Best Christmas Songs

3929 days ago.

Charlie Brown I know everyone only remembers Hanson from MMMBop, but listen up! I’ve had the Pandora Christmas station on for about 3 weeks now and one day I was just listening and I was like “Wow, I love this song. Who sings this?” So I looked and BAM, there it was…Hanson. I was surprised myself but then I listened to more of their album, and it really is excellent! And it got me thinking, what other great Christmas songs don’t I know about?  So I polled my office and came up with a list based on my own favorites as well as some of the favorites I received from others that I am now also a fan of.

So without further ado, here are the Top 5 Christmas Songs and Albums. If you haven’t heard some of these before, I strongly urge you to listen before judging. (Oh, and these are in no particular order, except I’m not gonna lie, if I had to listen to only one of these albums for the rest of this Christmas, it would be Hanson).

Top 5 Christmas Albums:

Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton: Once Upon a Christmas

Best song from the album: “Christmas Without You”

Celine Dion: These Are Special Times

Best song from the album: “Don’t Save It All For Christmas Day”

SheDaisy: Brand New Year

Best song from the album: “That’s What I Want For Christmas”

Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas

Best song from the album: “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

Hanson: Snowed in

Best song from the album: “Merry Christmas Baby”


Top 5 Christmas Songs:

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey. Of course Mariah does it best, but I also love the performance done by Joanna in Love Actually:

“Santa Baby” originally by Eartha Kitt, but it’s also been covered by like every singer in the world including: Madonna, Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue, even a male version by Michael Buble, which is kind of cool. I actually really like the versions by LeAnn Rimes and Santana from Glee, but ultimately Eartha Kitt’s original is best.

“You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch” by Thurl Ravenscroft

“The 12 Days of Christmas” by Straight No Chaser (these guys actually rock and could potentially move up to Top Album once I get a chance to listen to more of their songs)

“Silver Bells” or “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
