 Temperatures are dropping, snow is falling and winter is approaching. If you’re into a warm cozy festive season, then this list of the top 10 Christmas songs is for you. 

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey came out in 2010. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was the second song to have that name. Carey co-wrote “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in just 15 minutes. Carey thought that making a Christmas album was too early, but it is never too early to listen to Christmas music. 

“Last Christmas” Last Christmas” was released in 1984 by Wham! This song isn’t really a Christmas song. It’s about a guy who gave someone his heart and this ungrateful person “gave it away.” George Michael wrote “Last Christmas” in his childhood bedroom. This song remains as one of the most played Christmas songs. It even inspired a romantic comedy-drama movie using its title this year! 

“It’s the Most Wonderful time of the year” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” was written by Andy Williams. It was a holiday hit that came out in 1963. This song is a celebration and description of activities associated with the Christmas season, focusing primarily on get-togethers between friends and families. 

“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas” Tree by Brenda Lee came out in 1958. Brenda Lee was only 13 years old when she recorded this song. Over the years, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” has been recorded by countless artists and is recognized as a Christmas classic across the world. 

“Santa Claus is coming to town” “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” was released in 1970. It is also another played song that’s really popular. They had trouble convincing anyone to produce it because it was seen as a “kid” song, which would have been very hard to sell. Even though Rudolph is arguably the most popular of Santa’s reindeers, he only makes a small appearance in the film. Many little children would enjoy watching the film and of course the song to see the cute animations. 

“Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!” “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!” came out in 1945. The lyrics of this song contain no mention of Christmas. A lot of artists have covered this song. It was written during a heatwave and is also played on the radio during the Christmas season. 

“Jingle Bell Rock” “Jingle Bell Rock” is a popular christmas song. It was first sung by Bobby Helms in 1957. It is often played on the radio during the Christmas season. This song gets many people in the festive season while enjoying festive activities. 

“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmasis a Christmas song written in 1951 by Meredith Willson. The song was originally titled “It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas.” The song has been covered by many artists but one of the best is Michael Bublé which wasn’t released until 2011. 

“Feliz Navidad “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano was released in 2014. This song was written to unite people with its holiday cheer for both spanish and english. Each year during the Christmas season, “Feliz Navidad” returns as one of the most played and downloaded song of the season. 

“Rudolph the red nosed reindeer” “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’ is another holiday classic that was released in 1964 by Robert May. Many younger children enjoy this song. Mays daughter said the story of Rudolph is sad because her father was a “sad guy.” May figured the story should be about a reindeer because images of Santa’s reindeer were already everywhere during the Christmas season, and his daughter was obsessed with a deer at Lincoln Park Zoo. 

  With the holidays coming up, if you enjoy listening to festive Christmas music, these options are a good way to uplift the holiday spirit.
