My Top 5 Favorite Christmas Songs

It’s that time of year again (the most wonderful time of year, according to some people) where you hear Christmas music just about everywhere you go. This drives some people crazy, but I enjoy it. Christmas music holds a special place in my heart, and I have a few favorites I’ll list here.

5. “Every Year, Every Christmas” by Luther Vandross

This song is actually very sad because Vandross is singing about a lost love. The song is sung so beautifully that you almost forget what it’s about.  You can find this song and others on Vandross’ Christmas CD, which is available in our catalog.

4. “This Christmas” by Chris Brown

While nothing compares to the original, I really enjoy Chris Brown’s version of this Christmas classic. He put his own modern twist to the song. The song is on the soundtrack for the movie with the same name; you can download it on Freegal.

3. “Last Christmas” by Wham!

I know! I know! Everything about this song is cheesy, from the music video, to the lyrics, to the single cover, but I don’t care! I love this song. I look forward to Wish 99.7 playing it a million times during the holiday season. I also have it on my iPod, and I’m not ashamed to admit, that either. This song is for everyone who has gotten their heart broken during the holiday season, and it’s also available to download via Freegal.

2. “Let It Snow” by Boyz II Men featuring Brian McKnight

Mixing Brian McKnight and Boyz II Men results in harmonic gold on this tune! This song makes you want to cuddle up by a fireplace with that special someone (or in my case makes me wish that I had a special someone). This song can be found on their Christmas CD, Christmas Interpretations, which also features their wonderful rendition of “Silent Night.”

1. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey

When the holiday season arrives this is my go-to song to play. If I went out to karaoke during the holiday season this is the song that I would sing. Now if I would hit that high note toward the end is a different story. This is another one of those songs that can make you think of that special someone. It’s very cute and fun. This song is featured on Carey’s wonderful album, Merry Christmas.

Now let’s hear about some of your favorites! Tell us in the comments below. Happy holidays!

  1. Actually, that Wham video of the group of friends in a mountain chalet sounds like my perfect way of spending Christmas. Once upon a time, I did get to enjoy one or two such holidays.

  2. Need some Michael Buble in there like It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – I’ve done a post of my favourites too :) Wham and Mariah Carey are some cult classics which you can’t go wrong with – I love them :)

  3. I personally like “Winter Wonderland”, “Carol of the Bells”, and “Fairytale of New York”.

    I must hear the hippopotamus song at least once each year (I want a hippopotamus for Christmas). For mellow, I love Nat King Cole’s Little Christmas Tree…So sweet!

    Long live Christmas songs! My personal favorites are “Silent Night” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” — but for the past few days I’ve had that country Christmas song stuck in my head; the one about how he “sure does like Christmas cookies.” It’s funny. :)
