‘Tis the season, everyone! Usually, that means that Mariah Carey’s 1994 Christmas album will be played non-stop on the radio. Or not – luckily for us, Elite Daily has made a list of six 2018 songs you need to put on your holiday playlist!
December 3rd, 2018
1. “MY OLD SANTA CLAUS” BY SIA
Sia just released a deluxe version of her 2017 Christmas album Everyday is Christmas, and on it are quite a few gems that deserve your attention. Like “My Old Santa Claus,” which is the most Sia-esque Christmas song we’ve ever heard.
2. “WHITE CHRISTMAS” BY MEGHAN TRAINOR
Looking for a new take on an old classic? Then Meghan Trainor’s “White Christmas” is another song to add to your holiday playlist. The song is about as Christmas-y as you’re going to get, so you can’t go wrong with this one!
3. “BRING ME LOVE” BY JOHN LEGEND
If you’re looking for a song that’s modern but has a classic Christmas feel, then John Legend’s “Bring Me Love” is it! The song is upbeat, but it definitely puts you in the Christmas spirit. There’s a bit of percussion, so you can clap your hands and tap your feet, and there are also a few jingles and jangles to make it seem like Santa’s on his way. Oh, and of course, there are Legend’s incredible vocals to tie it all together.
4. “ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE” BY PENTATONIX
Even Pentatonix is getting in on the Christmas music game with their own version of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” The song has a jazzy kind of feel, which is great for curling up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa.
5. “THIS CHRISTMAS DAY” BY JESSIE J
If you and your family are coping with a loss this holiday season, then Jessie J’s “This Christmas Day” is a song you need to hear. It’s emotional, full of heart, and it might even make you shed a tear or two. Even if you haven’t experienced loss recently, this song is so beautiful that it’s worth sharing with the people you love anyway.
6. “YOU MAKE IT FEEL LIKE CHRISTMAS” BY GWEN STEFANI AND BLAKE SHELTON
Back in 2017, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton collaborated in the studio to record “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.” And now, a year later, they’ve finally made a video for it, and it’s a total glam-fest! Check it out down below.
