After nearly 50 years of chart hits, Sir Cliff Richard lands his biggest hit in a number of years debuting at #2 with his seasonal tune "21st Century Christmas." Gwen Stefani's "Wind It Up" has become her biggest hit single yet in the UK. It climbs to #3, one notch higher than "What You Waiting For" and "Rich Girl." Unsurprisingly, Crazy Frog has returned for the holidays. This time it's with a version of Wham's classic "Last Christmas."
