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!

Dear Danny, Donnie, Joey, Jonathan and Jordan,

Why did you release ‘Single’ as your second comeback single, while you have an amazing club-banger featuring Lady Gaga sitting on the shelf, gathering dust?  Seriously, no offense to Ne-yo, but he clearly kept all the good songs to himself. Gaga shared hers with you, so be grateful and release an ace video for this in return.

Thank you.

In other pop news (see what we did there?), Lady Gaga will be hosting the series premiere of NewNowNext Pop Lab. This brand new TV show will feature up-and-coming party music in all its forms. If you’re in the US, watch the premiere on American TV channel LOGO this Wednesday, September 3rd at midnight (ET/PT).

Kardinal Offishall is making a little comeback (after ruining the career of Texas with his rap on Carnival Girl). He recorded 2 versions of his song ‘Tide is High’. One features Rihanna, the other the Pussycat Dolls. Neither version does this Blondie classic justice (they are essentially the same, i.e. terrible). [Rap Up]

New Kids On The Block will be signing their new album ‘The Block’ at HMV’s Oxford Street Store (London) on September 8. [London Paper].

New Kids On The Block ft. Lady Gaga

Think back to yesterday – remember yesterday? Seems a lifetime ago, doesn’t it. Anyway, we were slagging off NKOTB a bit, and yet today we’re feeling more positive about them. Such is the nature of being a Pop Slag.

The glimmer of hope? Our beloved Lady Gaga, of course! She’s previously spoken about working with the group, and how doing so fulfilled a childhood dream for her.  The track has of course leaked, and let’s just say NKOTB should be the ones thanking her, if you please.

In typical Gaga/RedOne style, ‘Big Girl Now’ is more ‘saucy club-banger’ than ‘yawnsome credit-crunch soundtracker’, with lyrics concerning how - oh yes - this little girl has grown up.

We can totally imagine a little Lady Gaga with NKOTB posters on the wall singing along to their songs. Well now she can have SEX with them, the filthy bitch.

We’re still not convinced if the r&b / dance route is right for the dad, sorry, boyband NKOTB, but then again, if Madonna, Kylie and Cher can sell dance records in their forties, we should perhaps give them the benefit of the doubt.

What do you think?

The buzz around NKOTB’s comeback has been building for a while now. As is customary these days, one of their new tracks - a RedOne /Akon collaboration - has found its way on to the internet.

If you were hoping for some reflective, wise lyrics and sensible acoustic guitars (a la Take That), well - keep moving, people, nothing to see here.

These wrong-side-of -30 ‘kids’ have opted for bog-standard R&B with words about buying cocktails for girls. Imagine your dad having a mid-life crisis and recording it.

Here's New Kids On The Block's 'Put It On My Tab'

What do you think of their new material?

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.

»   Lady Gaga: Just Dance

»   Kat DeLuna: Calling You

Not so excellent

Sod the NKOTB reunion, how stupendous was this song?  And he’s fit.  They should just re-release this!  *WAPS has a little dance*

Danny Wood
Imagine that face bearing down on you in a moment of passion ladies! Phwoar, eh?
Danny Wood (the world’s most handsome man) shattered the dreams of literally tens of women in their early thirties this week when he announced that the NKOTB reunion rumour was just that – a rumour.  He did say, however, that he’d have some solo material out soon. In, um, Australia. (What the hell did the Aussies ever do to deserve that?) Anyway that was probably a fiendishly clever ploy or something because the NKOTB website is up and running with – oh God – new material.  They will surely take over the world just like when 5ive went Nu Metal last year and then split up instantly when they realised absolutely no one gave a flying fuck.
