I want to start out by saying that Christmas is not my favorite holiday. That title goes to Halloween indefinitely. But, I do enjoy Christmastime a lot. I especially love listening to Christmas music, and it’s been on my radio nonstop since starting the Friday before Thanksgiving. Crazy? I don’t care. I love it!
So I wanted to do a quick post featuring my Christmas playlist, the songs that I’m obsessively listening to right now. I did a music playlist for Halloween, so I thought it would be fun to do for Christmas! So, I obviously have my favorite go-to songs, but there are specific versions that I love the most. There are some classics that never get old, and there are also some new ones that I just can’t shake. Check out my list below and click the links to have a listen!
My Christmas Playlist
- Baby It’s Cold Outside: I have two favorite versions of this song. The first features Idina Menzel and Michale Buble. The second features Brett Eldridge and Meghan Trainor. Both are equally fun and amazing!
- Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
- Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys
- All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
- You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft: I have the whole original Grinch Christmas Special on Vinyl, and I listen to it every year around this time!
- Christmas Eve in Sarajevo by Trans-Siberian Orchestra: I pretty much love everything by Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but this song is my favorite!
- What Christmas Means to Me by Hanson: What kind of ’90s kid would I be if I didn’t include a song from the Hanson Christmas Album?! The entire album is utter Christmas perfection!
- Santa Baby by Colbie Caillat
- Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry
- Christmastime Is Here from A Charlie Brown Christmas
I literally can’t stop listening to these songs, and many others, on repeat! I play them in the car while I’m driving and even when I’m at home just hanging out or cleaning! They will never get old to me, and they definitely have helped get me in the holiday spirit. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season this year!!
