It’s Christmas Time!!
That means we break out the eggnog and sing some carols while roasting some chestnuts…..right? Christmas music has definitely evolved over the years but the songs that get me in the Christmas spirit is quite different from others. Gotta Press Play Contributor, Sabrina and I picked our favorite Christmas songs we think everyone should add to their Christmas playlist!
Christmas Time (Bryan Adams) by MÉNAGE
Tammy: This is just a hopeful song about the song about the Christmas season and wanting to keep that happy feeling all year-long.
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey
Sabrina: I honestly can’t say why I love this song but I really do. It’s classic and just plain ridiculous and it just screams Christmas.
Lonely Christmas – Rebel Coast
Tammy: The title speaks for itself but when it first starts I instantly think of Hawaii and I instantly wish I could spend Christmas in Oahu like Mindy Kaling.
Christmas Lights – Sam Bradley
Sabrina: It’s funny, it’s cute, and it’s Sam Bradley… This girl couldn’t ask for anything more.
You’re Just Like Christmas – The Crookes
Tammy: I love the Crookes!! This song is heartfelt yet really fun – just like the band!
All I Want for Christmas – Bob Schneider
Sabrina: Not only is this song amazing but the chorus cracks me up!
My December – Linkin Park
Tammy: This is one of my favorite Christmas songs because it’s not completely about the actual day but the season. There’s a catch-22 when it comes to Christmas, for many people it’s either the happiest time of the year or the worst. This song ambiguously touches on the loneliness some feel around this time of the year.
Christmas in Hollis – Run-DMC
Sabrina: One of the best rapped Christmas songs ever.
Hope you enjoyed our list and hope some of these classic Christmas gems makes it onto your playlist.
