Santa Claus & The Christmas Trees - Singalong-A-Santa

Here is a Top Of The Pops performance on December 16th 1982 (introduced by the late Sir Jimmy Savile - R.I.P) by a group who Sound like a bunch of tanked-up cockney lads having a pub knees-up. This jolly medley of Christmas tunes managed to reach #19 in the UK single chart during December 1982.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Top Of The Pops studio, the following year this bunch had another hit with Singalong-A-Santa Again. This time reaching #39. Fortunately, that was the last we saw of this lot! 

Actually, it's quite surprising how many Christmas tunes there were in the 80s that never get played anymore. Most radio stations are playing the same old stuff such as Slade, Wizzard, Wham and Shakin' Stevens, but having browsed through the past charts there are literally dozens of Christmas hits that seem to have been completely forgotton about.
