My Go-To Christmas Music Playlist
Everyone has a preferred Christmas Music playlist they like to listen to each festive season. For me, it always includes the same 30+ songs. Usually from the 1980s! But also some that link to films and TV. Even some adverts!
Here are some of the songs on my go-to Christmas music playlist. As well as the playlist itself!
Last Christmas by Wham!
It’s as cheesy as songs from the 80s can be, but it’s a fan favourite for a reason. From the ridiculous music video to the catchy lyrics.
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
Yes, there is homophobia in this song and I am not unaware of it – and I don’t sing it – but I still love this song. I’ve always been a fan of Kirsty MacColl, my mother indoctrinated me young! So it goes without saying that this song is always playing in our house at Christmas.
Merry Xmas Everyone by Slade
A rock band doing a Christmas song? Poor Slade. I don’t think they’re going to be remembered for much else beyond this festive banger!
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard
And speaking of rock bands. Wizzard still wins the award for creepiest Christmas music video. But this is a cracking song!
In Dulcio Jublio by Mike Oldfield
Even without lyrics, I can still sing along with this Christmas tune! It’s strangely addictive – particularly in a car!
Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea
Speaking of cars. Who hasn’t played this song in their car at least once over Christmas and smiled all the way home?
Step into Christmas by Elton John
I love nothing more than a cheesy upbeat Christmas song, and this is my go-to all the time.
All Alone On Christmas by Darlene Love
Firstly, this song always reminds me of Home Alone and Love, Actually. And secondly, it’s great to listen to when walking around London as it has a beat.
What Christmas Means to Me by CeeLo Green
And finally – for this list – a recent favourite of mine is What Christmas Means To Me by CeeLo Green. This must be the most listened to song on my playlist for the last month! I’m addicted to it.
