Top 10 Christmas Songs

Feeling very in the Christmas spirit here in Malaysia (which likely has something to do with the fact that I’m getting on a plane to a land filled with snow in one more sleep!  Woot woot!). So it seemed the right time to share my favourite get-me-in-the-Christmas-mood songs. Starting with Louis Armstrong singing Zat You Santa Clause?…

Frosty’s Rag sung by Anita Baker

Madonna’s Santa Baby

John Mellencamp sings I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause

Jimmy Durante’s Frosty the Snowman takes me back to my childhood!

And of course, you couldn’t have a list like this without a little Bing..

Or a little Dean…

Mariah Carey, All I Want for Christmas is You (what can I say, I’m a traditionalist. I prefer this one over her duet with Justin Bieber).

A version of this song appears twice on the Top 10 Holiday Songs on iTunes, sung by Michael Buble and Lady Antebellum, both of which are good, but this U2 version is still my favourite.

And there’s a requirement for Auld Lang Syne at this time of year.  This is a beautiful version by Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis.

Are any of these on your Christmas playlist?  What are your favourite holiday songs?
