Christmas music never gets old, every year the same songs are played, and some artists will bring out a new song or cover. We have produced a guide to Christmas music for you, including the best of different types.
Best Christmas advert music:
The best music from a Christmas advert is undoubtedly ‘Through Frozen Forests’ by Aaron Espe. Whilst not strictly a Christmas song, it’s a very warming winter song that never fails to impress.
Best modern Christmas song:
One of my favourite modern Christmas songs is ‘Santa Tell Me’ by Ariana Grande. This upbeat pop song is sure to be a hit with everybody.
Best alternative Christmas song:
‘A Spaceman Came Traveling’ by Chris De Burgh is an alternative to the typical Christmas song with a much calmer tone. This song will please anybody looking for something slightly softer than most Christmas songs.
Best silly Christmas song:
‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ by The Spinners takes a classic Christmas song, and adds a multitude of silly outcries between verses such as a comment about the seven swans swimming breaststroke.
Other great Christmas songs:
‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ – Band Aid 30
‘Step Into Christmas’ – Elton John
‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – Mariah Carey
‘Not Tonight Santa’ – Girls Aloud
‘Warm This Winter’ – Gabriella Cilmi
‘What Christmas Means To Me’ – Stevie Wonder
‘Driving Home For Christmas’ – Chris Rea
‘Frosty The Snowman’ – The Jackson 5
‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ – Michael Bublé
‘Shake up Christmas’ – Train
