Carleigh Bush

With December just around the corner, you may be looking for festive songs to add to your favorite playlist. Look no further! In this article, I am going to tell you my top 10 Christmas songs so I can help you organize a Christmas playlist. A lot of the songs are Christmas classics, but maybe some you have never heard of.

1. All I Want For Christmas Is You (Mariah Carey) 

  • This song is a Christmas classic and you can play it in any setting you would like! It can be romantic but also can just be a song you play at a Christmas party. I put this first because I hear it the most and I enjoy it every time. 

2. Jingle Bells (James Pierpont)

  • This is another Christmas classic that you just have to play at your every yearly Christmas party. This song is also great for children to listen to around the holiday season to get into the spirit. 

3. Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer (Johnny Marks)

  • Even though this song could be considered a kids song, it is still a great song for adults as well. This song could bring you back to your childhood and fill you with great memories from the past. 

4. Santa Tell Me (Ariana Grande)

  • While this song is a Christmas song, it also gives us that classic relationship/breakup song. This song could also be relatable and that would just be another reason for people to listen to​​ this song. This isn’t your usual slow Christmas song as it has a mix of pop and slow melodies.

5. Jingle Bell Rock (Bobby Helms)

  • This is a popish re-mix on the classic song Jingle Bells. Some people may not listen to the original because it is more kid-like. With this version, people of all ages and music styles can listen and enjoy the classic song. 

6. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (Frank Sinatra, B. Swanson Quartet) 

  • This is a very old Christmas song that people even nowadays enjoy. This is a more classic sounding song so it is not for everyone but a lot of people really enjoy it. It also gives us a Christmas that is also kind of a love song so people may relate to it. 

7. Christmas Song (Nat King Cole)

  • This song also has a very classic sounding singer but it is still a great song. If you like slow meaningful Christmas songs, this song is definitely for you. Just listening to the song you can tell that the lyrics have really good meanings behind them: “Although it’s been said many times many ways, Merry Christmas to you.”

8. Rockin’ Around The Christmas tree (Brenda Lee)

  • Everyone needs an up-beat Christmas song every once in a while to spice up their Christmas cheer, and this is a perfect song for that. In the song they talk about Christmas traditions such as mistletoe and people dancing in celebration of the holiday.

9. Last Christmas (Wham!)

  • This is a classic Christmas breakup song with a very slow tempo. Having a breakup song every once in a while never hurt anyone, and personally i think this song is the perfect one to add to your Christmas playlist. Even though this song could be sad for some people, it is still a great song.

10. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Michael Bublé) 

  • This song could be related to many things like family, friends, and relationships. The song states things like “Your troubles will be miles away.” Having a positive attitude in a song can really lift people’s spirits. I think it is really important to have a motivational song on your playlist around the holidays.
