London, UK (PRWEB UK) 18 December 2011
With UK High Street now in final Festive mode, a consumer survey reveals the Christmas Playlist from Hell – the songs they dont want to hear this holiday season.
In a study carried out for Immedia Plc, which provides music strategies for retailers, UK consumers put tracks by teenage sensation Justin Bieber (Misteltoe) and 80s TV star David Hasselhof (Stille Nacht) in with novelty character Mr Blobby (Christmas in Blobby Land) in a Christmas Playlist from Hell.
Immedias study also found that shoppers feel Christmas music is too repetitive, with over 2/3 (68%) saying that the same music is played again and again.
Immedias study, which involved 1000 consumers revealed the least favourite Christmas songs also includes songs by Gary Glitter, Rolf Harris, S Club 7 and Cliff Richard:
1 – Christmas in Blobby Land (Mr Blobby)
2 – Mistletoe (Justin Bieber)
3 – Stille Nacht (David Hasselhoff)
4 – Another Rock and Roll Christmas (Gary Glitter)
5 – Proper Crimbo (Bo Selecta)
6 – Christmas in the Sun (Rolf Harris)
7 – Christmas, baby please come home (Death cab by cutie)
8 – Perfect Christmas (S Club 7)
9 – Twas the night before Christmas (Snoop and Nate Dogg)
10 – 21st century Christmas (Cliff Richard)
The results also show that the festive classic ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ by Slade remains the favourite song to put Britain’s shoppers in the holiday spirit, closely followed by I Wish it Could be Christmas everyday (Wizzard) and Do They Know its Christmas (Band Aid). .
