Time to take another sneaky peak at some 2005 UK Christmas Number One contenders. Take a look, and place a bet. Then in 2010, when the 2005 Christmas Number One makes you nauseous, you can at least console yourself by remembering that you won a few quid on it.
Coldplay - Coldplay are releasing Talk on December 19th. There are plus points to this announcement - it’s released one week before Christmas so it’ll reach it’s peak position (potentially Christmas Number One) on Christmas day; and also, the song is - surprising - OK. For a Coldplay song. However - so many people already own the Coldplay album that there isn’t a single person in the country who is anticipating the release of Talk - certainly not enough to make it the Christmas Number One. And, although Coldplay are big, they’re no Brenda/Andy/Journey South/Shayne off X Factor, are they? Current Christmas Number One odds - 40/1
