Fairytale Of New York
The Pogues

This bizarre record of a Christmas-time breakup shouldn’t be a festive great but it’s one of the most compelling songs ever written, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without it.

The “original” and to many people’s minds “greatest” Christmas record is the utterly timeless version of White Christmas sung by Bing Crosby, an American Legend.

The Christmas Song
Nat King Cole

“Chestnuts roasting on a open fire… “ everyone knows the lyrics, even if they don’t know the song name. Nat King Cole makes us feel Christmassy with every bar.

Winter Wonderland
Dean Martin

Is there another song that even comes close to capturing the childish joy of walking out the front door at Christmas and stepping into crisp snow among happy neighbours?

No, we don’t think there is and that’s why Dean Martin’s classic made our list with ease.

Do You Hear What I Hear?
Whitney Houston

Whitney, sadly, had already passed over to the other side before her perfect rendition of Do You Hear What I Hear? had topped the Christmas charts.

It’s a phenomenal record and it reminds of just how much talent Miss Houston had.

Let It Snow
Boyz II Men

There are so many covers of Let It Snow that we could have filled the entire list with them but we had to settle on one and we opted for Boyz II Men.

It’s a wonderfully understated approach to the song that makes us feel completely in the holiday mood.

Carol Of The Bells
Trans Siberian Orchestra

Who’d have thought that a heavy metal inspired instrumental act could have created one of the greatest Christmas pieces of all time?

Everything about the Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 1224 mix is incredible but it’s The Carol of the Bells that truly stands out as a Xmas great.

O Holy Night 
Pentatonix

And it wouldn’t be Christmas without a true carol, would it? And Pentatonix’s acapella format of O Holy Night is as close as pop music gets to carolling.

It’s lovely and the ideal music for just before you have a wonderful Christmas dinner with your family.

Last Words

Yes, we know, Christmas songs can become a bit wearisome over the holiday season but the best stand out and bear repeated listening with ease.

We like to listen to our Christmas songs on festively bedecked bookshelf speakers or if we’re aiming just to entertain ourselves on these awesome bone conduction headphones, but if you want to entertain your neighbours too, you could try these fantastic motorcycle speakers!
