Help us pick the 12 songs of Christmas ... from the '80s of course



Yes, even Max Headroom had a Christmas song. Enough said.

Stuck in the '80s is working on its annual Christmas podcast, which this year will feature the 12 songs of Christmas. And we'll rank them. (Cue thunderous sounds of intrigue.)

That might mean a showdown for top spot between Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas and the Pogues' Fairytale of New York.

But we're also searching for long-forgotten and obscure sounds of the season, like the one by Max Headroom. So don't be shy with your suggestions, even if you think they don't deserve the top spot.

Pop quiz: Which of the following bands does NOT have a Christmas song in the '80s? Queen, Squeeze, The Alarm, They Might Be Giants, or none of the above.

And don't forget to leave a comment below with your suggested songs and forgotten classics.
