The Top 10 Songs for Your Holiday Pop Playlist

November 28, 2016

1) Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

No Christmas party is complete without this song! Released in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has been a hit every single holiday season. In fact, even 21 years after its release, in December 2015, the song still reached #11 on Billboard Hot 100, marking its highest peak since its release. Besides that, it’s awesome seeing a young Mariah enjoying the snow in this throwback video!



2) Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande released this song as part of her first holiday EP, Christmas Kisses, in 2013, and it has been a hit every holiday season ever since. Since then, Ariana has released one other holiday EP, which is next on our list.



3) It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas - Michael Bublé

It’s almost Christmas, and that means ‘tis the season to listen to Michael Bublé. To my surprise,  he has plenty of music besides holiday tunes; however, I think we can agree on the fact that Michael is, by now, the king of modern Christmas music.



4) Winter Things - Ariana Grande

As part of her second Christmas EP, Christmas and Chill, this song really relates to winter time at UCLA: “Ain’t no ice and no chills, no snow men to build, most of my friends at the beach..” I had to stop myself from putting all of her songs on this list, because they’re all so great- check out December, also one of my favorites by Ariana!



5) Baby It’s Cold Outside - Idina Menzel & Michael Bublé

Released in 2014, this is a collaboration between two of the greatest classical voices in modern music. Plus, the music video is just adorable.



6) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Sam Smith

Sam Smith’s vocal talent is perfect for a Christmas song. His version of this classic is nothing short of his many other emotionally charged hits.



7) Little Drummer Boy - Pentatonix

Pentatonix never fails to deliver. Acapella is a rarity in the pop scene, and a holiday song featuring nothing but amazing voices and beatboxing is unique and extremely catchy.



8) Mistletoe - Justin Bieber

Some people love JB. Some people hate JB. Regardless, I think we can all agree that Justin has some catchy Christmas tunes.



9) Baby It's Cold Outside - Brett Eldredge (feat. Meghan Trainor)

As the newest song on this list, Brett’s deep vocals and Meghan’s skilled pop voice put a modern twist on a classic. The song is part of Brett’s latest Christmas album, which hasn’t even been released yet.



10) Do They Know It’s Christmas? - Band Aid 30 feat. Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin, Sam Smith & More

Have you ever hear a more star studded song? Sir Bob Geldof managed to get One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, and many more to collaborate on a Christmas song to raise money for victims of Ebola. Holiday music for a good cause: the true meaning behind the holiday season.
