The Best Music To Listen To On Christmas Day




Don’t you just love the cheery atmosphere once December hits? While Christmas is mostly centered around family meals, snow, and presents, we tend to forget that great music plays an important role in setting the mood for the season!

Before you begin the day with warm hot chocolate and a hearty Christmas breakfast, hit up these tunes for the perfect Christmas Day atmosphere!


“Last Christmas” by Wham 

This is a true classic. Who doesn’t want to sing the lyrics to “Last Christmas” loudly and proudly at this time of year?


“All I Want For Christmas” by Mariah Carey 


As soon as you hear that twinkling intro, you know it’s Christmas! There is no other Christmas song that is so widely loved and played on the radio if you haven’t listened to this one yet – you need to!


“Do They Know It’s Christmas” Band Aid 30


The updated version of the original Band Aid song contains all your favorite pop stars, and just goes to show that you can’t beat an old song, but you can update it!


“I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” by Wizzard 


Not feeling Christmassy yet? This is the song that will absolutely lift your festive spirits.


“I believe in Father Christmas” by Greg Lake 


Another old but gold song, this one will remind you of your parents preparing for Christmas Day and playing music in the house!


“Santa Baby” by Kylie Minogue 


Santa Baby is a perfect Christmas tune. Put on your best Christmas jumper and bop around the house to this song, it’ll definitely raise your festive spirits!


“Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney 


This Christmas classic is the perfect antidote to fading Christmas cheer, if you don’t feel it yet, sing the lyrics loud and proud and get in the vibe!


“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues 


This alternative Christmas song is well-known for its insulting language and jig that’s good enough to dance around the living room too!


“Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” by Bruce Springsteen 


If you’re more of a Bruce Springsteen girl, listen to Bruce’s cover of Santa Claus is coming to time and feel just a little bit cooler than the classic Christmas tunes.


“Driving Home For Christmas” by Chris Rea


En route to your family this Christmas? This is the perfect driving song for Christmas and will get you in the mood to see your family and friends. It’s also a good song for driving to the store to get extra food!


“Don’t Let The Bells End!” by The Darkness 


For a classic rock Christmas song, get your air guitar ready and rock out to this Christmas classic!
