“Hallelujah” – Pentatonix

Although this song has been covered a million times, Pentatonix’s version from their third Christmas album, A Pentatonix Christmas, is by far the greatest. The harmonies, the chords and the arrangements are sure to give you goosebumps after every listen.

“Jingle Bell Rock” – Daryl Hall & John Oates

A classic song that will be sure the get everyone singing and dancing. No one can resist this holiday classic.

“Santa Tell Me” – Ariana Grande

Although not a common song on holiday playlists, Grande’s pop musical genre and energetic tune is sure to keep your party going and create an uplifting mood.

“That’s Christmas to Me” – Pentatonix

Yes, I know, they’re here again. I can’t help it – all Pentatonix’s holiday songs are fantastic. But this one fills a person with that nostalgic feeling that only the holidays can bring and is sure to make everyone feel grateful for where they are.

“Santa Baby” – Kylie Minogue

This song is here for if you need a moment to slow things down. It’s upbeat enough that the mood won’t die, but it will also give everyone a moment to sit back and enjoy the tunes for a minute.

“Last Christmas” – Wham!

One of the catchiest Christmas songs out there and probably the most famous. Everyone will be singing it all night!

“Text Me Merry Christmas” – Straight No Chaser (feat. Kristen Bell)

This song does not get enough recognition. A modern-day Christmas love song about texting. It’s funny, fresh and sure to make everyone smile at least once.

“Feliz Navidad” – José Felicano

Just when you thought the party couldn’t get any better, it does. This song, like so many of the others, gets people on their feet and dancing, having the best time of their lives.

“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” – Michael Bublé

Like most of the songs here, it’s classic. And Michael Bublé is the king of Christmas, so he should be here at least once.

And finally:

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” – Mariah Carey

This song is incredible. Enough said.

Now that you have this, go out and rock on! And remember, it’s never too early to start playing holiday music!
