It’s finally the holiday season! I’m doing my own version of Blogmas where I post twice a week (YAY!). Christmas is my favorite holiday and my playlist is definitely longer than 10 songs but here are some essentials that no one should ever miss out on.
1. All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is the face of Christmas, not Santa Claus but Mimi. And this a holiday classic that must never be ignored so here it is as the first mention on the list.
2. 8 Days of Christmas – Destiny’s Child
If you don’t know this hit you’ve been missing out your entire life. If my boo bought me Chloe shades and diamond belly ring I’d write him a song too.
3. Every Year, Every Christmas – Luther Vandross
Mariah Carey is the face of Christmas and Luther is her right hand during the holidays. Every Year, Every Christmas is truly a hit and you should download it right now.
4. Mistletoe – Justin Bieber
Listen, Justin did what needed to be done on this track. Mistletoe is so catchy that I honestly can’t imagine a holiday season without it.
5. Christmas with My Girl – Mindless Behavior
Christmas with My Girl by Mindless Behavior is probably an underrated new classic. Ray Ray put it best when he told us our presence was the only present that he really wanted.
6. Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
Santa Baby is a classic and was a City Girls song before the JT and Resha ever hit the scene. Definitely a necessary addition.
7. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Mariah Carey
I told you all before, Mariah Carey is synonymous with Christmas.
8. This Christmas – Chris Brown
Yes, I know I am probably a regional director of the “Chris Brown Should Go to Jail” committee but we all have weaknesses and this movie and the song are just, I am weak and nostalgic for childhood and Chris Brown’s This Christmas is my childhood.
9. Last Christmas – Wham!
RIP George Michael and thank you for such an amazing Christmas classic.
10. Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Jackson 5
I mean, baby Michael Jackson is just so cute on the track!
What are your favorite Christmas songs? Did I snub any bops you consider classics? Let me know in the comments.
PS: Sorry I’ve been away so long. The semester is ending and college is trying to kick my butt.

Great list here! Lots of new tunes I need to check out before Christmas and of course the legendary Christmas jam Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is you, which is one of my favorites.
This is a good list. How much I love Christmas! I think I will put these songs from the first December to get in the mode! 🙂
It’s a great way to kick off the season!
Mariah Christmas Song hits are still my top favorite. Never gets old!
Well as I am a bit older I am allowed to say Bing Crosby, aren’t I? I have a bit of a weakness for him as my father looked like him. And I always like ‘Do they know it is Christmas time?
LOL Bing Crosby is a totally okay with me
Great playlist. I’m a sucker for Christmas music. I would definitely add every song here to my playlist.
See, you trying to get a whole fight started online leaving out the Temptations’ Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer. lol I’d add James Brown’s Santa Claus Come Straight to the Ghetto, the Jackson Five’s I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and Boys II Men’s Let It Snow.
The funniest part are these all are on my personal playlist I was just trying to keep it short and sweet lol
WOw i forgot about some of these!!! I’m about to put that playlist together right now. The Chris Brown version of this christmas was definitely an unexpected fave.
This is a list! I need to get my iTunes playlist ready. Also you got The Queen of Christmas Mariah on top LOL
I honestly love every one of these songs on this list! Especially Eartha Kitt’s Santa Baby. It’ll always and forever be a bop!
Ugh I love Santa Baby
