The build-up to Christmas is well and truly underway!

All this will be accompanied by the yearly cacophony of Christmas music playing out in the background as the Christmas fever takes hold in the run-up to the big day!
We’ve added a filter to all of this Christmas mania and came up with a list of classic Christmas tracks that have stood the test of time and really sum up what we love about Christmas time. We consider these songs to be the very embodiment of Christmas, this is why we love them so much! So, what are these festive tracks? Well, keep reading to find out…
1. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – Wizzard
There’s no escaping the wall to wall sound of this Christmas classic! Coming up to Christmas we’ll hear it in the shops, office party and on television. This is the way we want it; Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without it!
2. Holly Jolly Christmas – Michael Bublé
Steady ladies, Mr Velvet Voice has become something of a Christmas stalwart over the years! He’s taken his place among the Pantheon of Christmas greats and has become part of Christmas for many. Especially, with his reworking of Christmas classics.
3. All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
Presents, turkey and Mariah… It’s not Christmas without blasting this holiday classic loud enough so that the neighbours have no choice but to listen! This is the song that made her the ‘Queen of Christmas’! But we know as Christmas gets closer, we can’t help ourselves it has to be played!
4. Fairytale of New York – The Pogues (feat. Kirsty MacColl)
Has doomed romance ever sounded so festive? Well, this Irish ballad is bang on with its delivery! The slow build-up, romance, heartache, profanity and swaying choruses! This Christmas classic is still as fresh today, it has lost none of its grandeur over the years.
5. Last Christmas – Wham!
This is a song that has taken on a whole new meaning in recent years. But we still listen to it with fond memories and imagine travelling to a Scandinavian lodge for Christmas! Like a fine wine, this track continues to gain legendary status and new fans.
So, no matter what plans you have this Christmas. Make sure you’ve got our playlist in the background to make it a Merry little Christmas!
