If the amount of all caps emails exchanged regarding the topic of this post is any indication, opinions on holiday music are expressly divisive. The staff at People’s Choice Headquarters possess a surprising array of passionate opinions regarding holiday music, but in an outcome surprising enough to be labeled a Christmas miracle, we were able to find some common musical ground.
Sorry, Michael Bublé. Bah humbug, U2. Even my top two personal favorites didn’t make it past the velvet rope — maybe I’m just a holiday music blockhead. After much deliberation, here’s our list of the top five best celebrity holiday songs!
1. Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas is You”
Even if you possess a heart that’s two sizes too small, this toe-tapping holiday classic is sure to turn your holiday frown upside down.
2. Bon Jovi “Please Come Home for Christmas”
Darling, Bon Jovi gives Christmas music a good name.
3. She & Him “Baby it’s Cold Outside”
4. Christina Aguilera “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
Easily the most emotively touching song on the list, this Aguilera classic will warm your heart like a cup of hot chocolate.
5. Adam Sandler “The Chanukah Song”
Disregarding his whole “international movie star” day job, Adam Sandler has quietly cornered the holiday music market. With Chanukah and Thanksgiving already taken care of, we’re eagerly anticipating Sandler’s musical take on Groundhog Day. Sample lyric:
“People snap pictures of Phil who’s so furry/He’s relived more Groundhog days than actor Bill Murray.”
What do you think of our list? Did we get it absolutely right, horribly wrong or somewhere in between? What’s your favorite celebrity holiday song?
