The most wonderful time of the year usually brings some heated debates to the forefront. No we aren’t talking politics, who the best quarterback in the NFL is, or who the best rapper in the game is right now. Once Thanksgiving ends, the radio starts to turn into a month long Christmas mixtape. Yes, the debate of what the best Christmas song is almost here and we are here to give you a list of songs you better have on your list. From Mariah Carey to Nat King Cole and Dean Martin, we have all your bases covered.
Wham!: Last Christmas
You weren’t expecting this one were you? This 1980s band provided us with one of those songs you just automatically sing along to. Nothing like a little romantic heartbreak song to start off the holidays.
Gene Autry: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
You can’t describe this song with any other word besides classic. Rudolph may be the first Christmas song we all learned as children and is one of the most popular songs you can hear during Christmas time.
Bing Crosby: It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
There is no better song to start off your holiday season than Bing Crosby’s classic hit.
Mariah Carey: All I Want For Christmas Is You
Before Mariah hit us with this instant classic, we were singing the same Christmas songs over and over again. After releasing this single in 1994, Mariah changed the Christmas melody list forever. If you are in New York City during the holiday season, be sure to grab yourself Mariah Carey tickets to watch her perform the most popular Christmas song to fully get you in the holiday mood.
Brenda Lee: Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree
Bobby Helms: Jingle Bell Rock
Jose Feliciano: Feliz Navidad
Burl Ives: A Holly Jolly Christmas
Dean Martin: Let It Snow
