We all have those friends who set their Spotify stations to “Holiday” at the first opportunity, whether that be the first day of Thanksgiving, the first day of Fall, or just the first day of cool weather when t-shirts and flip flops just won’t cut it.
Those are the ones who play the classics on repeat, but are also always looking for new holiday songs to crank up and show their friends; and they might be impressed with our list of the top ten new holiday songs.
Mary, Did You Know? – Pentatonix
This classic religious number with powerful melodies was redone by Pentatonix in the past couple of years, and is one of our favorite new holiday songs to date. Pentatonix – you know them because of their stunning a cappella voices that cover some of your favorites in a breathtaking way.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Sam Smith
We’re not sure if we’d want anyone else to sing us this endearing and sentimental classic. That voice, that piano, those lyrics… it’s all so good with Sam Smith at the mic.
Santa Baby – Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue takes an already sexy song to a whole new level with her rendition of Santa Baby, where she uses her sultry yet surprisingly upbeat voice to tease Santa a little more.
White Christmas – Michael Buble
Nearly everything that Michael Buble touches is gold, so it’s no surprise that he was able to impress us with his version of White Christmas. He sings and belts and croons over dreaming of a white Christmas, and has us loving every minute of it.
Ave Maria – Beyonce
Beyonce takes meaningful, heartfelt lyrics and pairs them with a soulful rendition of Ave Maria to create a pop-y version of the song that is as powerful as it is creative.
Run Run Rudolph – Kelly Clarkson
Leave it to Kelly Clarkson to belt out a classic in a way that brings new life to it! Clarkson fans love her take on this fun, upbeat, always happy sounding hit.
Christmas Lights – Coldplay
Coldplay’s original “Christmas Lights” is one of the best new holiday songs today. It’s a love song that’ll have you grabbing the hand of your other half, and wanting to take a stroll through snow covered, Christmas light decorated streets.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas – She and Him
Some voices are just made for the holiday season, and Zooey Deschanel’s is one of them. Her band She and Him’s version of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” will have you in the Holiday spirit as quickly as the original!
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) – Justin Bieber
Bieber‘s sexy runs run rampant in his version of the Christmas Song, and we don’t mind it one bit. With Usher jumping on the track, this classic gets even better the longer you listen.
O Holy Night – Leona Lewis
Leona Lewis’s powerful voice is the perfect match for O Holy Night, one of the most powerful spiritual numbers you’ll hear around Christmastime. Don’t skip her version of O Holy Night!
