My Top 15 Christmas Songs

I LOVE Christmas music, it really gets me in the festive spirit, so trying to keep it to less than 100,000 was HARDย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I love Christmas songs SOOOOOO much, wherever I am during December, they’re blasting out. I’m sharing a few of my ultimate faves with you…the ones that really get me in the festive spirit, remind me of someone special or just make me insanely happy! They’re in no particular order…enjoy!

1. FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORKย – I mean, it HAD to make the list!

2. CHRISTMAS WRAPPINGย – I don’t know why, but I’ve loved this since I was a kid!

3. THAT’S WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS TO ME – I first heard it a couple of years ago and now it’s up there with my top faves! I’m using it with one of my classes and I just can’t get enough of it! It’s perfect for dancing to๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป

4. STEP INTO CHRISTMASย – PURE JOY!

5. WOMBLING MERRY CHRISTMASย – This has been mine and my dad’s song for as long as I can remember, so however daft it is, I love it coz it makes me think of my daft Dad and I jigging round the living room ๐Ÿ™ˆ

6. DRIVING HOME FOR CHRISTMASย – Mama P’s favourite, such a lovely song, and it makes me so happy. It always reminds me of herย ๐Ÿ’•

7. SAVIOUR’S DAYย – This started out ironically a few years ago as my brother and I cackled at the music video…but now when I hear the song, it reminds me of the fun Todd and I have. So it fills me with joy ๐Ÿ˜‚

8. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODYย – It isn’t Christmas without Slade!

9. HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMASย – So many artists have covered this song, I love them all coz I love the song so much…but this is my current favourite version.

10. I WISH IT COULD BE CHRISTMAS EVERYDAYย – It isn’t Christmas without the Andrex puppy song!

11. BELIEVEย – How could we forget about The Polar Express?! And that time I did a ballet solo to this and my skirt fell off half way through…ย ๐Ÿ™ƒ

12. CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME)ย – Specifically this version, along with the rest of this Phil Spector album, because it reminds me of Christmases with my family ๐Ÿค—

13. LIGHT THE NIGHTย – Because it’s pretty much been unofficially labelled as the Studio’s Christmas song…it’s come out every Christmas in various forms (shows, outdoor performances etc) for years now, so it’s not Christmas for me without hearing it!

14. IN DULCI JUBILOย – You can’t sing along to it unfortunately (maybe whistle though), but is anyone else in agreement that this little number really makes you feel merry? ๐Ÿ˜Š

15. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST; BUBLE. Any Buble. But this one reminds me of my Bish โค๏ธ

Did your fave songs make the list? As I said, there’s SO many more I could’ve added, but these are all quite special to me!ย ๐ŸŽ…

10 Bangers to Blast Out This Summer

Since this is the first summer of being a car owner, I’m finally able to experience the glory of having the windows down, sunnies on, music blasting out… It’s nice isn’t it?! My favourite drives have been the ones over to work in Wakefield on a Sunday morning. Admittedly the window hasn’t been down for the 30 minutes I spend on the motorway, but the music’s still been pumpingย ๐Ÿ˜‚

I’ve given you my top 10, each one linked to the song on YouTube, so you can go and have a listen if you fancy! SO…

1. Shotgun – George Ezra

I’m starting with a song that whenever it gets listened to in the future, we’ll always remember the heatwave of 2018. An absolute car banger.

2. 2002 – Anne-Marie

It’s cute, fun to sing along to, and we’re virtually the same age so it’s one of those half relatable ‘aww’ kinda songs.

3. Barcelona – Max George

A song that’s just filled with those pure summer vibes.

4. Flames – David Guetta and Sia

Again, fab to sing along to in the car, especially the riffs.

5. Better When I’m Dancing – Meghan Trainor

It’s not current I know, but I’ve just happened across it and it’s giving me such happy vibes! Definitely going to be adding this to my Mini Movers Street Dance playlist!

6. I’ll Be There – Jess Glynne

This one I really wasn’t sure about to start off with, but the yodelling has grown on me.

7.ย Wavey – CliQ feat. Alika

One with a gorgeous bass – bass so bass-y that if I was a pedestrian and heard it blasting out of a car, I’d roll my eyes at the driverย ๐Ÿ˜‚

8. So Young – The Corrs

Onto the throwbacks now. And whoever says they don’t like the Corrs IS A LIARย ๐Ÿ˜‚

9. Party in the USA – Miley Cyrus

I’m pretty sure out of all of my choices, this’ll be the one to label as my ‘Guilty Pleasure Song‘.

10. Lovefool – The Cardigans

And an incredibly special song for my fam. Our ‘Holiday Song’ from 199…7? I’m just guessing because it came out in Autumn 1996. It’s forever been labelled as our song and always reminds me of happy childhood holidays, I mean, it’s that special, it’s making it to our Wedding Playlist, so no hatersย โœ‹

I’m actually quite proud (getting to the end of the list) that there’s not many chav beats on there – which I DO love listening to whilst I’m driving, not gonna lie. Publishing at the beginning of August, it’ll probably change in a couple of weeks let’s be honest. When I rediscover an old Cascada album or somethingย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Please feel free to share any song recommendations below, with my job I’m always open to new music suggestions!
