To mark the countdown to Christmas we will feature a festive song during the ten days leading up to Christmas Day. From the well-known to the more obscure, each tune is sure to help you to get into the Christmas spirit!

2. Christmas Lights – Coldplay

This song from Coldplay is yet another of their melancholy masterpieces; it’s a folksy ballad evocative of their familiar sound, with well-written lyrics and an anthemic chorus. The song’s simplicity and the lyrical realism is a winning formula for any Christmas track, but the emotional delivery from Chris Martin makes Christmas Lights an exceptional festive treat.
