Out On Blue Six Xmas : The Flying Pickets

Not a Christmas song as such but it was number one for Christmas 1983, this a capella version of Yazoo's Only You is a real favourite of mine. The band's socialist principles saw them donate their royalties to the miners strike fund in '84 and they would attend many picket lines up and down the country showing their support for the miners.
