New Hits Friday: 21st December 2018

It’s the Christmas chart!  The most exciting chart of the year…although I have to say I was a little underwhelmed today.

Ariana Grande – Imagine

A pretty generic offering.  Still, at least it’s not a cover of the John Lennon song, like I’d feared!

There’s no video for this yet.

LadBaby – We Built This City On Sausage Rolls

This is the official 2018 Christmas number one, and urgh.  It’s a terrible parody cover of the Starship classic.  It would be okay if it were actually funny.  I know it’s for charity and everything, but I really thought after the last couple of years that we’d escaped the horrible twenty-year trend of novelty songs and covers being Christmas number one.

The video is just as awful as the song.

Oh well, there’s always next year.
