---in 1974.
Westlife-- (p.s.,--don't tell Addilynn!) --had a Christmas Number 1 with Seasons In The Sun, in 1999.
The song was originally written by the Belgian songwriter/singer Jacques Brel, with lyrics added by the Canadian lyricist, Rod McKuen.

"London Calling" by The Clash from 1979 as it captures perfectly the English post-punk music scene and the zeitgeist of the late 70s.
