Smooth Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 6am - 10am
10 December 2018, 10:58
Anyone who has seen the Hugh Grant movie About a Boy will know that you could probably live comfortably if you - or even just a relative - wrote a huge Christmas song back in the day.
As Christmas favourites get played over and over again every single December, the royalties add up. But just how much do certain songs make every single year?
The estimated figures for the 10 biggest Christmas hits from yesteryear are quite staggering.
(Note: these figures were accurate as of 2015, so some may be even higher by now.)
We have to say, we're just amazed that Wizzard's 'I Wish It Could be Christmas Everyday' didn't make the top 10!
Note to self: Write a Christmas song, pronto.
