Worst Ever Christmas Songs
Yes we all know about Mariah Carey / The Pogues / Wham / Girls Aloud / Slade, so we thought we’d round up the real Christmas, er, ‘classics’.

Be warned, some of these may put you off Christmas for life.

Cascada – Last Christmas
Sadly, it does not go as mental as you would hope.

Los Del Rio - Macarena Christmas
There are simply no words to describe this.

Kate Bush – December Will be Magic Again
Kate's quirkiness almost seems normal in a Christmas setting.

Cheeky Girls - Boys and Girls (Christmas Time Love)
Only Cheeky Girls could turn ‘Summertime Love’ into a Christmas tune. What must Sabrina think?

Destiny’s Child – 8 Days of Christmas
We wonder what Sasha Fierce does at Christmas? Probably kicks reindeers and shags Santa.

Chris Brown – This Christmas
We’d rather Rihanna did one called ‘Please Don’t Stop The Christmas’. How good would that be? Very good, is the answer.

Crazy Frog – Last Christmas
We can only apologise for inflicting this on you. Come back Cascada, all is forgiven

Christina Aguilera – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
More ludicrous vocal gymnastics from slaggy Aggy, this time with added sleighbells!

Ch!pz – Christmas Time Is Here
Not a bad attempt at the whole ‘Christmas’ thing, all told. Well done, Ch!pz.

Darlene Love - All Alone on Christmas
Taken from the Home Alone 2 soundtrack. Which makes it doubley Christmassy.

Run DMC – Christmas In Hollis
Features a small dog wearing reindeer antlers. What more do you need?

Hotpantz – Give You One For Christmas
Unutterably bad, but gets included purely for the title.

Billie – Last Christmas
Has anybody NOT covered this song?

Basshunter – Jingle Bells
Good lord, can someone just put us out of our misery now?

Fast Food Rockers – I Love Christmas

Ozzy Osbourne and Jessica Simpson – Winter Wonderland
This is included for sheer ‘What the fuck?’-ness.

S Club 7 – Perfect Christmas
For the outfits.

New Kids On The Block – Funky, Funky Christmas
We are seriously losing the will to live.

Vonda Shepherd – This Christmas
Ally McBeal went really shit towards the end, didn’t it?

Spice Girls – Christmas Wrapping
Remember their Christmas Tesco adverts last year? They soooo hate each other.

Saint Etienne – I Was Born On Christmas Day
In a departure from the rest of the list, we’ve included one that’s Actually Good.

Let us know if we left any 'classics' out!

MEG: Precious (J-Pop)
Monday, 22 September 2008
Meg: Precious

Nothing seemed to have happened over the weekend. Boring. And as WAPS  happens to be in Japan for the next two weeks, we’ve decided to enlighten you on the joys of J-Pop (yes, that’s Japanese pop).

First up to grab our attention is 28-year old MEG from Hiroshima (not to be confused with the Italian Meg). The artwork and video for her single ‘Precious’ utilises kuroko, a style of Japanese puppetry using stagehands dressed all in black to manipulate characters and stage props (a technique also used by Scissor Sisters in the ‘She’s My Man’ video).

Anyway, it’s an upbeat electro song, and like most things Japanese, it’s very cute. We’re not sure what the song is about, but make sure you watch the bit around 02:35 mark to see some (really annoyed) cats getting in on the kuroko action.

Sayonara little pop slags!

Who is RedOne?
Tuesday, 12 August 2008
While still being very much obsessed with Lady Gaga, we decided to have a look at the producer behind her ‘Just Dance’ single. Swedish/Moroccan Nadir Khayat  - for it is he - is one of those producers with the slightly annoying trait of getting stars to sing his name at the beginning of every song. Fortunately for them, he has adopted a simpler moniker: RedOne. Wonder if his mum calls him that?

RedOne has been a very busy man this year, producing Heidi Montag’s ‘Fashion’ and ‘One More Drink’; the aforementioned Gaga’s ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Love Games’; New Kids On the Block’s comeback album... he’s even been hired to work his magic on Michael Jackson’s next effort.

His style sways between europop and clubby hip hop. We like him best when he’s doing pop, as in Tami Chynn’s excellent ‘Frozen’. Listen out for the trademark ‘RedOne’ at the beginning.

»   Robyn: Handle Me (RedOne remix)
»   Lady Gaga: Just Dance
»   Tami Chynn: Frozen
»   Kat DeLuna: Calling You

Not so excellent

»   Christina Aguilera: Candyman (RedOne Remix)
