BLOGMAS Day 5 - Top 5 Christmas Songs


5. White Christmas - Bing Crosby (1942)

White Christmas is one of the oldest commercially released Christmas Songs and the best selling Christmas song of all time... well, actually it's the best selling single ever. Having sold over 150 million copies worldwide. This song is a classic, it's calm and relaxing, it's iconic. Crosby's deep, soothing voice help me sleep at night. It doesn't really, except it does.

4. Wonderful Christmastime - Paul McCartney (1979)

A simple, cheerful Christmas song by perhaps one of the most iconic musicians of all time. The less-depressing of the 2 Christmas songs released by former Beatles members. What's even more impressive is that McCartney recorded the song entirely alone with no help from his frequent collaborators, Wings, even though they do appear in the music video.

3. All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey (1994)

Although I'm not a huge fan of Mariah Carey as a person I do love this song. Carey co-wrote the song that showcases her high-pitch and strong vocals brilliantly. Upbeat, dance-y and a song that almost everyone knows the words to. She must make a bomb every single Christmas from the sales of this track. Makes me jealous but who cares, I got my Star Wars advent calendar and a light up jumper so sucks to be her.

2. Christmas Time - The Darkness (2003)

You never get bored of an alternative, rock-based Christmas song. The darkness offers a loud, fast-paced song which I still can't figure out if a happy or sad one... either way, it's good. It may be an obvious money-grab by a popular at the time band but who cares, it's a decent song. You'll have to make do with this crappy still as publisher, Rhino, don't allow their music video to be embedded in other sites, the bastards, click here to listen.

1. Fairy Tale Of New York - The Pogues (1987)

If this isn't your favourite Christmas song then get out. Never has such a happy song been about a terrible relationship coming to an end around Christmas time. When we have Christmas music on at work in December I always ask for this song on repeat because it's the best ever in the world ever forever ever. Plus it's pretty much the only track which doesn't stop halfway through. Again, the wonderful guys over at Rhino don't let us embed so enjoy an even crappier quality still and watch the video here.
