Top 10 Modern Christmas Songs


The Top Ten

1 White Christmas - Bing Crosby
2 Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms
3 Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon
4 O 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

5 Rockin' 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

6 Do They Know It's Christmas Time - Band Aid
7 We Three Kings - Halford

Just perfect - Rob Halford never disappoints. - Metal_Treasure

8 Last Christmas - Wham!

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

9 Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade
10 The 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

11 Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley
12 All 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

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