The Holiday Hits: Top Five Streamed Christmas Songs

The Holiday Hits

The holidays are a time to celebrate what we love most! Amongst gift wrapping and cookie baking these were the top five songs keeping you company. 


Rockin Around the Christmas Tree 

Recorded in 1958, when Brenda Lee was just thirteen, ‘Rockin Around the Christmas Tree’ has become a timeless classic. Whether you’re cozying up by the fire or running around finding last minute gifts, Lee’s holiday hit is the perfect addition to your Christmas playlist. 

All I Want For Christmas Is You 

The holidays are a romantic time of year and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You” is a wonderful tune to sing along with your loved ones. Released as the lead single on her holiday album in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas is You” has kept us company during Christmas for a long time, cementing itself as a modern classic. 

 Jingle Bell Rock 

Bobby Helms’  ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ has been playing on radios since its release in 1957 and we are still charmed by the country classic. It’s the perfect song to listen to while sipping eggnog and hanging ornaments. 

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year 

Released on his 1963 album, “The Andy Williams Christmas Album,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” was not the chosen lead single. However, it’s been peeking at the top of the charts for the last several years.  

A Holly Jolly Christmas 

Burl Ives actually recorded two versions of his hit holiday song “A Holly Jolly Christmas.” The slower version, released in October of 1965, remains a classic. Keep in mind, he also recorded this for the famous “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” soundtrack.

The holidays are the best time of the year! These five bops are sure to put anyone in a festive spirit. For more great Christmas songs from last year, check out “The Top Ten Pop Christmas Singles of 2020”.  Which did you like better?
