My Top 5 Favorite Christmas Songs [VIDEOS]

There’s nothing that gets me in the mood for Christmas more than hearing my favorite Christmas songs.

I have a few favorites that are classic, and it just isn’t Christmas without hearing them.  Here’s a list of my top 5 favorite Christmas songs.  Some are old, some are new, and all are worth cranking up to help get you into the Christmas spirit!

#5.  “Carol of the Bells” Steven Sharp Nelson

This is an amazing song, done beautifully.  The original is hauntingly beautiful, and this version definitely does it justice!  It’s always nice to hear a new and different version of an amazing Christmas Song.  (Except for Madonna’s “Santa Baby”) I’ve already asked my brother (who has recently started playing the cello again) if he’d start working on this for next Christmas.

#4.  “All I Want For Christmas” Mariah Carey

I love Mariah’s take on this classic.  And it’s not just me.  This song became the nineteenth-best-selling digital single of the 20th century, the highest-charting entry by a female or holiday song on the list, and Rolling Stone ranked it fourth on its Greatest Rock and Roll Christmas Songs list, calling it a “holiday standard.”

#3.  “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” The Drifters

My favorite Christmas movie?  It has to be “Home Alone.”  Maybe because I had a huge crush on Macaulay Caulkin in 1990 when I was 10.  And because the soundtrack is amazing.  One of my favorite scenes, is Kevin McCallister lip-synching this song into his comb in the bathroom mirror.  Classic.

#2 “Last Christmas” Wham

I don’t remember how it started, but this song became a staple for my family around the holidays.  We all sing along when we hear it, and maybe it’s not the song lyrics and melody that give me that warm fuzzy, but the smile that crosses every face–from my kids to my husband–when we hear it and start belting it out.  The video is a classic too.  So whether it screams “Christmas Spirit” or not is for you to decide.  Is it cheesy?  Yes.  Underrated?  Probably not.  Totally Awesome?  Yes.

#1 “White Christmas” Bing Crosby

And it HAS to be the Bing Crosby version though.  Ever since I was little, my mom would play this around the holidays.  It always brings me back, and it’s just not Christmas without a little Bing.
