ONLY A FEW DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!
We can hardly believe that Christmas is almost here, and it’s that time of the season where we are finally in the mood to listen to Christmas songs. We’ve been hearing them since October. But with several days to go, we are finally ready to sip on mulled wine and seriously get rockin’ around the Christmas tree.
So we’ve picked out our top 5 Christmas songs to jam out to this year and every holiday season. You need to be sure to mix these into your holiday party playlist for guaranteed good times and
All I Want For Christmas Is You
No matter where you are or what you’re doing you get a little bit giddy when this song comes on. It’s time to warm up your vocals and belt out this tune just like Mariah (okay, nothing like Mariah), but it’s decidedly the BEST way to get your Christmas party started.
Baby It’s Cold Outside
This classic is the original pick up line. Looking for a way to get that special somebody you’ve been eyeing up to stay the night? We know that in London it’s more like, ‘Baby, it’s London and it’s raining again and you’ve missed the last train.’ But we think you’ve got more potential this season with the original.
Fairytale of New York
Best lively Christmas pub song ever. There’s no way you hear this and don’t sort of break out into a weird little jig or link arms and sip on a pint. It’s The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl and the beautiful city of New York and let’s face it, we love any and all references to the second city that has stolen our hearts.
Jingle Bell Rock
We know what you’re thinking. It’s the Mean Girls Winter Talent Show! Alright, so over the years our song association has morphed quite a bit... You can’t hear Jingle Bell Rock and not think of the terrible foursome in their Santa outfits dancing on stage with Amy Poehler mom coaching in the aisle. Still, it’s shockingly festive and bonus points if you know the dance routine.
We sing it because every year this is seriously what we’re dreaming of. In London, a white Christmas is a rarity, but each year we hold out hope. This year could be our year!! If not, remember that Bond Street is an excellent substitute with the gorgeous twinkling lights.
