Are you bored of listening to the same old track again and again? (I love that new Maroon Five single, but WHEW it is time for a little variety). Do you need to get the Hamilton soundtrack out of your head for a hot minute? Do you need some background music for your holiday festivities? Whether you are wrapping presents at home or on a ride looking at Christmas lights around town, I have the perfect playlist for you!
I have compiled an ultimate playlist of all my holiday favorites and there is something for everyone! I’ve got theologically rich tracks for reflection and party jams for dancing. I’ve got songs for feels *insert Michael Buble* and songs for reflection, country albums from my childhood and jazzy albums I’ve discovered in recent years! You’ll find anything from the classics such as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin to recent picks such as Sam Smith, Mariah Carey, and Lauren Daigle!
IMPORTANT: you must must must MUST listen to Jason Gray’s Christmas album titled “Christmas Stories: Repeat The Sounding Joy” if you don’t listen to any other Christmas music this season. It is my favorite Christmas collection hands down. He writes a song for each person in the nativity story along with several of the classics, and it is nothing short of stunning. It is the first album in my ultimate playlist, so you can’t miss it!
Each song, however eclectic the collection, holds a sweet meaning or a Christmas memory for me. Without further ado, go get busy and listen to these festive tunes!
