Our Top 10 Favorite Christmas Songs

Have you been listening to Christmas songs?  Sometimes, there’s nothing quite like a great holiday carol to get you in the mood.  There are a ton of Christmas songs out there, and your top ten is likely to be different than ours, but here are ten holiday songs we really love.

1.    Santa Claus is Coming to Town – it’s an oldie but a goodie.  This song has been recorded by many different people, starting with Bruce Springsteen in 1975.

2.    Happy Christmas (War is Over) – while it started as a protest song during the Vietnam War, this classic by John and Yoko the Plastic Ono Band has become a holiday favorite.

3.    Wonderful Christmas Time – if you’re simply having a wonderful Christmas time, it may be because you’ve been listening to this song by Paul McCartney & Wings.

4.    I’ll be Home for Christmas – first recorded by Bing Crosby in 1943, this song has provided comfort and reassurance for anyone separated from their loved ones during the holiday season.  The 2007 recording by Josh Groban is a popular modern interpretation.

5.    Walking in A Winter Wonderland – who doesn’t want to stroll through the amazing scenes painted by this song?  Dean Martin puts us all in the mood to make a snowman!

6.    All I Want for Christmas – Mariah Carey created a new holiday sensation with this pop Christmas song.  Just because it’s a more recent tune doesn’t mean it lacks the spirit of Christmas.

7.    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Sinatra.  Christmas.  What more do you need?

8.    Carol of the Bells – while it’s not a song you go around singing by yourself, it’s still an awesome piece.  Did you know that it’s actually based on a traditional folk chant from the Ukraine?

9.    Pachelbel’s Canon in D – again, another holiday song you may not sing while caroling, but the version of Johann Pachelbel’s most famous work performed by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is perhaps the most well-known piece by the group.

10.    The Twelve Day of Christmas – this classic Christmas song has been around for centuries.  The earliest publication of the carol was in 1780, and there’s some evidence that indicates it may have been sung in France decades before that.  Everyone knows this song, although we don’t know who in their right mind would give someone a live partridge in a pear tree as a gift.

These are ten of the most memorable and catchy Christmas songs.  Do you have any traditional carols you love to sing or listen to during the holiday season?

Once you’ve got your music playing, you need some Christmas flowers in Kansas City, MO, to really get your home ready for the holidays!  There’s still time to order, but hurry!
