Cheesy Christmas songs to get you in a festive mood!

Christmas isn’t Christmas without Mariah straining her lungs or Elton bashing his piano keys, right? So for all of you out there who are feeling festive, merry and bright, here’s our perfect Christmas playlist.

(And if you hate the ‘usual’ Christmas cheese, don’t worry, we have an equally ‘cool’ list of alternative Christmas songs coming up, with no tralala’s in sight…)

Mariah Carey – All I want for Christmas (is you)

Elton John – Step into Christmas

Slade – Merry Christmas Everybody

Wizzard – I wish it could be Christmas everyday

Wham! – Last Christmas

Paul McCartney – Wonderful Christmas time

Jackson 5 – Santa Claus is coming to town

Band Aid – Do they know it’s Christmas?

Bing Crosby & Martha Mears – White Christmas

The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York

Then there’s the Christmas songs we all know and love, but probably couldn’t tell you who sang them…possibly because they’ve each been covered thousands of times, the sign of a true classic!
