Holiday Songs! by Wendi Zwaduk

This year, I wanted to discuss my favorite holiday songs. I’m a sucker for holiday music and while I’m not the one who wants to play it right after Halloween, I do tend to get into the spirit rather quickly. There’s nothing better than a good holiday song. So, to celebrate this, I wanted to share my list of favorite songs. This isn’t in a particular order, because sometimes you want a sexy song and sometimes you want a fun one. It all depends on the day. So here’s my list.

Last Christmas by Wham! – How can you not like this one? It’s yearning, sad, but poppy.

Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid – this one’s sad, too, but it proves that there’s a place for hope. Hope and a call to help.

Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives – I love this one because it always makes me think of Rudolph, being a kid and spending the holidays with my grandparents.

Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry – this one’s just plain fun. I love a good rocking Chuck Berry and you can’t go wrong with this one.

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town by the Jackson 5 – it’s fun, just like Chuck Berry. I love this one. Gets you right into the spirit.

Zat You, Santa Claus? By Louis Armstrong – another fun one that’s fun to listen to. Can’t go wrong with Louis Armstrong

Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys or the Muppets – I’m going to age myself by admitting I heard this first by the Muppets and there’s nothing more fun than listening to Animal screaming Run, Run Reindeer during this one. It’s great.

The Chipmunk Song by the Chipmunks – this is a titular Christmas type song. It has to be played. It’s fun and you can’t miss it. Plus, everyone seems to know it.

Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt – this one is the original sexy Santa song. Kitt makes it fun, but also a lot naughty.

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town by Bruce Springsteen – this one gets its own entry because you can’t deny the Boss. Plus, he manages to do the Eartha Kitt method and made it fun while sexy.

The Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler – this one is naughty at times, fun at a lot more and made people realize there’s more to the holiday season than Christmas. I love it.

So what would you consider your favorite holiday songs? I know I missed A LOT. Hit me with your favorite holiday song titles. I want to know!
