Top 5: Christmas Songs of 2010

I am a sucker for Christmas music. The day after Halloween I am pretty much itching to upload my Christmas play lists to my iPod, but I usually hold off until after Remembrance Day.  Last year I did my all time Top 10 Christmas songs...which still stand (and then on Christmas day I posted the one I forgot), but I love the Christmas song cash machine that bands cash in on around Christmas. Each year a few gems are made...so I thought I would share with you my top 5 of this holiday season. Enjoy.


Shake Up Christmas
Train
I am a firm believe that Train can do no wrong (knock on wood). I also love that this song has a slight Jamaican feel to it and the music video is so cheesy I just can't help but love it.

 

Welcome Christmas
Glee
The Glee Christmas album was better than I had expected...but this particular song is not on it. Welcome Christmas, or the Whoville Chorus, was a gem in the Christmas episode this season. Do not fear...you purchase it as a single on iTunes.  I love the remakes of the Grinch originals. Faith Hills Where are You Christmas is an oldie but a goodie.

 

Christmas Lights
Coldplay
Not the most uplifting Christmas song, but I just can not stop listening. If you love yourself a good dose of Coldplay then you will love this. I love the clear shout out to London in the video and song and the piano...I want it.

 

Oh Santa
Mariah Carey
This is for old times sake. I used to LOVE Mariah back in the day...when she was awesome and relevant yada yada yada. Now the only time I pay attention to Mariah is during Christmas because she has a good Christmas album and this year she released another. I also this this music video is hilarious. I am not sure what cheerleaders have to do with Christmas, but it's Mariah...she does what she does.

 

Stay (It's Christmas)
S├ębastien Lefebvre and Katie Rox
I really do heart this song...Lefebvre and Rox are both Canadians, which makes me love it even more. Lefebvre is a guitarist in Simple Plan (yeah yeah, sue me) and Rox used to play with a band called Jakalope which I have never heard of, but her solo stuff is pretty rad. 

I also like Hello December Sun by Frederick, but I already had one semi-downer song and I didn't want people to think that I was emo...I have another blog you can go to for that kind of stuff.

XOXO
Jes...
