Tunes Tuesday:  Winter Holiday Songs

Do you get excited when the radio stations start playing holiday music?  I definitely do – it’s my favorite time of year!  December has come so quickly, and while life gets busy, there’s something about Christmas music that makes things so much more cheerful!

I have always loved Christmas songs.  We have so many great classics, but for my playlist, I thought I’d share a few more contemporary holiday songs.  And if you visit my Tunes Tuesday posts regularly, you know how much I love some cheesy pop music!  I have to admit that I’ve been playing my Spotify playlist over and over and loving it!  I’m looking forward to seeing what you enjoy so I can continue to add to the list!

Featured Songs:  Christmas Music Playlist

I'm sharing some of my favorite songs on my Christmas music playlist for this month's Tunes Tuesday! Find more running music playlists at!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays – *NSYNC:  Of course this was the first addition to my list.  I loved this song before I even knew who *NSYNC was!

All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey:  It’s a classic and at this point, probably one of my favorite MC songs!

Kiss Me at Midnight –  *NSYNC:  Yes, they are on my playlist twice, no shame!

White Christmas – CeeLo Green:  This is a really nice, soulful version of the classic song.

What Christmas Means to Me – Stevie Wonder:  Stevie is amazing, as we all know, but there’s something about those jingling bells that get me every time!

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus – The Jackson 5:  How can you not love this song?  Little Michael!

Someday at Christmas – Stevie Wonder:  Amazing, heartfelt lyrics.

Santa’s Coming for Us – Sia:  I really like this new jam from Sia, I still need to hear the rest of her album!

O Come, All Ye Faithful – Pentatonix:  I had no idea that they are so popular!  I really do enjoy their take on this classic!

Mistletoe – Justin Bieber:  Didn’t I say I had no shame?  This song is catchy, I can’t help it!

Happy Xmas (War Is Over) – John Lennon:  I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always loved this song!

Underneath the Tree – Kelly Clarkson:  I could hear her sing anything!

My Only Wish (This Year) – Britney Spears:  Another fun song I had to add to the list!

Sleigh Ride – TLC:  The three ladies just being themselves and having so much fun!

Last Christmas – Wham!:  This is another great, well-written song!

This Christmas – Donny Hathaway:  Another classic that I couldn’t omit from my Christmas playlist!
