This post is all about my favourite Christmas songs. I’ve chosen 10! They’re a mixture of old and new ones. Let’s see if we share any favourite festive songs!
Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
A pop classic in the Christmas world. I first heard this in Love, Actually, and I listen to it every year around Christmas.
Straight No Chaser ft. Kirsten Bell – Text Me Merry Christmas
I can’t remember how I came across this song, but I still absolutely love it! It’s such a cute, cheeky play on ‘modern communication’.
Wham! – Last Christmas
Another classic. How can you not love this ballad? It’s irresistible to sing along to! always sing along to it as loud as possible.
Pentatonix – Dance of the SugarPlum Fairy
I had to include one Pentatonix Christmas cover. I love so many, but this is one of my favourites. I’ve always loved this song since forever, and since Pentatonix has covered it, it’s become another Christmas favourite.
The Royal Guardsman – Snoopy’s Christmas
An older song on the list. This has always been another Christmas song I can’t help singing along to. “Christmas bells, those Christmas bells. Ringing through the laaaaaaaaaand”.
The Killers – Don’t Shoot Me Santa
I still remember when this came out. I went off and bought the single CD of it. It’s a peppy sounding song, but it has a bit of black humour going through it. Always fun!
Alvin and the Chipmunks – Christmas Don’t Be Late
I go through a love/hate thing with this song. I go back and forth between it being cute and annoying. Right now, it’s back at cute!
Amanda and Matthias – Baby, It’s Cold Outside
I’ve listened to a lot of these songs, but I always like the more laidback versions. This cover is so cute, and the fact that it’s done by one of my favourite YouTube couples makes me love it even more.
Ariana Grande – Santa Tell Me
Another pop Christmas song! They’re catchy for a reason. Also, as a fan of Ariana Grande in general, this was going to wind up on the list.
Glee – Santa Baby
I actually like quite a few of the Glee Christmas covers. However, in terms of the Santa Baby song, I really love their version! It’s sung by Naya Riviera, who played Santana, and I love her voice.
Weird Al Yankovic – Christmas at Ground Zero
Ending it on the most ‘darkest’ Christmas song. I deliberated putting it on here, but I do listen to it. I’m a fan of Weird Al’s parodies, and when I came across this, I couldn’t stop laughing (while feeling a little bad). It’s very peppy and festive sounding, while the lyrics talk about a nuclear attack.
There you have it. 10 of my favourite Christmas songs!
