Playlist Necessities: Christmas Music Part 2

Christmas PJs - Boohoo
Sweater - Urban Outfitters

One of my favorite things about this time of year is all the festive music. I'm that person who starts playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving, but with so many good tunes, can you blame me?! I will admit, however, that sometimes, you have to wade through the not-so-great covers to get to the amazing renditions you won't be able to stop listening to.

Between classics and more original songs that have been popping up, I wanted to do another playlist of some of my favorite Christmas songs. Limiting myself to only four last year was brutal. It's only right I share a few more. After all, as Buddy the Elf so expertly says, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

Like last year's playlist from boy bands to a capella groups, here are a few more songs to add to your queue for Christmas Day, apart from the classics.

I Don't Want to Spend Christmas Without You - *NSYNC
Can you tell I love boy bands? Just picture Justin Timberlake serenading you with a ballad, saying he doesn't want to spend one more Christmas without you. Sold yet?

Carol of the Bells - Destiny's Child
As much as I love my boy bands, I'm really here for my girl groups. Destiny's Child's Christmas album as a whole is perfection, but I picked this song for this list because just listen to those stripped down harmonies. Hark the herald angels sing, my friends.

One More Sleep - Leona Lewis
When you're to the final night before the greatest day of the year, Leona Lewis' "One More Sleep" is the perfect summation of excitement, anticipation, and joy. It's the right tempo to suit your restlessness when there's only one more sleep, but to also calm you enough to get through the night so Santa can stop by.

Cuddle Up - Catey Shaw
I actually just discovered this song while writing this post and I had my Spotify on shuffle to keep me in the festive spirits. I loved it so much that I had to include it! It's so true that in the cold weather and with all the love in the air from the spirit of giving, you just want to cuddle up on the couch with some hot cocoa and a Christmas movie.

What are some of your favorite holiday tunes?
