(Can you tell I'm excited?)
So, to get you in the mood for Christmas, here's my sixteen favorite Christmas songs!
1. O Holy Night by Il Divo
I love this version the best simply because Il Divo is so fantastic and it's beautiful. Plus, they're pretty fun to look at.
2. Merry Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon
Yes, I am a Lennon fan. Yes, I know this was a publicity stunt. It's still my favorite.
3. Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney
Does this even need an explanation? I've concluded that it doesn't.
4. Baby, It's Cold Outside by Bing Crosby and Doris Day
This song is so classic, how can I not include it?! Plus, Christmas isn't Christmas without Bing Crosby!
5. Fairytale of New York by The Pogues
Okay, so this is half Christmas song, half 'what am I listening to' but it is definitely one of my favorites! Don't judge me.
6. Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid 1984
This is such an important song even after all these years!
7. Last Christmas by Wham!
What's better than Wham? Wham at Christmas!
8. Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry
To me, this song is a must! I think of Home Alone every time I hear this song and it's tradition to watch that movie in our house!
9. Mary, Did You Know? by Pentatonix
If you haven't heard this, you're missing out. I love this song regardless, but this version is amazing.
Also, this version. Because holy impressive.
10. Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
Not only is this song what everyone wants for Christmas, it's super sensual without being creepy. I mean, who doesn't want a yacht?
11. I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas by The Drifters
This is a cute song as it is, but this version is so much fun!
12. Merry Christmas, Darling by The Carpenters
I think I'm just partial to this song because I've sang it, but it's just so perfect.
13. Christmas Eve/Sarajevo by Trans Siberian Orchestra
It's just not Christmas without TSO. If you think it is, YOU'RE WRONG.
14. Carol of the Bells
I pretty much like any version of this song. Seriously. Any version.
15. You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft
Fun Fact: Thurl Ravenscroft was also the voice behind Tony the Tiger!
16. All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
Did you think you would get through a list of Christmas songs without this classic? YOU WERE WRONG!
So from me to you,
