Top 10 Modern Christmas Songs

Martinglez

The Top TenXW

1Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms
2White Christmas - Bing Crosby
3Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon
4Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee

This song was recorded in 1958 and to be honest, it's too far from my understanding of 'modern'. - Metal_Treasure

5Do They Know It's Christmas Time - Band Aid
6O Come O Come Emmanuel - Theocracy

Released in 2007. I'm sure this is the best and most beautiful modern version of a Christmas song. Awesome vocals from Matt Smith and a great new arrangement. The style is progressive power metal. - Metal_Treasure

7Last Christmas - Wham!

This should be number one! I love this song so much! - RockFashionista

8Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade
9We Three Kings - Halford

Just perfect - Rob Halford never disappoints. - Metal_Treasure

10The Little Drummer Boy - Christopher Lee

The well know actor Christopher Lee became a metalhead in his late 80s and even recorded metal albums at 90! His bassy singing voice is pretty impressive for a 90 yo guy! - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley
12All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy

This is a really new song and it isn't a cover. Lyrics are quite odd but funny. The song refers to the economic situation in the US circa 2010.

"Well Santa had to close up his workshop
Sometime after Christmas '09
'Cause sadly the economy's a mess and jobs are hard to find
...
Santa went to work in a coal mine
And the irony is perfectly clear
He's got zero toys for the girls and boys
I guess we've all been bad this year" - Metal_Treasure

13Christmas Griping - R.E.M.
14Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea
15Wynter Fever - Theocracy
16Mistress for Christmas - AC/DC
17Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
18O Holy Night - Celine Dion
19Walking In the Air - Jackie Evancho
20My Grown Up Christmas List - Kelly Clarkson
