Everyone loves a good Christmas song. We’re not talking about the carols (though we love those too!) Most are classics that are bound to take you back to your childhood, when fairy lights were magical, and Santa was really coming. So as we raise our eggnogs in toast, here’s some of our favorites to take that trip down memory lane.
1. All I Want For Christmas (Is You) by Mariah Carey
Believe it or not, this song has made it to the #1 spot on the Billboards this week, a whopping 25 years after its release! Talk about a blast from the past!!
2. Last Christmas by Wham!
This song is so closely associated with this time of the year that people around the world have been making drinking games and whatnot over it for years. Take a shot every time you hear this song!
3. The Christmas Song by Andrea Bocelli and Natalie Cole
The song was one of the most memorable by Mr. Cole, and this rendition by his daughter and Andrea is absolutely beautiful.
4. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Michael Buble
Our generation needed a Sinatra type vocalist too, and Michael graciously stepped in, and thank the universe for that! This oldie but goldie needs to be heard in a voice that drips in old-world charm, and this one sure hits the right spot.
5. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Bruce Springsteen
The quintessential Christmas tune, but in the most unexpected voice. Bruce gives a brand new twist to Santa’s song. Extra points for the hats.
And one extra, for all the mean girls out there, because we just couldn’t resist.
