Top Ten Tuesday: Some of My Favorite Holiday Music

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Books I Hope Santa Brings

Since Christmas (for those who celebrate) is in 2 days, I’m going to change things up and do something non book related. Today, I’m sharing with you:

Some of My Favorite Holiday Music

These are songs I’ve got playing on my Spotify Playlist. Videos shared are from YouTube.

1. Come On, Ring Those Bells
Artist: Evie

This is an old school favorite from my childhood when we listened to this album on a RECORD PLAYER. *gasp*

2. River
Arist: Sarah McLachlan

I’m a big fan of Sarah McLachlan’s voice, and I love what it does to this song.

3. All I Want for Christmas Is You
Arist: Mariah Carey

How could this not make a holiday music list for anyone who grew up in the 90’s?

4. Last Christmas
Artist: Wham

Much love for this one!

5. Grown-Up Christmas List
Artist: Amy Grant

This is another one that reminds me of my childhood.

6. Hot Chocolate
Artist: Tom Hanks

I adore this one because my daughter used to make us watch the movie year round and she would dance to this song when she was like 2.

7. O Holy Night
Artist: Christina Aguilera

I have this CD from when it originally came out. I always liked this version.

8. Mary Did You Know
Artists: Pentatonix

I could have put any and all Pentatonix holiday albums on here. I especially love this version they did.

9. Winter Song
Artist: Sarah McLachlan

And we’re back to Sarah McLachlan. Love this one.

10. Silent Night
Artist: Jessica Simpson

I actually really love this entire album and her voice on it.

  1. I hadn’t heard some of these in so long. I love the first one, I had never heard it before, it sure is catchy and has a great message. Great share Deanna.

    1. That first one is straight out of the 70s. My mom used to play the entire RECORD of it. All of her songs on that album are similar in message. Thanks!

    1. Yes, RECORDS! My mom always played the Evie album. I can’t hear her songs without thinking of being a kid at Christmas.

  2. Ooh, I like your off-topic post this week. I wish I had thought of it. My mom and I were just listening to Pentatonix’ Mary Did You Know last night. It’s gorgeous! And Amy Grant’s holiday music is the soundtrack of all my childhood Christmases.

  3. O HOLY NIGHT and MARY, DID YOU KNOW? are two of my all-time favorite Christmas songs. It’s obvious when you look at my Christmas playlist on Spotify – I’ve got numerous renditions of both 🙂 I actually haven’t heard a few of the ones you’ve listed, so I’m going to check them out. Fun twist on the topic! I love Christmas music.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  4. Fun list of songs! Mary Did You Know is one of my favorites…especially the Pentatonix version of it. And I love Carey’s All I Want For Christmas. 😀

    1. LOL. It’s such a cute song! I need to make my daughter watch that movie in the next couple of days.
      Thank you! And happy holidays!

  5. I love, love, love Last Christmas. Especially because it is so hummable! I remember MTV once put this song in one of its Top 100 Songs of the Last Millennium, back when 2000 was closing. Like the Chistmas-y spin on this week’s TTT 🙂

  6. SO many great ones on here! I looooove Sarah McLachlan. (I’ve seen her in concert 3 times!) Her Christmas album is a must every holiday season. And I have a lot of nostalgia for the Amy Grant song, too. <3
