on where you live in the world, getting into the Christmas mood might
be a challenge. Most of us associate Christmas with decorations,
shopping, gifts, family reunions and most of all – snow. But what
if it’s not snowing where you are right now? What if you can’t
make it home for the holidays or you’re just not in a position to
afford Christmas shopping or lots of Christmas decorations? There’s
still a way to get into the Christmas spirit – and music is the
best way to do it. Sometimes putting on a good Christmas music
playlist is all you need to feel the magic of the festive season and
here are some suggestions from us.
Must-Have Christmas Playlist
It’s really hard to pick just a few Christmas songs and say they’re the best because there are so many good ones out there. But we tried our best. So here are some that are a must on your Christmas music playlist
Buble – It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
we know it’s originally by Johnny Mathis, but it’s Michael Buble
time now. There are memes all over the internet about Michael Buble
emerging from his cave every Christmas and we like it that way. Plus
this one has to be the first song. Cause it’s all about the start
of the season.
– Last Christmas
mean, you really can’t have a Christmas playlist and not include
this 80s hit. It’s borderline illegal to exclude this. Last
Christmas must be played at least once, at every Christmas party,
Carrey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
is a modern classic for a number of reasons. It was first released in
1994 and it still remains one of the most popular Christmas songs.
And it always goes up in the charts at Christmas time.
Hall & John Oates – Jingle Bell Rock
is our favorite version of Jingle Bell Rock. It’s just so fun and
merry and groovy you can’t help but start dancing a little. But we
have nothing against the original Bobby Helms version. Does it also
make you think of Home Alone?
Pogues – Fairytale of New York
For a fun twist – add this to your Christmas playlist. It’s bound to make you giggle in certain moments and you know, it’s a classic in its own way at this point.
Classic Christmas Music
your idea of Christmas music is something classy – these tunes
should definitely be right up your alley. It doesn’t get classier
Crosby – White Christmas
you know that this classic Christmas song was named the best selling
single of all time according to the Guinness World Records?
Garland – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
another classic and while we’re at it, you might enjoy rewatching
Meet Me in St. Louis, which was the whole reason behind Judy Garland
recording this song for the first time.
King Cole – The Christmas Song
are you know this song as that one Christmas song that goes
“chestnuts roasting on an open fire”, but few people know that
it’s actually called The Christmas Song.
Martin – Let It Snow
of you might think this is a song by Frank Sinatra, but in fact, it
was Dean Martin who sang it first. It has since been re-recorded by
many other singers. The funny thing is that originally it was written
in the summer of 1945 by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne
in Hollywood in the middle of a heatwave. It doesn’t even mention
Christmas in the lyrics.
Lee – Rocking Around The Christmas Tree
such a popular Christmas song and you’ve probably beard it every
single year in movies and just walking around malls before Christmas,
but did you know that Brenda Lee recorded it when she was only 13
Christmas Music For Kids
just need songs that sound fun and have a fun character or a fun
activity in it to like them. So you know, snowmen, reindeer, bells,
sleighs and the lot should do the job.
The Red-Nosed Reindeer
might have trouble naming all of Santa’s reindeer, but everyone
remembers Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. The lyrics might be a bit
questionable when you think about them, but hey, you can also
interpret it as an example of how being different can be an
a song most of us have known from childhood and it’ll probably be
one of the first Christmas songs your child will get to know too. All
together now “That’s Frosty the Snowman he’s a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.”
and simple lyrics, a fun adventure in a one-horse open sleigh, what
kid wouldn’t want to be part of that? Plus it’s possibly the most
recognised Christmas song out there. In fact, it was the first song
to be played in outer space according to the Smithsonian.
if your kid doesn’t know the lyrics to the song they can still join
in and have fun singing the fa-la-la-la-la la-la la-la part over and
over again. I still do that and I’m not even a kid.
Claus Is Coming To Town
an adult, it sounds creepy, but hey, it’s a great way to motivate
kids to behave before Christmas. Kids don’t get how weird it sounds
they just get excited about Santa Claus coming to town.
Traditional Christmas Music
you’re looking for traditional Christmas songs – look no further.
There’s nothing more traditional than Christmas Carols, right?
of the English speaking world knows this song as the Carol of the
Bells by John Williams. But actually, it was written by Ukrainian
composer Mykola Leontovych in 1914.
Twelve Days Of Christmas
really weird hearing that lit of gifts “a true love sent to me”
in 2019 because let’s be real, what would you possibly with all
those birds. Probably make vines – “look at all those chickens”.
you’re a fan of religious carols – Silent Night is a classic for
a reason. It’s all about the true meaning of Christmas – Christ
To The World
you want to feel truly joyous this carol will be perfect. Every note
of it is so full of joy it’s bursting at the seams. You can’t
listen to it and not feel uplifted.
Dong! Merrily on High
carol that will make you smile. If not because of the message in it
and the lovely Christmas music, we know you can’t sing the words
“ding dong” and not smile. It’s just funny.
