If you’re anything like me, the moment it turns December 1, I break out my Christmas decorations and have Christmas music on religiously. After all, there’s nothing like some great Christmas music to get you in the holiday spirit!
Whether it’s some of the classics like “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” or “A Holly Jolly Christmas” to some more modern tunes like “Underneath the Tree” or the iconic hits like “All I Want For Christmas Is You” or “Last Christmas,” there’s an endless collection of amazing Christmas songs that make it hard not to feel jolly.
With that said, here are 10 of my favorite Christmas songs:
1. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey
The class of every Christmas music. Try to find a more festive, catchy song than this. I dare you.
2. “Last Christmas” by Wham!
This one certainly comes close to topping “All I Want For Christmas Is You” with its infectious melody, another holiday favorite.
3. “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson
The perfect blend of bopping melody and Kelly Clarkson’s voice, “Underneath the Tree” is a modern hit.
4. “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” by Michael Buble
Michael Buble does a great job of bringing a modern feel to a beloved classic without putting too much of an original spin on it. After all, it’s a classic for a reason.
5. “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee
This song brings me back to my childhood, and it’s by and far Brenda Lee’s most sensational hit that remains a staple of Christmas music.
6. “Little Saint Nick” by The Beach Boys
This melody mixed with the classic Beach Boys vibe is everything in this Christmas bop.
7. “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” by Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
I’d like to thank the music gods for giving us Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and this adorable, catchy, modern Christmas tune.
8. “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms
Another classic that reminds me of my childhood, “Jingle Bell Rock” is one of those catchy songs you can’t help but sing along to.
9. “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” by Andy Williams
When it comes to songs made to put a smile on your face, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” ranks near the top.
10. “A Holly Jolly Christmas” by Burl Ives
Another “put a smile on your face” classic, this song is guaranteed to have you feeling holly and jolly as its name entails.
