Holiday Songs to Sing with Friends


Elizabeth Schwartzhoff, Staff Writer

As the holiday season is here, it is time for Christmas music. The list could go on forever, there are so many different songs. Here’s a list of the timeless classics and also some newer songs to give a listen. For other new selections, check out Spotify and search ‘Christmas Playlists.’

  1. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year- Andy Williams, whenever this song comes on, it immediately reminds me that it is officially Christmas time and is super upbeat.
  2. All I Want for Christmas is You- Mariah Carey, this is a song that everyone knows and when it comes on, we all belt out the lyrics.
  3. Mistletoe- Justin Bieber, this is personally one of my favorites, whether you’re single or in relationship. This song is the type where you would be driving around looking at the Christmas lights.
  4. Last Christmas- Ariana Grande, there have been so many renditions of this song and they all song great, but this is my favorite, especially with her vocals. This also explains almost all of the Christmas Hallmark movies.
  5. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! – Frank Sinatra, almost all of us want a white Christmas and while they may not be possible every year, we can at least sing about it.
  6. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- Sam Smith, this is a rendition of the original, and is a much slower and calmer song than the rest. When listening to this song, it reminds of snow falling and just being content.
  7.  Underneath the Tree- Kelly Clarkson, released on 2013, this song became a hit and described how most Christmas’ she had spent alone but this year she found someone and is a present.
  8.  The 12 Days of Christmas- Straight No Chaser, in this song, it is very different than the original and it includes a chaotic energy. Straight No Chaser is an Capella group.
  9. Jingle Bell Trap- Trap City, this is a completely different take on the classic Jingle Bells and has more bass to rock out with your friends.
  10. Believe- Josh Groban, this song is from The Polar Express, one of my favorite Christmas movies. In the song, he sings about growing up and to also keep believing no matter the age.
