What Christmas Songs Should I Be Listening To This Year?

Let’s get right into it. There are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of Christmas songs you can spend your holiday listening to. Let’s narrow it down to some that will hopefully please the majority of the guests enjoying your “homemade” eggnog.  The holiday season should be a time of gathering and cheerfulness. To spice up your holidays with family and friends, use the radio or streaming service to bring in that holiday joy. Read this blog to find our suggestions for the best holiday music.

The Top Hits

Firstly, “Baby Please Come Home” by U2 is one of our favorites. Classic U2 blended with Christmas music tropes in an excellent rendition of a timeless Christmas song. Next, “What a Wonderful Christmas” and “Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas” are two perfect Christmas jazz albums for having company over.  Everyone can appreciate the greats like these 2, and you can almost feel the light snowfall and candles in the window with these two.  Finally, when the day of Christmas finally comes, we recommend a fantastic public radio station that plays 48 hours of hand-picked Christmas music on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 88.9 Radio Milwaukee has a handful of fantastic DJs who pick some delicious lesser-known jams perfect for your speakers while unwrapping presents. To access, download the TuneIn Radio app on iPhone or Android and enjoy. This could be a great new holiday tradition! Merry Christmas all!

Classic Holiday Music

Christmas has a rich musical tradition, and many classic songs will surely get you in the holiday spirit. While you’re likely to hear ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ and ‘Fairytale of New York’ quite a bit this season, there are plenty of other great tunes to enjoy. Here are some additional classic Christmas songs that you might want to add to your playlist:

  • ‘Jingle Bells’ by James Lord Pierpont
