The most streamed Christmas No.1 has been revealed!

When it comes to Christmas songs and Christmas number ones, what do you think the most streamed Christmas number one is?

Well - plot twist - it's not actually a Christmas song!  (For shame!)

Ed Sheeran's song Perfect has been revealed as the most streamed Christmas No. 1 song, beating yuletide classics like Merry Christmas Everyone from Shakin' Stevens and Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas.

Mariah Carey didn't even get a look in!

Steve Wright, whose BBC radio show will count down the songs lining up to make Christmas No. 1 told The Times, "It's a brilliant song, but I was sure Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody would take the title".

So what are the most streamed Christmas No.1s? Here's what made the Top 5:

No.1 Perfect by Ed Sheeran

No. 2 Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

No. 3 Rockabye by Clean Bandit

No. 4 Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin

No. 5 Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid

So there you have it! The top 3 aren't even Christmas songs! It makes us wonder what the list would look like if streaming and Spotify were a thing 30-40 years ago 🤔
