Christmas is rapidly approaching, and with it all of its little traditions and customs. It’s the holiday season, which means parties, feasts, and get-togethers with loved ones, but no matter how you plan to celebrate, one thing is required: the Christmas playlist.
And there is no better way to spread holiday spirit than through music, whether you prefer the timeless classics of the ’70s or the upbeat originals of the ’00s.

Happy Xmas (War is Over)
An iconic Christmas song written by a musician who had previously been a part of both The Beatles and The Harlem Community Choir, the legendary John Lenon. When everyone is ready to start singing along, the first tune on our list turns into a wonderful feel-good song.
Christmas Tree Farm
As she grew up on a Christmas tree farm (for real!), Taylor Swift found the inspiration for this jolly tune. This charming song is bound to become a modern classic, and can be a hit for your next online party.
All I Want for Christmas is You
Originally performed by Mariah Carey this classic festive tune is a must-have on any Christmas playlist. There’s probably not a single soul out there who hasn’t heard of this song by now; but that’s part of its magic!
Ten years after its initial release, this holiday classic remains as relevant today as it did back in 1994.
Santa Tell Me
Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me” from 2014, is one of the most memorable holiday songs in recent memory. In it, she begs Santa not to make her fall in love if the guy won’t be in her life the following year.
A powerful message and a needed break from all the sappiness that tends to come with the holidays!
Another absolute classic is Last Christmas, performed by the incredible Wham!. The 1984 original has proven to be timeless, even though it was released a full decade before Mariah’s and many things have changed since then.
Hallelujah by Pentatonix
Looking for something a bit different? The a cappella group Pentatonix has released a number of excellent Christmas singles, but their rendition of “Hallelujah” stands out as a fan favorite for good reason.
Thank God It’s Christmas
In 1984, the legendary British rock band of the century, Queen, produced this Christmas hit while still retaining their characteristic sound. The song was a huge success then, and it can still be a great choice now!
