Christmas songs. They’re everywhere, we can’t escape them. And where I used to work (retail) I had to listen to them day in, day out for the month of December. Not that I minded too much – I actually LOVE Christmas songs! As I have written about my favourite Christmas films, I thought I would give a run down of some of my favourites.
O’ Holy Night
There have been a lot of versions of this song over the years, but my favourite is the Josh Groban (2002) version. I heard it in the background of a Vampire Diaries episode and have loved it ever since.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
This is my absolute favourite song this time of year! Again, there have been so many covers of this song over the years, but I think I have to say my favourite is the Michael Bolton (2001) version. One cover of this song I cannot stand is the Sam Smith version. No offence to them, but they kind of ruin it for me!
Santa tell me
Onto a fairly more recent Christmas song now, and it’s the Arianna Grande (2014) Santa tell me! I really love this song – it’s such a feel good tune!
Not tonight Santa
This for me is a classic childhood song by Girls Aloud (2006). It came out when I was in my last year at primary school, and it’s one of those songs I just love listening to having a bit of a dance to when no-ones looking!
Happy X-mas (war is over)
A very traditional song by John Lennon (1971), and it never feels like Christmas until I’ve heard it.
Whilst I love the original version of this song, I have a very soft spot in my heart for the Glee (2011) cover. It’s performed by 2 of my favourite characters, and is the perfect song to prance around the house to!
Step into Christmas
Another classic that everyone loves to sing along to, Step into Christmas by Elton John (1973). It really does get you in the Christmas spirit!
Sleighing in the snow
This song by The Vamps (2014) I feel like not many people have actually heard. It’s a lovely song all about being with someone you love at Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
I am a massive fan of Bon Jovi, so of course I love this song! Like the majority of his songs, this came out (1992) before I was born, but it remains to be one of my favourite songs this time of year.
What are your favourite Christmas songs?
Until next time.
