Packed with Christmas classics and tracks with a modern touch, this list will have you full of warmth and love and ready to celebrate this festive season!

1. All I Want for Christmas - Mariah Carey

 

This is a song you'll hear walking into the shopping center when you're rushing around for your last minute Christmas bits! The timeless song is one of the top songs of everyone's Christmas playlist. Full of joy and happiness, the upbeat track blesses several homes undoubtedly every year. Carey definitely profits off A LOT on this one yearly... what a smart way to mark her legacy in the music industry.

2. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl

 

 A Christmas classic. We all know this one! This Irish folk-style ballad featured as part of the Pogues' 1988 album 'If I Should Fall from Grace with God' and has been repeatedly sung during the festive season. Proving enduringly popular with both music critics and the public the song will never get old!

3. Mistletoe - Justin Bieber

 

Reaching new heights and claiming a Christmas classic status among the young, he's not just your average teen idol. Bieber brought us 'Mistletoe' in 2011 and we love what the modern Christmas track has brought to the music scene. Filled with love and joy the track can be found in so many Christmas playlists... tune in now!

4. Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande

 

With beautiful vocals and a classic jingle undertone, Ariana Grande blesses our ears with this track all about relationships, love and Christmas festivities. If you love this one you'll love the young artists' 'Christmas & Chill EP'!

5. Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas - Michael Bublé

 

Popularising the original song written in 1951 by Meredith Willson, the song has been remade and remastered many times over. Buble's remake offers the calming atmosphere needed during an often hectic period. His smooth vocals over a classic Christmas instrumental is just what we need this festive season.

6. Last Christmas - Wham

 

English pop duo Wham released this banger in 1984 and since then its been covered and revamped by many artists since its original release. Listen to the track now for some throwback Christmas nostalgia. 

7. Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee

 

 Again covered several times over the years, Brenda Lee's track recorded in the late 50s remains one of the greatest holiday songs of all time. If it doesn't remind you of Home Alone 2 then you're missing out... check out the classic festive movie and song while you're at it!

8. Jungle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms

 

 Ladies, doesn't this song just remind you of that scene in Mean Girls? You know what scene I'm talking about! This festive track is one of the all-time great Christmas songs, one that still enters the charts 60 years after it was recorded.

9. Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - Dean Martin

 As part of his album 'A Winter Romance', Martin's track is a holiday standard. It's a song we can't help but sing all day long, and really and truly we're all still waiting for a white Christmas this festive season.

10. It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Andy Williams

 

 A popular Christmas song returning to the Billboard Hot 100 chart just last year. It's the epitome of 'Christmas' in a song and we can expect this traditional song to hit the charts again and again!
