It may have narrowly missed out on the 1987 Christmas number one spot but The Pogues' iconic festive hit Fairytale of New York is far from a failure.
In fact it's the second highest earning Christmas track when it comes to royalties, meaning The Pogues rake in around £400,000 every year in estimated royalties from the classic hit.
But according to The Mirror, the top earners are Noddy Holder and Jim Lea from Slade, whose 1973 song Merry Xmas Everybody brings them in £500,00 a year.
Mariah Carey, aka The Queen of Christmas, will reportedly earn herself £376,000 each year from All I Want For Christmas Is You.
And Wham!’s Last Christmas has earned George Michael, who wrote and produced the song, over £470,000 according to the estimates on PrezzyBox's Christmas Royalty Calculator.
