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!

Eartha Kitt – Santa baby
Bobby Helms – Jingle bell rock
The Ronettes – I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus
