Hi guys, so today I thought I would do something different and tell you my top 10 favorite festive songs. . I have been listening to Christmas songs since late November because I have been feeling really festive this year and I have up with a list of which ones are my ultimate favorites of 2016. This list is in a random order. I hope that you guys enjoy and without further ado let’s get started!
All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
This song is an absolute classic and I have literally listened to it everyday and I am totally obsessed with it. Mariah Carey has been one of my favorite artists for a very, very long time because her vocals are absolutely amazing and the fact that she can hit such high notes with just her voice without any computer effects absolutely astounds me. Her voice is genuinely amazing and this song is perfect. It is so jolly and festive and I can’t believe at how famous this song has been over the past few years. I love how this song is produced and even though the video is so simple, it is also very effective. I love this song because it is ridiculously amazing and festive.
Jingle Bell Rock – Glee Cast Edition
This original version of this song is legendary but the Glee Cast version just makes me smile a little bit more because the sound and vocals are a lot crisper and sound a lot more modern. I have watched all six seasons of Glee around 3-4 times and this is one of my favorite performances of the whole show because it is so festive and perfect. This was performed by Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) and also The Cheerios who are the Cheerleaders in the TV Series. The video is flawless because there is dancing and festivity but there is so much amazing singing and that all makes it the perfect songs.
Fairytale Of New York – The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
This is such a beautiful Christmas song but before I heard this song, I had never heard of the Pogues or Kirsty MacColl but I can come to the conclusion that they are amazing artists. This song is so touching and it it is so sentimental and I have no words on how to describe it. I love this song because it is festive but it also has a very special message about togetherness in it which is amazing because I have not heard a Christmas song that isn’t completely focused on Christmas before. I love this song for many different reasons.
I hope that you guys enjoyed and I will see you guys next time with another blog post. Bye!
