How much musicians' are making from the most famous Christmas songs revealed

When you're thumping your own leg and cussing out loud to the 50th time you've heard 'Last Christmas' on an average November day, have you ever wondered how much money those artists are making? Well, a new post by NME has collected all the information about the songs so you don't have to wonder a moment longer!

So check out the Wham, Slade and Cliff Richard superslam of artists below, you know you want to.

Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody' - Otherwise known as Noddy's finest hour, this track is said to earn the Black Country group around £512,000 per year. Holy shit. HOLY SHIT.

The Pogues' 'Fairytale of New York' - Shane McGowan and co are probably feeling even greener than usual every Christmas, as their hit is said to rake in £386,000 a year.

Wham's 'Last Christmas' - The pure essence of the 80s and Christmas melded into one, this earns the group £300,000 per year.

Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas' - A personal irritant, this ditty from Carey earns her an annual wedge of £376,000 - Scrooge was right, this whole sham is about money. Humbug.
