“We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” 

The familiar melody reminds us that Christmas Day is coming on the fourth Sunday this mouth. People are going to make preparation for Christmas meals, Christmas trees, Christmas cards, Christmas gifts, etc. to welcome the coming of the Christmas holiday. Wait a minute, we can’t forget about one of the most important things we get to experience during Christmas: the Christmas songs. There is nothing quite like Christmas songs that make your holiday brighter and merrier.

A good Christmas song can melt the heart of even the steeliest Grinch, from hardened hipster to a grumpy grandpa. So here are top 10 Christmas songs recommended for you that focus on secular Christmas themes, such as winter scenes, family gatherings, and Santa Claus. This list includes almost all genres of music, like pop, rock, R&B, country and children’s Christmas songs. I hope these Christmas songs can brighten your holiday.

1. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey

This is by far one of my favorite Christmas songs ever! This song is so catchy and gets you in the Christmas spirit from the moment you hear it. It is lively, upbeat and happy, and gets you in a good mood. The song is inevitably racking up more and more cover versions as its popularity continues to mount and it’s achieved classic status. Mariah Carey is a fully-deserved queen of Christmas songs! Every Christmas, when I want to listen to Christmas songs, I will pick this song as my first choice.

     2. “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande

    The lyrics are an interesting twist on the old Christmas lyrical standard of “I want love for Christmas,” and addresses the question. What happens after the mistletoe has been taken down? Is there any guarantee for non-snowy love? The song’s lyrics tell us a sad love story, but with a bright melody. Santa also has no answer about the question of “if he really cares.” Ariana’s voice makes the Christmas ambience cuter and the epitome of lovely.

      3. “Mary, Did You Know” by Pentatonix

      The hearts of children and parents alike will be stirred by this wistful, insightful, and awe-inspiring narrative of the extraordinary life of Jesus. “Mary, Did You Know?” will give rich enjoyment to your family’s time together, not just during Christmas, but during any day of the year. This incredible and breathtaking song has magic and power and will bring you to tears when you listen it.

        4. “Christmas Canon” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

        The song is the perfect combination between the Christmas theme and Canon just like its name “Christmas Canon” suggests. The beautiful piano and violin melody, along with harmonies of children’s chorales, create such a heart-warming atmosphere in the cold snowy winter night that easily brings you into the happy mood of the Christmas season.

          5. “Someday at Christmas” by Stevie Wonder & Andra Day

          It was originally released in 1967 and the title track still remains relevant today. Especially during troubled times, the song is an elegant and eloquent hope for a world that is filled with peace, equality, and free from poverty, hatred, and hunger. The song was referring to the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement, but the lyrics can easily be applied to the state of the world today.

            6. “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” by Bruce Springsteen

            Even though there are various memorable versions of this Christmas classic, like the versions performed by Crystals and The Jackson 5, our favorite rendition of the 1934 song is still from Bruce and the E Street Band. It just wouldn’t sound like the holidays without Bruce Springsteen and this holiday staple is the oldest Christmas song (1934) on our list of the top 10 Christmas songs. The classic surpassed the test of time and will never be out of style.

              7. “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms

              Such a fun and festive song! As one of the classic Christmas songs, the song is joyful and cheerful and it always fills me up with Christmas cheer. If we say that “ Jingle Bell” is the song for children, “Jingle Bell Rock” is definitely the version that’s for adults. When it appeared in the movie Home Alone, it became an instant holiday classic.

                8. “It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Michael Bublé

                Michael Bublé’s voice is as classic as the gramophone and he has actually been one of the few singers that’s made his own standards. The song is absolutely eloquent and simple and his talent doesn’t feel like it is wasted. His voice is one of kind and makes for an enjoyable time when listening to this Christmas song. For people who like to remember the past, the song is deserving of being listened to again and again.

                  9. “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen

                  The song lays dormant in Cohen’s vast repertoire for more than a decade. Leonard Cohen has always been ambiguous about what his “Hallelujah” is about, with its sexual scenery and its religious symbolism. “This world is full of conflicts and full of things that cannot be reconciled,” Cohen has said. “But there are moments when we can reconcile and embrace the whole mess, and that’s what I mean by ‘Hallelujah’.”

                    10. “Little Drummer Boy” by Pentatonix

                    The version of David Bowie and Bing Crosby is well-known by most people, but the cover by Pentatonix is also very beautiful and creative. Their voices touch your soul and make you remember the true meaning of Christmas. This group is amazing. Their harmonies and their ability to blend so well shows a true dedication to their craft. If you love the traditional song, you will love their version even more.

                      If you want to brighten your holiday, don’t hesitate to visit iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, or any other music sites, and download your favorite Christmas songs for better enjoyment. Merry Christmas to all of you!
