As they came out of the Cardiff version of the 'Magic Bag' 64 :)

I did think when I drew my own nomination against Bally's Greg Lake I was onto a loser with the likely votes here :(

(Slade v DL a difficult choice, as the Spector Xmas album is without question the best christmas album ever. However, Noddy reminds me of childhood Xmas's in the 70's)

Mrs 64's bag is no better mate, it uncanny how so many good songs are drawn together :( in the last round she managed to pull out many of the jokers playing each other

Agree the Wizard song looked doomed once drawn against the Greg Lake xmas goodie
