here, the Dutch top40 chart celebrated its 50th birthday in January this year. When I posted about that event, I included my top50 songs that made the top40 chart in the past. I was intrigued how few of my favourite songs actually made the #1 position, so the rest of the year I have posted my countdown of fifty favourite #1 hits, reaching #1 last Saturday. As a bonus, and to conclude this year-long exercise, here we have the best Dutch #1 Christmas hit to my taste: Mud's Lonely this Christmas. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
