Christmas music dates all the way back to the 4th century, but here we are still singing along to Silent Night and Jingle Bells. The artist have changed over the years, and the music has gradually become more pop than sacred, but the songs still have the same Christmas feel, and the joy still remains in the age-old carols.

The holidays have become a very romantic time. Nowadays, artist such as Michael Buble, Justin Bieber, and Mariah Carey have released beautiful love songs just for the Holidays.

Some newer pop Christmas songs (along with older redone Christmas songs) include, Madonna’s version of “Santa Baby,” Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe,” Wham!’s “Last Christmas,” Bruce Springsteen’s notorious “Santa’s Coming to Town,” and my all-time favorite: “All I Want for Christmas is You” sung by Michael Buble. These are all great songs to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Not looking for sappy Christmas love songs? Then listen to Christmas songs such as Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” Bobby Helms “Jingle Bell Rock,” Brenda Lee’s “Rocking around the Christmas Tree,” Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song,” and Perry Como’s “It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas.” They’re all wonderful songs to sing along to this Christmas!

A few Christmas sound tracks you should check out this Christmas are: “Elvis’s Christmas Album,” Michael Buble’s album “Christmas,” Josh Gorban’s album “Noel,” Mariah Carey’s album “Merry Christmas,” and The Beach Boys’ The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album.”

It just doesn’t feel like Christmas if you’re not listening to Christmas tunes while you’re decorating the tree with family, drinking hot chocolate, and eating cookies. The music really makes it feel like the most wonderful time of the year!
