My Christmas Playlist

My Christmas Playlist

Hi guys, I hope you’re all doing well and we’re all starting to get into the Christmas spirit! I will be honest, I’ve been listening to these songs well before December – but for those of you who stick to the unwritten rules, it will be time for you to finally listen to your first Christmas song of the season. So, I thought it would be nice to share my Christmas playlist with you all!

I know everybody’s Christmas playlist is probably the same. There’s only so many Christmas songs out there! It’s still something I love doing every year, and I never bore of any of these songs. I thought I’d let you in on which are my ultimate favourites, too! Let’s get into it!

There’s a few classics I’ve missed out because I don’t particularly like them (shocker!), but regardless, let me know if you think I’ve missed out a banger of a Christmas song!

Onto my ultimate favourites… There’s so many, that this was really difficult. I limited myself to 5 songs, because otherwise the list would have gone on and on, and I’d have just repeated my entire playlist again. Without further ado, my top 5 Christmas songs are:

  1. Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End) – The Darkness
  2. Fairytale Of New York – The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl
  3. Stop The Cavalary – Jona Lewie
  4. Step Into Christmas – Elton John
  5. Lonely This Christmas – Mud

I cannot stress enough how much I love these songs!!! They’re all amazing pieces of work, and while all being Christmas songs, all have a different vibe to them. I’d also like to make an honorary mention to Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass – All Time Low. Despite being a massive ATL fan while I was growing up, I had never really listened to this song until two Christmases ago. I found this wonderful song during a Christmas where I was in such a bad place due to someone quite toxic in my life. Definitely an amazing song to sing at the top of your lungs, while you’re driving home from uni, bawling your eyes out. If I had allowed myself 6 songs for my favourites list, this would have made #6 for definite.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I’ve inspired you to start making/listening to your own Christmas playlist (if you haven’t started already, like I have). If you don’t have one, feel free to check out mine on Spotify, here.

What’s your favourite Christmas song? Or top 5 if you just can’t decide on one? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

      Thank you! It’s such a great song, there’s been so many times that I’ve had it on repeat 🙈

    Brilliant post! Love all of those songs, my favourite has to be Step Into Christmas <3 I can't help but get up and dance whenever I hear it! Completely forgot about All Time Low, I love all their albums, can't believe I forgot their Christmas one…brb whilst I go and listen! x

      Thank you, Emily! Step Into Christmas is such a good song – I’m glad I’ve found someone who loves it as much as I do! Hahaha, I love the All Time Low Christmas song, it’s a great chance to all the classics and so good!

    I love a good Christmas song and you’ve listed so many fab ones. Although, I feel like I must be in the minority because I hate Fairytale of New York! Everyone else in the house loves it lol 🙂

      Thank you! Not every song is for everyone, that is fair enough 😂

    I am a massive lover of Christmas songs! There are some great classics out there. I’m not a fan of them all, I have got my own playlist to make sure I have the correct songs. I think my favourite Christmas song would be Christmas Time. I adore that song!

      I am so glad I’ve found another Christmas Time lover!!! It’s such a great song, but not everybody I know likes it. I’m not a fan of some classics either, so I totally agree with creating your own playlist to avoid them ☺️

    Thank you Beka! I’m in the process of making my own Christmas playlist so this post couldn’t of come at a better time! My childhood Christmas song is Snoopy’s Christmas and no matter how old I get, it’s always at the top of my list.

      I’ve never heard of that song before! Even though it’s no longer Christmas, my curiousity is getting the better of me and now I have to find it and listen to it 😂

    Ooh this is excellent!
    I’m still putting mine together, and trying to limit myself to around 20 songs otherwise I’m as well shoving the entirety of Now That’s What I Call Christmas on to it haha.
    I think my favourite is Christmas Time by The Darkness. I love how they don’t take themselves seriously, but also it’s a cracking love song.

      Hahaha, I totally understand that! It’s so easy to get carried away when every Christmas song is glorious – but why limit yourself? It only comes once a year! Yesssss, that song is amazing, I love when I find other people who love it, too ☺️

    That is one great Christmas playlist and reminded me of some I’d forgotten so will have to go and add them to my playlist now!
