Well, whadduya know... It's post number 101, and I'm finally back to stay now that I have the most hectic semester of my life out of my way!
Plus Christmas is coming. HEHE. Christmas is my favoritEST season of the year (I like it more than my birthday!) with all the decorations, the atmosphere and the peppermint mocha frappuccinos from Starbucks... (no snow here in Singapore, sadly)
Since I love Christmas, I decided it is ultimately necessary for me to craft a playlist for the rest of you Christmas lovers out there, so here are the top 10 Christmas Songs I love. (FYI, most are from pretty long ago...)
#1 All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
This is a Christmas classic for me. I HAVE TO listen to this multiple times every year. Apart from the fact that the song itself is one of my favorites,Mariah Carey just sings it in such a way that makes me want to sing and dance along to... or it could be something that's just me.
#2 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Christina Aguilera
Another one of my all time favorite Christmas songs by one of my favorite singers on this planet. This song is smooth and sexy.... it makes me want to cuddle.... I'm really starting to think I'm having a weird phenomenon with Christmas songs.
#3 Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Michael Bublé
Who can forget Michael Bublé when it comes to Christmas music? There's an obvious reason why his Christmas album tops the charts every year during this season. Personally, I love all of Michael Bublé's Christmas songs, but I just had to pick something I loved (and isn't on this list), so here this goes. Who can resist his voice (and his looks)?
#4 Hark! The Herald Angels Sing by Carrie Underwood
Yes, I do know my playlist is pretty mainstream, but who doesn't love Carrie Underwood? I'm not exactly a religious person, but her clean voice, this soothing song... I'd use this to soothe my nerves any day, sing to it... or fall asleep with it. One of my absolute must listen to songs when it comes to Christmas songs.
#5 My Only Wish (This Year) by Britney Spears
Yes, Britney Spears. This song is such a fun song to dance and sing along to... Definitely a song to bring up the Christmas spirit... Plus it always makes me happy instantaneously! It's like the cure for all things bad this season with it's upbeat, catchy tune. (I think I hear my brothers judging me... psh)
#6 Santa Baby by Colbie Caillat
I love the song 'Santa Baby'! I know, I know. It's really about this materialistic woman who's asking her sugar daddy for all the expensive stuff, but it's one sexy Christmas song! Plus it's soothing, so I don't really care that much about the lyrics... as long as I'm not that materialistic
#7 White Christmas by Kelly Clarkson
I need to stop using 'I love', but I really can't resist it. I LOVE THIS SONG TOO! This comes from Kelly Clarkson's latest Christmas album, Wrapped in Red. Although we don't have white Christmases in Singapore, a girl can dream right? (In this case I'm really hoping to get my white Christmas in Korea this year!)
#8 I'll Be Home For Christmas by Drew Seeley
If you don't know who Drew Seeley is, he's this actor/singer who sings on Disney. Or at least he used to. I really enjoy the beats of this song (YES! I stopped using 'love), and it's definitely one of the songs that have been on replay on my playlist. It's been a song I have been listening to for years... Definitely one of my favorite Christmas songs (regardless of who's singing)!
#9 Celebrate Love by Jordan Pruitt
Another ex-Disney singer. If you don't know her, she did appear on the 3rd season of The Voice, and was on Xtina's team before she got eliminated in the Battle Rounds (that really pissed me off). It's such a peaceful, soothing song by such a sweet sounding vocalist. I absolutely love Jordan Pruitt.
#10 Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass by All Time Low
Hahaha. I just had to put this in. It's the one 'Christmas' song I sing along to ALL THE TIME (partially cos it pisses my mom off in a totally jokingly manner)! Then I start bursting out into laughter after singing it cos this song just tickles me. (Though most of the time it's probably my mom's reaction to this song) I think this counts as a Christmas song... It has the whole Christmas-like tune to it, but it could just be my twisted imagination. If you haven't already listened to it, knock yourself out.
Enjoy the playlist!
