These Christmas songs will have everyone singing, “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

There are always two types of people around the holidays. First, are the people who obsessively listen to Christmas music every minute of the day and probably start a month too early. Second, are the people who would rather not have Christmas music exist and cringe at the sound of the endless repetitive songs. I, personally, fall perfectly in the middle.

When December finally rolls around, I can’t wait to blast my Christmas playlist, but by the end of the month, they all start sounding the same and they get old. I completely understand both sides, which is why I pulled together the top five Christmas songs that will never go out of style.

  1. “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey

Shoutout to Mariah Carey for creating the most repeated song of December, but also the best one to exist. The Christmas season wouldn’t be the same without the original version or the millions of covers that came after. Something nobody can deny is that no other song can get you as hyped up for Christmas like this one.

  1. “Last Christmas” by Wham!

This is definitely one of the older songs of the holidays, but it is still a classic. George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley created a memorable Christmas classic that has become their most successful hit. I personally enjoy the original version, but many other well-known artists such as Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and the Glee Cast created more modern covers that are just as entertaining.

  1. “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole

While I’ve never actually seen any chestnuts roasting on an open fire, it’s undeniable that “The Christmas Song” is a holiday staple. It is named after Christmas, after all. The lyrics are heartwarming and universal to the holiday spirit, as both Nat King Cole and Mel Tormè have sung about Santa Clause, Rudolph, and the like.

  1. What Christmas Means to Me” by Stevie Wonder

If this song doesn’t get you into the holiday spirit, I don’t know what will. Straight from the Elf Soundtrack, Stevie Wonder combined all the best parts of the holidays into one song which sets the perfect Christmas vibe. It has the perfect upbeat chorus that makes it impossible to ever get bored of listening.

  1. “Drummer Boy” by Justin Bieber

Yes. Justin Bieber. This is by far the best song from his Christmas album, and that is a fact. He does the perfect job of adding his own hip-hop twist to make it a unique song that has never been made before. The ten other songs included in Bieber’s album are definitely worth a listen especially if you get bored of the more well-known songs of the season.
