Best Interpretations of Christmas Songs

The Top Ten

1 Carol of the Bells - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

The one that plays at the Saks light show in NYC is better.

Honestly, I could listen to this version of the song any day of the week, even when it isn't Christmas, just as a regular song. It's that good - ProPanda

I agree with that - Trans-Siberian Orchestra are awesome. - Metal_Treasure

2 Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande Cover Art

You know how a song can be so awful, that it's amazing? Well, in a holiday example, this is the perfect scenario. - ProPanda

3 Xmas Time of the Year- Green Day

Green Day's attempt at a Chirstmas song. You should know what I think by now - ProPanda

4 Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee Cover Art

Ok, now this is a classic! - ProPanda

5 All I Want for Christmas is You - Mariah Carey All I Want for Christmas is You - Mariah Carey Cover Art

Mariah has had bigger hits than this. She has been acclaimed for more than this. But in my opinion, this song is her biggest classic. - ProPanda

6 Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Various Artists Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Various Artists Cover Art

I'm sorry, this is too awesome for me to hate! - ProPanda

7 Santa Baby - Taylor Swift Santa Baby - Taylor Swift Cover Art

Yeah, don't shoot me, but I really love this. It seems to really bring the holiday cheer - ProPanda

8 Santa Claus is Comin' to Town - Bruce Springsteen Santa Claus is Comin' to Town - Bruce Springsteen Cover Art

Another great verison of this classic - ProPanda

9 Someday at Christmas - Jackie Evancho Someday at Christmas - Jackie Evancho Cover Art
10 We Three Kings - Halford We Three Kings - Halford Cover Art

ProPanda, I didn't know you don't like fast-paced songs and added this one - I adore it but this tempo isn't for you, I guess. However, this song adds some variety to your list and some other people may actually like it, who knows. - Metal_Treasure

I love fast paced songs, just when it suits the vibe right (for me at least) - ProPanda

THis is one is great though! - ProPanda

The Contenders

11 Must Be Santa - Bob Dylan Must Be Santa - Bob Dylan Cover Art

One of the few times I like Dylan's voice - ProPanda

12 Rocking Around the Christmas Tree - Joe Lynn Turner, Simon Wright, Bruce Kulick, Bob Kulick, Rudy Sarzo Rocking Around the Christmas Tree - Joe Lynn Turner, Simon Wright, Bruce Kulick, Bob Kulick, Rudy Sarzo Cover Art

I like this modernized and rocked out version. - Metal_Treasure

ProPanda, peace is already here - Metal_Treasure

Great beat, classic lyrics, but the tempo and over efforted vocals kill it for me. 3.5/5

Sorry Metal Treasure about that other list by the way, should've labeled it Elititsts only not Metalheads, I hope this holiday list can give us peace. - ProPanda
