Another new 2010 Christmas song entering to be British nº1 hit this Christmas: Coldplay with "Christmas lights".
Lyrics of "CHRISTMAS LIGHTS" - Coldplay
Christmas night, another fight Tears we cried a flood Got all kinds of poison in Poison in my blood I took my feet To Oxford Street Trying to right a wrong Just walk away Those windows say But I can't believe she's gone
When you're still waiting for the snow to fall Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all Up above candles on air flicker Oh they flicker and they float But I'm up here holding on To all those chandeliers of hope Like some drunken Elvis singing I go singing out of tune Saying how I always loved you darling And I always will
Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all Still waiting for the snow to fall It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
Those Christmas lights Light up the street Down where the sea and city meet May all your troubles soon be gone Oh Christmas lights keep shining on
Those Christmas lights Light up the street Maybe they'll bring her back to me Then all my troubles will be gone Oh Christmas lights keep shining on Oh Christmas lights Light up the street Light up the fireworks in me May all your troubles soon be gone Oh Christmas lights keep shining on
Another Christmas song for 2010 is Kylie's version of an all-time Christmas classic "LET IT SNOW". "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in 1945. It was written in July 1945 in Hollywood. First recorded by Vaughn Monroe, it became a popular hit, reaching number one on the Billboard music chart the following year. One of the best-selling songs of all time, "Let It Snow!" has been covered countless times. Due to its seasonal lyrics, it is commonly regarded as a Christmas song. Yet despite its cheery, holiday feel, it is a love song that never mentions Christmas. Here's the latest by Kylie 2010.

where it says:"all of the pass waiting out for Christmas"
should say:"All of the bells ringing out for Christmas"
Spain's last 5-day-off period before Christmas has become a complete chaos as the Spanish air-traffic controllers walked out of their job-posts last Friday in the middle of a busy travelling weekend. Air traffic didn't get back to normal until the army took control of the situation, but when already many passengers were stranded at the airports not being able to fly. Here are videos of the news.
