santa brings that sleigh

1:27:381:27:42

-# Along the Milky Way

-Along the Milky Way

1:27:421:27:45

# I'll sign my name on the rooftop in the snow, then he may decide to stay

1:27:451:27:51

# Well, I wish it could be Christmas

1:27:511:27:55

# Every day

1:27:551:27:57

# When the kids start singing

1:27:581:28:00

# And the band begins to play

1:28:001:28:04

# Every day

1:28:081:28:12

# So let the bells ring out

1:28:121:28:16

# For Christmas... #

1:28:161:28:19

OK, you lot, take it!

1:28:191:28:22

# Well, I wish it could be Christmas every day

1:28:221:28:28

# When the kids start singing... #

1:28:281:28:31

Now, that's what I call a good old family Christmas bash.

1:28:311:28:34

Tinsel, party hats, a range of snacks, a French horn, a giant panda

1:28:341:28:38

and a weird old beardy uncle from the Midlands wearing eye shadow.

1:28:381:28:41

Merry Christmas, Roy. Merry Christmas, everyone. Have a good one, won't you?

1:28:411:28:45

And the Christmas Top Of The Pops is on at 2pm on BBC One on Christmas Day.

1:28:451:28:50

# Why don't you give your love

1:28:501:28:57

# For Christmas. #
