Our favorite holiday songs, sung by your favorite artists



If the thought of hearing the Beach Boys’ “Little Saint Nick” one more time turns you into the Grinch, we’ve got a playlist for you! Christmas songs can be awesome when your favorite bands and singers are the ones performing, so check out these tunes for a fresh take on holiday classics.
 
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” She & Him
 
We all love Zooey Deschanel for being too adorable for words, and her singing is no less amazing than her acting. This song captures all of the quirkiness of She & Him and is more fun than most of the other tracks on A Very She & Him Christmas. It’s great for singing along with your friends!
 
 
“Greatest Time of Year,” Aly & AJ
 
Their band name changed to 78Violet, but the Michalka sisters’ older songs are as awesome as their new releases. This song is about winter in general, not any specific holiday. It will have you dancing around and wishing for snow.
 
 
“Beautiful Christmas,” Big Time Rush
 
We love Big Time Rush’s new CD Elevate, but we’re also huge fans of their holiday episode with GL cover girl Miranda Cosgrove and their holiday songs.
 
 
“All My Bells are Ringing,” Lenka
 
This sugary-sweet pop song will have you searching out a cutie to kiss under the mistletoe at the next holiday party.
 
 
“We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” Weezer
 
This definitely isn’t the carolers’ version—with electric guitars, Weezer’s Christmas album will have you head-banging.
 
 
“Santa Claus Lane,” Hilary Duff
 
Even though she’s not singing anymore (at the moment!), we’re huge fans of Hil’s Christmas album, and this song is a Disney Channel classic.
 
 
“Christmas Must Be Something More,” Taylor Swift
 
One of Taylor’s earlier releases, this song takes us back to her country roots. It’s also a song she wrote herself and has her signature style.
