'Two Little Boys'

Last night's programme on Christmas Number Ones had some glaring omissions, not a mention of Dave Edmunds' classic 'I Hear You Knocking' (1970) , Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (TWICE - 1975 & 1991), Wings' 'Mull of Kintyre' (1977), The Flying Pickets' 'Only You' (1983), Jackie Wilson's 'Reet Petite' (1986), The Pet Shop Boys 'Always On My Mind' (1987), Michael Jackson's dire 'Earth Song' (1995) or Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman's 'Something Stupid' (2001).

However the programme did a little piece on Rolf Harris's 1969 Christmas Number One - 'Two Little Boys' - Ah the memories...

And from 1980 here's Splodgenessabounds' cover version, apologies for the Jimmy Saville intro - he just couldn't hide it, could he?
