Music is the one thing that can change your mood even if nothing else can. Feeling down? You either listen to sad music to make you sadder or happy music to perk you up. Feeling happy? You listen to upbeat songs to stay T’ed. Feeling festive and in the holiday spirit? Listen to this bomb Christmas playlist I’m about to give you. You don’t have to thank me.
Silent Night x The Temptations
This song right here is an indicator that it’s almost Christmas. It’s not really the Christmas season for real unless I hear this being played on the radio and at all the stores I’m doing my last-minute Christmas shopping in.
All I Want For Christmas Is You x Mariah Carey
A true Christmas bop. It doesn’t matter how many times it’s played, everybody gets up to sing and dance to it because it’s just that good. This is one that gets everybody, young and old, ready and in the holiday spirit.
This Christmas x Chris Brown
Not only does this song put me in a festive mood, but the movie “This Christmas” does too. You can’t ever go wrong with snuggling up with your family and watching it right around the holiday.
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town x Jackson 5
Pretty much everything the Jackson 5 put out was and still is iconic, especially music from their Christmas album. This is another one or those holiday bops that let you know Christmas is right around the corner.
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus x Jackson 5
Another bop from the Jacksons. According to Billboard, the Jackson 5 Christmas Album was the best selling Christmas album of 1970 and 1972. The whole album was amazing, tbh, but for the sake of the list I’ll only name two songs.
Let It Snow x Boyz II Men
Want to be in the spirit but don’t want to hear all the loud, energetic Christmas music? That ain’t no problem. Turn on some Boyz II Men and just vibe out. You’ll not only be getting in the spirit but you’ll be blessing your ears with a beautiful, soulful song.
And there you have it, a bomb, festive playlist. I’m expecting everyone who’s reading this to be extra jolly because I just gave y’all the magic key to really be in the spirit.
