I have to confess that I am one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music November 1. I can’t help it-the music just puts me in a good mood and brings back so many nostalgic feelings. Today’s Blogmas post is the top ten Christmas songs on my playlist each year.
10. The Chipmunk Song-The Chipmunks
Forever a favorite from childhood!
9. Christmas Vacation-Mavis Staples
This movie just reminds me of the Griswold family Christmas and makes me feel better about my life during the holiday season!
8. You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch-Thurl Ravenscroft
Back before on-demand and Netflix, I had to wait until Cartoon Network showed this cartoon to enjoy this glorious song. Everyone knows a Grinch at Christmas time.
7. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays-*NSYNC
A few years ago, someone made fun of me for calling this a Christmas classic, but considering the song came out 20 years ago now, I consider this a classic.
6. It’s Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas-Johnny Mathis
5. A Holly Jolly Christmas-Burl Ives
4. Maybe This Christmas-Ron Sexsmith
Unless you watch The OC and listened to the soundtracks, you probably missed this song.
3. O Holy Night-Mariah Carey
One of my favorite versions of my favorite song that reminds me of the reason for the Christmas season.
2. All I Want For Christmas Is You-Mariah Carey
Let’s be honest-Mariah’s Christmas album is a staple at Christmas time. I love the entire album.
1. Christmas Eve/Sarajevo-Transiberian Orchestra
My all time favorite version of my all time favorite Christmas song. I dance like a crazy woman whenever it comes on!
