With Christmas and New Year’s coming up you’re going to want to end the year with some good vibes and what better way to do that then listen to great music. Down below I have compiled a list of Christmas songs chosen by a group of people with exceptionally good taste. I have also included the versions I think are superior. So, feel free to look over it and find out which song you like best.
At number 10 we have “Mistletoe'' by Justin Bieber. I didn't choose another version because I think he sings it best. In case you didn't know, Justin Bieber is one of the most famous artists in the world. He recorded mistletoe at 17 and this year marks the 10-year anniversary of the song. One fact about this song is that it was first performed during his world tour and has been a staple in Christmas son...
12 Days of Christmas
At number 9 we have “12 days of Christmas”, sung by the group Pentatonix. I like this version because it adds a modern spin to it. One fact about this is that the release date is unknown. In fact, some believe that the song was made around the 16th century. Another cool fact about this song is that it's one of the most performed Christmas songs of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UHmQANFt...
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
At number 8 we have “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, sung by Andy Williams. This version is best because it just is. One fun fact about this song is that it was featured in Home Alone 2. Another fact is that some of its lyrics have nothing to do with Christmas such as the line, “scary ghost stories”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN_R4pR1hck
At number 7 we have “Jingle Bells”, sung by Michael Bublé. This version was chosen because it was a little more upbeat and had a faster paste. Something amazing about this song is that it was the first song to be broadcasted in space. One crazy fact is that the song was never meant to be a Christmas song. It was, in fact, a Thanksgiving song. Another fun fact is that “Jingle Bells” is not ...
Let It Snow
At number 6 we got “Let it Snow ", sung by Dean Martin. This version was fine because it was a classic. One fact about this song is that it was apparently written during a heatwave which I guess is why they wanted it to snow. Another fact is that there is no actual mention of Christmas within the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rnil5LyK_B0
Jingle Bell Rock
At number 5 we have “Jingle bell rock'', sung by the cast of the series “Glee”. I have chosen this version because it's not as slow as the original. One fun fact about this song is that it's been featured in movies like Mean Girls and Home Alone. Another fact about this song is that although it's his most famous song, Helms didn't actually take part in writing the song. A fact about this son...
At number 4 we have “Feliz Navidad '', By Jose Feliciano. I chose the original because I think it's the best one. Though I don't have many facts about the song, we can still learn about the singer. The artist Jose Feliciano was born blind and still managed to make such a fun song. As he was making his album, he decided to make a Christmas song which turned out to be Feliz Navidad. Such a great son...
Santa Tell Me
At number 3 we have “Santa Tell Me'', by Arianna Grande. Only listen to this version because Ariana is superior. Just like Justin, Arianna Grande is also one amongst one of the most famous artists in the world. One fun fact about this song is that Arianna Grande first performed this song during a Grammy Christmas concert. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlR0MkrRklg
All I Want for Christmas Is You
At number 2 we have “All I want for Christmas Is You”, by Mariah Carey. Only choose to listen to the Mariah Carey one because it's tradition. To this day Mariah Carey is considered one of the greatest singers of all time with her incredible impact on music today. One fact about the song is that Mariah Carey co-wrote the whole song in 15 minutes. Something else you probably didn't know is that it...
Lastly at number 1 we have “Last Christmas”, by Wham! I chose this version because I think it's the best one and it gives off a nice Christmas vibe. Wham! is an English duo that became successful in the 1980s selling millions of records worldwide. One fact about the writing of this song is that one of the writers, Michael, actually wrote it within his childhood bedroom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8gmARGvP...
