Since I’m participating in Blogmas this year, I figured I should make sure at least some of my posts were holiday/Christmas related. So, on this fine Saturday evening, I bring you the first of my ‘Favourite Christmas X’ posts. Each week I’ll (hopefully) be bringing you some of my favourite Christmas-related things, whether that’s TV, film, books, music, or general tidbits! This week I bring you my Favourite Christmas Songs!
We all know this feeling, right? You’re minding your own business shopping somewhere and suddenly, over the speaker system, you hear it – your first Christmas song of the season… in October. I feel very sorry for anyone who works retail over the festive period and this is one of the reasons. That being said, I love a good Christmas song and once it hit mid-November I felt it was an acceptable enough time to start listening to some festive tunes once more. I thought I’d share some of my favourites below, and maybe you can share some of yours in the comments too?
Stop the Cavalry, Jona Lewie (1980)
Fairytale of New York, The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl (1987)
Lonely This Christmas, Mud (1974)
Under the Tree, The Water Babies (2005)
Underneath the Tree, Kelly Clarkson (2013)
Last Christmas, Wham (1984)
White Christmas, Bing Crosby (1942)
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Perry Como (1951) – the Michael Bublé cover is also a favourite though!
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), Darlene Love (1963) – I prefer the Bublé version of this one!
Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End), The Darkness (2003)
Feliz Navidad, José Feliciano (1970)
Well there we have it, guys, those were some of my favourite Christmas songs! I’m sure I’ve missed off some but these are the ones that immediately spring to mind as some of my favourite Christmas songs. What songs do you enjoy listening to during the festive period? Or do you hate holiday songs with a burning passion? Comment down below and let’s chat music!
