The friendliest of animals, Rudolph and his red nose, along with his friends Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen have a special place in all of our hearts.

4. It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas: Johnny Mathis

Is there a better way to usher in the Christmas season than this all-time classic song? Whether you start putting up Christmas in October, after Thanksgiving or the week of Christmas – crank it up.

5. Jingle Bells: Michael Bublé

Michael Bublé  is one of the best when it comes to remaking classic Christmas hits, and Jingle Bells is no exception. In fact, we bet that at some point, it will be on repeat.

6. Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town: Bruce Springsteen

“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” got the perfect makeover when the Boss picked it up and a saxophone solo was added. Little bit of rock, little bit of blues, but a whole lot of cheer and awesome.

7. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree: Brenda Lee

From houses to shopping malls, when the Christmas decorations come out, so does the rock. Rock responsibly, and turn it up loud.

8. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: Frank Sinatra

Is there anyone else better thank Frank to tell you Merry Christmas? Sit back, relax, and let Sinatra’s perfect voice put you in the holiday spirit.

9. Silent Night: The Temptations

Motown’s finest is responsible for one of the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded. A Christmas classic plus voices of gold equals the perfect song for every holiday playlist.

10. Linus and Lucy: Vince Guaraldi

While not technically a Christmas song, the Peanuts theme song brings in the season like few others can. On top of the song, we highly recommend the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.
