Top 10 Christmas Songs


Luke Land

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. Pretty lights, amazing decorations, being around family and friends, and of course, the music. Christmas music is quite a popular genre of music. I reviewed the 10 best and most classic Christmas songs of all time. 


10) Happy Holidays / The Holiday Season by Andy Williams: Joyful vibes is how I would describe this song. A classic that has great vocals and great lyrics. It flows so well together. Great song overall. 

9) 12 Days Of Christmas by Bing Crosby and The Andrew Sisters: The most variety within one song in the Christmas genre. You could replace anything they give out on each day with anything, which makes this song a classic. The overlapping vocals of Crosby and the Andrew Sisters just work so well together. It just completes the song. 

8) Deck the Halls by Nat King Cole: Probably the most catchy song on this list. The sound of this song is just addicting. The song starts to speed up as it moves,  which is  such a nice touch. It is one of the most iconic sayings with Christmas, which helps with making this a classic song. 

7)  You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft: An iconic song in an iconic Christmas movie, it is the most popular song in The Grinch, and for good reason. All little kids know this song from the movie, but it also just became a classic over the years. It could have possibly been higher, but I personally don’t like the movie that much, so it’s all the way up here. 

6) Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Gene Authy: Just like #8, this one is an iconic song in an iconic Christmas movie. Everyone knows this song, or at least the first verse, by heart. When a song in a movie is made into a classic, you know you did something right, and that’s the case here. A great story for little kids to enjoy in a song, and a very catchy song at that.

5) Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) by Elvis Presley: One of the greatest music artists of all time doing what he does best: making classic songs. This is such a classic. It’s the epitome of Christmas, just not as well done as the others higher on this placement list. The song is such a beautiful song, and of course Elvis’s low voice mixes great with his higher voice. Just a great song overall. 

4) Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms: I cannot put my finger on it, but this song just screamed to be put at #4. The beat on this song gives the most cheerful vibes out of all of the songs on this list. The vocals by Bobby Helms are just so satisfying to listen to. An amazing song that deserves its placement. 

3) It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas by Michael Bublé: It is mind-boggling how he managed to remake this classic Christmas song, make it sound so similar yet so much better than the classic one. He slowed the pace down to make it more calming and the vocals are just amazing. A top Christmas artist of all time and this song proves it with flying colors. 

2) Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee: The epitome of a Christmas song. It’s what I consider to be the best “old school” Christmas song out there. The hook is amazing. It gives me vivid memories of Christmas mornings at my grandparents house with my family opening presents and having fun talks with my family. 

1) All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey: Iconic is all I have to say. Always ends up dominating the charts during the Holiday season. It is the best song to show love and holiday spirit in one song and we cannot forget about the vocals. One of the catchiest hooks ever. Best Christmas song and it’s not even a close race.
