8 Classic Christmas Songs

  • Bing Crosby White Christmas

    Its not hard to get lost in Crosbys sonorous reverie. Whether you grew up with white Christmases or not, this song will surely bring back childhood memories.

  • The Vince Guaraldi Trio Christmastime Is Here If that title doesnt ring any bells, well help you out: Its that jazzy number from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
  • John & Yoko, The Plastic Ono BandHappy Xmas (War Is Over) Originally written as a response to the war in Vietnam, this song didnt chart in its original release in 1971. After John Lennons assassination in 1980, the song peaked at #2 in Britain, and is now one of the most heavily covered Christmas songs.
  • Judy GarlandHave Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

    A timeless tearjerker, this tune from Meet Me in St. Louis is heartbreaking and beautiful.

  • Bruce Springsteen Santa Claus Is Coming to Town You might say this song is a little cheesy, or protest that its just a way for parents to make their kids behave the rest of the year (He knows if youve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!) but the Boss makes it rockin! He can do no wrong in our book.
  • Nat King Cole The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) Nat King Coles rich baritone glides through this song without hurry, and the effect is undeniably pleasant. All in all, youre guaranteed a warm, fuzzy feeling.
