Christmas Songs to Get You in the Christmas Mood

Updated on October 3, 2013

Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit, or a festive mood, quicker than listening to Christmas music. There are so many wonderful Christmas songs performed by a variety of talented artists. There are traditional carols as well as modern songs that are non-religious and centered around a celebration theme.

I thought it would be fun to assemble all my Christmas favorites and share them with you just in case you're wanting to get into the Christmas spirit.

When I sat down to begin this project, this list was going to include my top ten Christmas songs. I knew I'd be able to easily come up with ten.

I soon realized I couldn't limit it to just ten.

So, I decided to make it my top twenty list of favorite Christmas songs.

I found I couldn't do that either. There are just too many songs that I like and Christmas wouldn't be the same without hearing them at least once.

So, here is KCC's top 20+ Christmas songs.

      I agree, Emievil. I don't know why she didn't last long here.

      Thank you KCC Big Country for this collection of Christmas music. I'm not able to listen to the music right now, but I will be back when I have more time to view the videos. Thanks again for sharing. You do know how to spread the spirit of Christmas.

      Emievil: I'll have to look for Sheena Easton Christmas songs. I haven't thought about her in a long time. My 17 yr old daughter absolutely loves "Last Christmas" too. That was her first introduction to George Michael and Wham.

      Alekhouse: I'm so glad I got you in the Christmas mood!

      Resspenser: I think they overplay some of these songs too, and that can certainly get annoying. Glad you enjoyed the rest of the list.

      Scott: This is certainly going to be a very special Christmas for you. May it be all you hope for and more. You deserve it.

      Thanks to all of you for stopping by!

      I've already started playing the Christmas music on my computer, in my defense though it's been 5 years since I was last able to celebrate Christmas.

      Excellent list except the Bruce Springsteen one! I like his music but this one just drives me nuts and they play it every other song on the radio around here from November 1 to December 26!!!!

      Great hub and loved the videos!

      Wow! What a lot of good Christmas music. You really helped me on my way to getting in the mood. I wasn't even going to put a tree up. Bah Humbug! But I've changed my mind...making Christmas cookies today and putting up the tree the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks for being a Christmas angel.

      Woot! I got here first. Love the Last Christmas song of Wham (sung it once in a singing contest :D) and All I Want for Christmas is You. There's another one - It's Christmas All Over the World Tonight (by Sheena Easton? don't know if I got the right title). This is a great list KCC. Thanks.
