Holiday Playlist Ideas

Hey, Loves! I know that the holidays are a great and very busy time for everyone. I'm one of those conscientious objectors to Christmas music before Thanksgiving (mosttttttttly) but after Thanksgiving, I take off the gloves. There is nothing for cranking the holiday cheer into high-gear like blaring Christmas music. There is nothing like killing the holiday cheer like hearing songs you hate over and over and over again on the radio. So here, then, are my top picks (both albums and particular songs) for a perfect Christmas soundtrack.

Nat King Cole
- "The Christmas Song"
- "Caroling, Caroling"
- "Joy To The World"
- "I Saw Three Ships"
- "The First Noel"
-"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"

Mindy Gledhill
- Winter Moon (whole album)

Natalie Grant
- "Silver Bells/Christmas Came For Me/ O Holy Night medley"

The Carpenters
- "Christmas Waltz"

Harry Connick Jr.
- "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"
- "Sleigh Ride"
- "Let It Snow"
- "Christmas Dreaming"

Mariah Carey
- "All I Want For Christmas"

Frank Sinatra
- A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra (whole album)

Michael Buble
- "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
- "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"
- "Santa Baby"
- "Baby It's Cold Outside" (with Idina Menzel)

Lady Antebellum
- On This Winter's Night (whole album)

Ella Fitzgerald
- Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas (whole album)

And the best part? You can find the entire playlist as "Classy Sassy Christmas" on Spotify! I will probably continue to add songs to this playlist, but when you've exhausted it, check out my sister's "Chrithmath" playlist which she has doggedly been grooming to beat mine in perfection. Merry Christmas, peoples!

  1. I just love Christmas music--it's one of the best things about the holidays :) Have you ever seen Keith Harkin's version of "All I Want For Christmas"? It's really cool--you should check it out on YouTube :)
