WildWorks Extra – The Holiday Edition

Here’s a special entry since I got lots of time to study for my last exams on Thursday.

Holiday edition.
What would be my favorite “non-traditional” Christmas songs?
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by U2 and another version by Darlene Love.
Do They Know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid and/or Band Aid 20
Happy Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon
The Christmas Song (Holiday Remix) by Christina Aguilera

To anyone, what would be your song of the year?
Here are the lists
Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland
Hips Don’t Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean
Crazy by Gnarls Barkley
Ain’t No Other Man by Christina Aguilera
SOS by Rihanna
SexyBack by Justin Timberlake
Deja Vu by Beyoncè
London Bridge by Fergie
Bad Day by Daniel Powter
Ridin’ by Chamillionaire featuring Krayzie Bone

In my opinion, my picks would be either “Hips Don’t Lie” or “Crazy” because they were number 1 on the UK charts for several weeks. Crazy went for 9 weeks in the UK and it got a lot of “buzz.” As for “Hip Don’t Lie” went for 5 weeks and it was basically the Summer song of 2006. It was #1 for one week in July in the UK, but went back to #1 in late July and August.
