The 30 Best Christmas Songs of All Time. Presented by. The 45 Best Christmas Songs of All Time. You have to admit that you love some of these songs. Off the best Christmas album of all time, A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector, the New York girl group logs this ebullient holiday party jam that will get even Grinch to twist it out on the dance floor. Elvis Presley – "Blue Christmas". Elvis’ Christmas Album is, arguably, the best testament to the King’s artistic interests of all his albums as it masterfully tackles rockabilly, gospel, country, pop, and gospel across its 12 tracks.

The power of Christmas nostalgia itself is greater than real memories. Hence, all of us can hark back with Bing on this Irving Berlin-penned ’40s number to a white Christmas just like the ones we used to know, even if our true past is full of crushing disappointments (December 25, 1993 – no Hornby train set). Shockingly, Mariah’s undeniable Christmas classic never made it to Number One – back in 1994, it had to settle for the runner's up spot behind East 17’s admittedly pretty terrific ‘Stay Another Day’. But its since made amends by re-entering The Top 40 every year since 2007, helping to cement Carey’s reputation as the ‘Queen of Christmas’. You’ve heard the best, now suffer the worst. The 12 worst Christmas songs ever inflicted on humankind.

Sick of Christmas songs by Michael Bublé, Nat King Cole and Mariah Carey? Here are some under-the-radar holiday tunes to give your poor, over-saturated ea. Barenaked Ladies get in on the Christmas music madness with their popular 2004 album Barenaked for the Holidays, which features a fellow Canadian – that aforementioned omnipresent crooner Michael Bublé. Don’t let that detail deter you from listening to their quirky songs. com/watch?v wfdx2V5sAic

Various Artists, ‘Where Will You Be Christmas Day?’ Compiling twenty-four recordings from 78 rpm records cut between 1917 and 1959, this album includes blues, folk, gospel, calypso, and weird Americana. There's a few artists you may know: it's hard to beat Lead Belly getting excited that "Christmas Is A-Coming" or Bessie Smith wailing "At the Christmas Ball. But just as great are the unknown singers doing songs you've never heard, some religious, some raunchy, like "Christmas in Jail – Ain't That a Pain. The best part of this album are the five original songs written and produced by Brian Wilson, but even the standards with orchestral arrangements sound great because of the Beach Boys' harmonies – as beautiful as a westward-leading star.

Once heard, however, you’re hooked. The album finds Nelson more focused than many of his contemporaries in the 90s, ensuring that his songs aren’t swamped by the overarching themes that bring them together. 35: Semisonic: Feeling Strangely Fine (March 1998) The temptation may be to reduce Semisonic to ‘Closing Time’, the N. 1 US and Top 25 UK hit for which the band are mostly remembered. Maybe I think that there is an Album that is disapperead, Keith Tippet Centipede, where the best English artist of Jazz and Prog played, produced by R. Fripp, with a great solo of Ian Carr.

These songs, from some of the greatest artists in history, survive only as studio recordings or one-off live performances. Classic rock radio is based around just that: classic songs. But you can only hear the same four or five Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, and Green Day tunes before craving something different. Yes, Green Day is classic rock because the march of time is inevitable and all that was once young and hip is now old and crusty. That's why we've collected these amazing songs classic rock bands never bothered releasing. One song that never made the album, became a B-side, or got anywhere past a handful of rehearsals is "Watching Rainbows," which John Lennon wrote before realizing wheel-watching was far more interesting. It's a rollicking number that absolutely would've made moptop mavens everywhere bob their heads in appreciation.

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, it's time to make sure your Christmas playlist is equipped with all the right songs. From timeless classics to new hits, these holiday tunes are necessary listens every year. David Bowie, George Michael, Sting, Duran Duran, and more artists joined forces to promote famine relief during the holiday season. Jingle Bell Rock" by Bobby Helms. Once you hear that iconic guitar intro, you know what's about to go down. Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee.

Layering Christmas wishes with a pointed desire for peace, the couple took aim at the Vietnam War and encouraged people to think about a greater global context at a time of celebration. The Pogues, "Fairytale of New York". The 1987 Special Olympics charity album, A Very Special Christmas, had some incredible contributions from A-list artists like Madonna, Whitney Houston, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Nicks. But their songs (mostly covers) were all overshadowed by the standout track "Christmas in Hollis" from upstarts Run-DMC, who were still relatively new on the scene. The song, based on the neighborhood of Hollis, Queens, sampled Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa" (more on that below) and sounded unlike any other Christmas tune out there.
