What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by listening to some Christmas tunes? So in this post I will be sharing my absolute festive favourites with you guys, and tell you why I love them so much! Also, I compiled them in a handy-dandy playlist for you guys, in case you want to give them a listen.
1. Fairytale of New York by The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl
This is a song I remember from an old mix CD my parents used to play at Christmas time, so it’s mostly on here for nostalgic reasons.
2. All I Want For Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
No holiday playlist is complete without a bit of Mariah Carey. It’s a classic. What more can I say?
3. Last Christmas by Wham!
Same as the previous track. This song is an absolute classic and I can’t not listen to this during December (or November for that matter).
4. Twelve Pains of Christmas by Bob Rivers
This is another one of those songs that give me nostalgic vibes. My parents had very interesting mix CD’s haha.
5. Christmas by Michael Bublé
Michael Bublé’s entire Christmas album is my JAM! I have been listening to it for about two months straight now… No regrets.
6. Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass by All Time Low
Not really a traditional Christmas song, but I still love listening to it during the festive season.
7. Do They Know It’s Christmas? By Band Aid 30 / 1984
I love both the original version of this song as well as the 2014 re-make. But the one that I listen to most is the 2014 version (it has One Direction and Ed Sheehan, can you blame me?).
8. Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens
Last but not least, I feel like this is also a bit of a classic. It gives just enough Christmas feels.
I am gonna keep it at 8 songs (or really 7 songs and an entire album…). I’ll just put them on repeat this season until everyone around me gets sick of it. And then I’ll still continue.
What other Christmas tunes should be on my playlist? Let me know!
Lots of Love,
