Every year, people talk about the battle for the Christmas No. 1 single in the UK. I don’t know why they do it, but it is a tradition. This year, the battle was between Justin Bieber with Love Yourslef and the NHS Choir with A Bridge Over You. I am delighted to say that the NHS Choir won. So here is my review of the 2015 Christmas No. 1.
This medley of Fix You by Coldplay and the Simon and Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water is really heartfelt. The NHS has been through some turmoil lately and the video for this song shows how vital it is to life in the UK. The song is also very sweet and done very sincerely. The medley is well constructed and isn’t just one song after the other. The choir sound very good and the harmonies work for the message they are trying to put forward. Yes, it is a bit sentimental. but it’s Christmas. What more do you want?
I’m so glad that this is the 2015 Christmas No. 1. It’s nice to have something completely off the wall topping the charts and with a really supportive message.
