A few weeks ago I set myself a daunting challenge: to work out the 10 best Christmas movie soundtracks of all time for Den of Geek. Along the way, I discovered that I had a huge soft spot for Love Actually's soundtrack. More a compilation of pop songs than actual Christmas compositions, it's an album that guarantees to put me in a seasonal mood.
But it's not just Richard Curtis' cheesy jukebox that has become a firm festive favourite. It turns out that the noughties had quite a few good Christmas movie soundracks. The best of all? Not Elf's jazzy medley of carols, but Alan Silvestri's score for The Polar Express. So if you share my love of Bill Nighy stripping, Zooey Deschanel singing or Tom Hanks struggling to come up with words that rhyme with "express", here's our final Advent Calendar playlist.
