Top 10 Best Christmas Songs

The Top Ten
1 Jingle Bell Rock

This is my favorite and I just opened this list and saw it! I love this song! It is so warm and nice and its amazing! It makes you get in the christmas spirit!

Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell rock
Jingle Bells Swing and Jingle Bell's Ring
Snowing and blowing, up bushels of fun,

This song is Christmas, it's sweet, upbeat, catchy, and is lovely to listen to. It's fun to dance along with as well. Truly the greatest song about this holiday ever written! That's the jingle bell, that's the jingle bell, that's he jingle bell rock!

For me this song is the best of them all. Even though Jingle Bells and We Wish You A Merry Christmas are pretty good too. I just love Christmas songs. Especially Jingle Bell Rock. I am so so so so happy he is on this list, really happy, yes! Now I have the song stuck in my head, laugh out loud. I have never heard Waiting For Christmas, but I am sure it is probably a very very good one. Ahhh, now I have lots of Christmas songs stuck in my head, help me!

Along with most versions of Santa Baby, Jingle Bell Rock is my very most hated Christmas song ever. It gets stuck in your head and never, ever leaves.

2 All I Want for Christmas is You

I LOVE this song! It is so catchy and jumpy, and that's my kind of song! Even better my budgie Theo loves this song SO much, he will trill, squawk, and chirp all throughout the song and for a while after it! I just love it so much, and it is one of my favorite songs

This song is the golden standard of Christmas music! There's no wonder why it's played every year as soon as it starts to get cold. Mariah Carey's voice is perfection!

This song is so catchy. It 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. Great song

I really love this Christmas song from Mariah Carey ! I am a big Mariah Carey fan and I love to dance this wonderful song , This is a classic and big favorite of mine

3 Waiting for Christmas

Bro, how is everything upvoted for this song? Pretty sure they sent in some spambots to write positive things about this song like crazy. No one has ever heard of this before.

Menowin is a remarkable newcomer with a very unique and impressive voice. Waiting for Christmas.. His second single release is a wonderful, emotional ballad and his voice goes straight to your heart. I'm looking forward to his 3rd single in january and his first album in spring 2012.

Menowin has a wonderful voice and his feeling for rhythm is fantastic. I'm looking forward for his first album and his live concerts in 2012. Whenever he speaks in interviews you can see his enthusiasm and his love for music. I wish him all the best!

This Christmas song is just beautiful. The best new one I have heard in a very long time. What an exceptionally good voice this guy has. The combination of voice and song is totally awesome. Perfect!

4 Silent Night

I mean, this song and his voice is great and all, but I'm not sure if I would put this against Josh's own "I'll Be Home for Christmas", "Believe", and "O Holy Night"...

This performance is reported in the media as 'most beautiful version of Silent Night ever sung' and I can only agree.

This song is so great and beautiful that it always brings tears to my eyes. It's so beautiful that it was even recognized as an "intangible cultural heritage" by UNESCO.

This such a great vocal performance of a song that reminds us of the meaning of Christmas.

5 White Christmas

Reminds me of Christmas Past, brings joy into Christmas Present and reminds me to pray for a better future Christmas for those who are far from home. Christmas can be a lonely time especially for our men and women in uniform.

This is ridiculous. "White Christmas" is the most famous Christmas song along with "Silent Night". Who's voting here. It must be a very young crowd. And "Jingle Bell Rock" is ahead of "Jingle Bells". I'm baffled.

Just keeps on putting people in the Christmas
Sprit - memories for young and for old. Powerful
Word pictures, and that's why every singer puts out
His take on the song.

Favourite version: Bing Crosby
This is a classic. Christmas just isn't Christmas without White Christmas, Holly Jolly Christmas, Jingle Bell Rock, etc.

6 Last Christmas

I love this song! I sing it all year round! Off course by now my family dread it because I sing it so much, if you think about it surely the love from last year was special as well... I love it so much so I don't care if people think it's rubbish or if it doesn't make sense, it's brilliant and catchy!

Last christmas I gave you my heart, But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year to save me from tears I give it to someone special.

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the ver next day, you sold it on EBay! This year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to Tesco extra, extra...

No? Ok..-.

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very last day, you gave it away!

7 Do They Know It's Christmas

This song is great along with its message. Not everyone can afford christmas toys, food, and presents. So we should be giving everything we can to help others.

This is better than Mariah Carey to be honest even though it's very overplayed during Christmas. Some Christmas songs get annoying, but I like this one along with a few others

This should come in at least top 2. I feel as if Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas" is slightly underrated.

This song should be much higher than top 7.

This song is my favourite ever christmas song. I mean, whats cooler than having all of the popular singers sing one big christmas song.

8 Jingle Bells

This song is for thanksgiving. Well, it was written for thanksgiving at least. Crying bells was written for Thanksgetting. Ok, I hate the classic.

When I hear this version I think of Arnold Schwarzenegger chasing down a Turbo Man doll since this version is in Jingle all the Way.

Everyone songs this song every Christmas! This song is the Christmas theme song! Hope can this possibly be #12?! This had to be on top!

The classic! Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way!

9 Fairytale of New York

Funny that the greatest Christmas song of all time would be about an extremely unpleasant couple hurling insults at each other. Because this is indeed the greatest Christmas song ever.

This is such a good song, it should at least be in the top ten. It's good because it's an alternative Christmas song and is about hard times at Christmas, and shows a different side to Christmas instead of just jolly songs.

I'm not a big fan of Christmas songs because in my household we never played them but I adore this.
It's the only song I actually like because it's so different and Kirsty had a wonderful voice!

This is a great Christmas song, The place where I work only ever plays 1 Radio station called Heart FM, They repeat this song again and again and again year after year. I swear I know every lyric to this song!

10 Carol of the Bells

This song brings me in the ultimate Christmas mood, really by Trans Siberian Orchestra! I play this song on the piano so much, and you can even make your own version too!

This song is catchy it is my favorite, I am listening to it right now! it makes it feel like Christmas already and it is the best song ever can not believe it is not on the top ten!?

I listen to this over and over. It's the only Christmas song I truly love, actually. The version doesn't really matter to me.

If you count Family Force 5's version, then I guess this is one of the best Christmas songs.

The Contenders
11 Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

I love Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. He is my favorite person in his movie. I think that he should win first place in the top ten Christmas countdown.

It's the best Christmas song in my book. Its entertaining for adults and kids. It makes me happy when I listen to it, unlike songs like Silent Night

You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all...

It's a fun song to sing at Christmas. I like the story of Rudolph.

12 O Holy Night

This song moves me incredibly. The music is incredible, and so is the tune. I love playing it on the piano. I also love all the classics and some modern ones like Chestnuts roasting on an open fire and White Christmas. But does anybody know what "Do they know its Christmas" even means? It probably insults about a million people-including me. It is a catchy tune, though.

NOBODY, absolutely NOBODY, sings this as beautifully as Miss Jacqueline Marie Evancho - incredibly emotional performance, her stellar voice having a power so profound that brought me to tears several times. An incredible singer that stuns your senses and commands your full attention.

I personally prefer Josh's nice and deep bass, sufficient high notes, and slight accent. I feel that his version is better, though I may simply be biased towards male singers. But this is better than any of the songs above.

Why don't I see anybody here praising Josh Groban for the song...he sang gospels in the church his entire life and sung this song from the depths of his heart but still No mention of him!

13 Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town

This is a wonderful song to learn about Santa Claus , I always thought that Santa was invisible but now I think he is real in your heart ! I really love this fun song

Santa is a sinister elf who convicts children of thought crime.

It tells kids you better be good or else you won't get presents...

I agree it should be in top five many even the top three...

14 The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir..."
You tell me your not in a Christmas mood when you hear that? Ok then...

When I was a baby, when I used to cry (no matter the time of year) my father put on this song on our living room loud speakers and I would go into some type of trance and stared off into space... good times ;).

This is 11th. I meant to vote for "Happy Holiday / Holiday Season" by Andy Williams but I couldn't find it.

This song and Nat King Cole in general has emotional significance to my family. My grandpa diedover 20 years before I was born and he loved this song

15 Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

I love Rockin' Around the Christnams Tree becuase it really enlightens the family part of Christmas, which is by far the most important. All the cheesy Christmas movie and family card game night for Christmas is brought out by it. It's an uplifting and happy song and 15 is way too low a rank for it.

Love it! Especially the Brenda Lee version! Played that on the guitar and sang it. This song should no doubt be no. 1 by a long shot!

By far the best. Very energetic and classic. Considering it is the fourth most played Christmas song it is strange that it's 15th

This song has raised spirits all over the world, this song is truly the song of Christmas. marry Christmas Brenda lee

16 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Please, everybody, listen to the Frank Sinatra version of this song.

It's my personal favorite although all other versions of course are awesome to listen to as well. It literally gives me goosebumps for how amazingly he sings it. Listening to Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas gives me endless memories of playing in the snow, a beautiful Christmas tree in the house, everybody cheery and enjoying the holiday spirit. "Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dead to us gather near to us once more". This line summarizes the spirit of Christmas and why even non-Christians love it so dearly. Because it's about spending what little time we have with each other and to think of the good times. So thanks for reading "and have yourself, a merry little Christmas, now."

I love this song. Every time I hear it, I think of a warm fireplace, and a glistening Christmas tree, and a family gathered together around the fire, just happy to be with each other, and all of my worries just wash away. This song makes me so happy, and at the same time, a little sad, because I think of that beautiful scene, and I wish I could be there; it's just that good. Every time I listen to this song, I cry, and it's the only time I've ever cried, and at the same time, felt so incredibly happy. The song is just so powerful, but in a way that is just so calm and peaceful, and beautiful. This song always helps me put my life into perspective, regardless of what time of year it is, because it reminds me of what really matters, and the little things? Forget about them.
I love this song, and if you're ever getting stressed out about anything, whether it's a huge test coming up, or a job interview, or financial difficulties, or anything, do me a personal favor: listen to this ...more

I cannot express it better than the two I read at the top. It brings me a moment of thoughtful peace.

This is another one that goes on my Favorite Christmas Songs List.

17 Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

I'm very upset that this isn't here. I mean, when they don't over exaggerate every syllable and slow it down to a snail's pace, this song is very uplifting and nice!

Should be higher up in the list. I always hear the Dean Martin version of it (which is still good), but I like the frank sinatra cover of it a bit more

This song is really enjoyable, fun to sing and it is very danceable especially when Jessica Simpson sings it . I really love this song so much .

I'd love Your Favorite Martian to perform this song.

18 It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

No song says Christmas like this holiday classic, whoever doesn't like this song is stupid, and whoever does like it is my friend and will be invited to gatherings in the future. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

I only like this song when it is played at the end of a Christmas movie that I like called it's the most wonderful time of the year. it's a hallmark movie. when hallmark starts playing its Christmas movies look for it it is so good.

This song is the most jolly, high-spirited Christmas song ever.

I like Andy's, but have you heard of Johnny Mathis' version or Pentatonix's version?

19 Blue Christmas

I played this song over & over & over when my grandpa died. I was so sad. that was 14 years ago and I still miss him so much.

A sad Christmas song that's actually really good. This should be at least top 15.

20 Deck the Halls

Are you kidding me! Top ten. No questions asked

This should be number 1! best song ever!

21 Feliz Navidad

Why is this so low? This is one of my favourite Christmas songs!

How does no one like this song?

Because Dora sings it

22 Winter Wonderland

I really love this amazing song during Christmas , this awesome says all of the fun things to do in the snow like making a snow man and playing in the snow !

I like the one where that one girl sings this song. I did a dance to this song in a parade.

Catchy, lovely and just outright good, even though it's summer during Christmas where I'm from this is still my favourite Christmas song

This is a very good song!

23 Wonderful Christmastime

The keyboard at the beginning of this always makes me smile, it's one of those special Christmas songs that always get you in a festive mood!

I love the beginning and the mood it sets. Paul McCartney and the Wings' greatest song by far.

Why is this so low at number 80, this is one of my favourite Christmas songs.

24 You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch

Grinch is and absolute classic. It should at least be in the top 15. Side note, they are making a Grinch horror movie and I am EXCITED

Oh what a fun song this enjoyable song I really love this fun, enjoyable silly song this fun song is about the Grinch and I love this song especially since Jim Carey is so awesome with his sense of humor. This fun song is a treat to listen to during the holidays

I hate this song! I'm decorating the tree happily, listening to music, in the Christmas spirit, when on comes a song where a guy is telling a grinch that his heart is a dead tomato. Totally WRECKED my mood!

I absolutely love this song and whenever listen to this fun Christmas song I think Jim Carey ! This awesome great song makes me laugh because it has fun humor . This is a definite must listen

25 Santa Baby

Heard this recently and oh YUCK yuck yuck! How sleazy and revolting. definitely NOT a great song. I defy anyone not to need a bucket when listening to this gem.

Such a banger, one of the few Christmas songs that BANGS and you can click your fingers to. Very sneaky tune.

How is this not higher? It's a great song and deserves better!

This song makes me want to stab the car radio.
