Top 10 Holiday Songs (Hailee’s Picks)

It’s officially December and we all know what that means! It’s time to break out the holiday decorations, decorate those cookies, and shop for gifts for our loved ones. What better way to do all of that then with a little bit of Holiday jingles!

While there are so many songs I want to list on this playlist I do have to show some restraint and will only be listing 10 songs. I do want to say a lot of these songs are the originals and do sound very old school.

Number One: A Holly Jolly Christmas By Burl Ives. This song is probably one of my favorites. It has been featured in many classic holiday movies which makes it easily recognizable. It’s upbeat and perfect for decorating the house for the holiday season.

Number Two: Last Christmas By Wham! Now this song has been covered by many people so if you don’t like the way this song sounds, no worries, just look up one of the many covers out there to fit your taste in music. This song is such a classic and I think everyone needs to have this on their holiday playlist.

Number Three: The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire) By Sammy Davis, Jr. This song is so amazing I don’t even think there are any words that will do it justice. The only thing I can say about this song, is that you have to have it on your holiday playlist.

Number Four: Frosty the Snowman By Jimmy Durante. This song is perfect for all ages, whether you’re hearing it for the first time or the hundredth, this song will always have a special place in our hearts. It brings back so many memories of building snowmen, or watching Frosty dance around on T.V..

Number Five: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer By Burl Ives. While we are on the topic of childhood memories, this song is one we all know the words to. It’s short, it’s sweet, and most of all has a wonderful message that no matter how different we are, we all have a purpose and are all special.

Number Six: Winter Wonderland By Bing Crosby. This is the perfect song for everyone, no matter which holiday you celebrate. This song is perfect for playing in the background of your holiday meal or opening presents!

Number Seven: Baby It’s Cold Outside By Dean Martin. Featured in the movie Elf and many others, this song is another one I think everyone knows the words to. It’s a great song for decorating the house or even going on a walk.

Number Eight: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas By Judy Garland. I personally adore Judy Garland which I suppose makes me a little biased, but there is no denying that this song is beautiful. Her voice makes everything feel calm and I think is also perfect for that holiday/Christmas feast.

Number Nine: Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town By Frank Sinatra. Another biased decision on my part because Mr. Sinatra was always a hero in my house because he was one of my grandfather’s favorite artists. This song is a must have on any holiday playlist.

Number Ten: Run Rudolph Run By Chuck Berry. This song is upbeat and great for any holiday occasion. You can dance, sing, and laugh to this song, which is what the holidays are all about.

I hope you enjoyed this playlist, and if you have Apple Music feel free to email me at [email protected] and I would be more than happy to share my holiday playlist with you!
