15 Christmas Songs That NEVER Get Old

It's officially the holiday season and if you're like me, you LOVE listening to music. Here're some of my favorite Christmas songs both classic and newer.

“Last Christmas” - WHAM! / Cover by Glee Cast

Ever since I heard this song back in 5th grade, I've loved it, making it my FAVORITE Christmas song.

Favorite lyrics: "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. But the very next day you gave it away. This year, to save me from tears. I'll give it to someone special."

“This Christmas” - Donny Hathaway

This song isn't like the typical sleigh ride, mistletoe song.

Favorite lyrics: "And this Christmas, will be a very special Christmas, for me."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj1mVUEHeUE

“All Alone on Christmas” - Darlene Love

I LOVE this song, despite it being a song about being alone on the holiday. From the lyrics, to the beat, to Darlene Love's voice, I listen to it all holiday season.

Favorite lyrics: "I've got to know, Where do lonely hearts go, Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbNFVSRET2c

“I’ll Be Home” - Meghan Trainor

I heard this song a few years ago on a Spotify Christmas playlist, and I sing the chorus at the top of my lungs because it's just that good.

Favorite lyrics: "I promise, I promise I'll be home. Home, I'll be home

“Feliz Navidad” - Jose Feliciano

This song is a CLASSIC, that my brother would appreciate because he has loved this song for years. Not to mention it's so freaking catchy!

Favorite lyrics: "I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart."

All of Pentatonix’s Songs

They make instrument noises with their voices, kudos to them!!

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" - Burl Ives

Rudolph has always been one of my favorite childhood Christmas movies, besides Frosty the Snowman, both tell such cute stories both through the movies and the songs.

Favorite lyrics: "Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXlU2uL1e3Y

“Step Into Christmas” - Elton John

I first heard this song on 98.1 WOGL and since then, I make sure to listen to it every Christmas season.

Favorite lyrics: "Step into Christmas, let's join together. We can watch the snow fall forever and ever. Eat, drink and be merry, come along with me. Step into Christmas, the admission's free.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Tc_VAb4HE

“Mistletoe" - Justin Bieber

I may not be the biggest JB fan, but this song could melt any girl's heart.

Favorite lyrics: "It's the most beautiful time of the year. Lights fill the streets, spreadin' so much cheer."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUjn3RpkcKY

“Santa Tell Me” - Ariana Grande

I'm not an Ariana Grande fan either, but her voice is like no other especially singing Christmas songs so I just had to include her.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa tell me if you're really there. Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here next year. Santa tell me if he really cares 'cause I can give it all away if he won't be here next year."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlR0MkrRklg

“Jingle Bell Rock” - Bobby Helms

I'll never forget, my grandfather bought my brothers and me a dancing Santa that shakes his hips to this song, we call him "Shaking Butt Santa."

Favorite lyrics: "What a bright time, it's the right time, to rock the night away. Jingle bell time is a swell time, to go gliding in a one-horse sleigh."

“Dominick the Donkey” - Lou Monte

Every day during December of my senior year in high school, 98.1 WOGL would play this song at exactly 7:00 a.m. At that time I would be driving myself and my younger brother to school and I sang along to every word in the car.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa's got a little friend, his name is Dominick, the cutest little donkey, you never see him kick"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca5wXojemRM

“Do They Know It’s Christmas” - Band Aid

There's no particular reason that this is one of my favorites other than I like the lyrics.

Favorite lyrics: "Throw your arms around the world, at Christmas time."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RGz3vdJg00

“Winter Wonderland” - Michael Buble

Any song he sings sounds so calming, yes even Christmas songs!

Favorite lyrics: "A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIKt5p3UmXg

“White Christmas/Blue Christmas” - Elvis Presley

Elvis may be the king of rock and roll, but his Christmas album screams king of Christmas with his dreamy voice.

Favorite lyrics: "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen, to hear sleigh bells in the snow"

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
