I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.

I'm glad The Darkness is on here - not many songs nearly top the UK charts with those chorus lyrics

I love it! Would you like me to include your list in the AMF Survey ❄ Top 100 Christmas Songs (2018) survey this year?

Thanks Daniel.
I'll post the top 100 in your survey thread. I might change it a bit to add some carols. :D
