And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

Taken from the charity song Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid (1984). The multi-million selling single was written in response to a severe famine in Ethiopia, and, along with several re-releases, has raised an estimated $150m into different causes. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone.

Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again

Taken from the song Last Christmas by 80s pop band Wham, from their final studio album Music from the Edge of Heaven (1986).  Kept off by the The Power of Love by Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Band Aid’s Do They Know it’s Christmas?, the much-loved song has regularly charted and been covered by a wide selection of artists, including Jimmy Eat World.
