Top 7 Christmas Songs To Spice Up Your Day

Tomorrow is Christmas and nothing gladdens the heart like good music. A good Christmas song can melt the heart of even the steeliest Grinch, from hardened hipster to grumpy grandpa. The top Christmas songs help make the holidays one of the most wonderful times of year. To provide a little extra thump for your holidays, here are our Top 7 Christmas Songs:

7. ‘Christmas in Harlem’ – Kanye West featuring Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Vado, Cyhi Da Prynce & Pusha T

This good music Christmas posse track serves up just about everything you’d expect from Kanye and Ko. Ye raps about unwrapping (removing the knickers from) his Christmas present, Jim Jones proposes we party till dawn and Big Sean says… well, not much at all. But with a slick soul-sampling beat from Hit Boy and bags of braggadocious charm, this is a head-bobbing holiday treat.

6. ‘8 Days of Christmas’ – Destiny’s Child

With an injection of sass and unabashed materialism, Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle turned a cosy old holiday favourite into a bumping R&B Christmas carol for our times. A fine achievement.

5. ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – Mariah Carey

Mariah song is one of the greatest festive songs for one good reason – it’s catchier than a Christmas cold. Originally released in 1994, this selfless plea to be with a loved one has everything: sleigh bells, pop hooks, the right balance of schmaltz and soul, and uplifting vibes strong enough to launch a jump-jet. It’s also featured on Justin Bieber’s Under the Mistletoe, reinvented as a duet.

The acid test of a great Christmas song is whether you get bored of it, and this one, we’re sure, is for life.

4. White Christmas –  Irving Berlin
If you’re going to name the one Christmas song that nobody ever has gotten sick of, it might as well be the number one selling song of all-time. “White Christmas” has been covered by everyone from Bob Marley to Bette Midler, and Kenny Rogers to Taylor Swift. While it is hard to live up to the inimitable Bing Crosby, this harmonious rendition by the famous Australian Motown cover band Human Nature does justice to Bing, capturing the aching and beautiful sentiment of the song — and in doing so fully realizes the combination of joy and memory that makes Christmas what it is.

3. This Life – Shane Dawson

This is the one best Christmas Song out there! This one is way better the Maybe this Christmas. This song is so upbeat and kid friendly, everyone in the family will enjoy this song the lyrics are meaningful. It is awesome, uplifting, & super catchy. Shane sounds wonderful, great song for the Holiday Season!

2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas-Sam Smith

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” sung by Sam Smith was released in 2015. The original was sung by Judy Garland in 1944. He’s rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”  is not like others because the only instrument complementing Sam Smith is a piano. Sam Smith has a soulful voice that will make you smile while listening to this song.

1. Under the Mistletoe by Justin Bieber

Justin’s new Christmas album is mix of old and new songs, with a few special guest stars that may surprise you (like Busta Rhymes rapping with the Biebz on Drummer Boy) but it’s the new songs that really stand out, just check out the title track, it’s a holiday love song you’ll definitely want to play for your shorty.

Hope you enjoy the top 10 Christmas songs that I have selected for this Holiday season that will put you in a festive spirit when you’re in the car, at your house, or at a holiday party.
