Help me create the ultimate Christmas playlist

Mariah Carey hot Christmas with Santa

There’s one station here in the D.C./MD area that just plays Christmas music from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

It’s great having a dedicated Christmas station, but I’m starting to run into a problem. While I love the Christmas classics, I’m not always in love with the artist performing it. That’s where you come in. I need help putting together the very best version of the Christmas songs. So far I’ve got:

12 Days of Christmas – John Denver and The Muppets

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa ClausThe Jackson Five

All I Want for Christmas Is YouMariah Carey

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Andy Williams

Let it Snow [holiday interpretation]Boyz II Men

Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the ReindeerBurl Ives

Oh Holy Night Celine Dion

But a seven-song playlist is wack so give me your favorite Christmas song and artist’s version and maybe I’ll send a special Christmas present your way.




  • Christmas Cheer

    My favorite
    Gladys Knight and the Pips
    ‘Twas the night before Christmas

  • Christmas Cheer

    I also like DonnyHathaway’s version of “This Christmas”

  • Christmas Cheer

    Donny Hathaway – This Christmas

  • keith

    Please Come Home for Christmas (Bells will be ringing) charles brown
    temptations silent night
    james brown – santa, go straight to the ghetto
    jackson five- santa clause is coming to town
    alexander oneal- sleigh ride

    giving you some funk, rock, and soul. the time of the year where rock n roll, blue, jazz, rockabilly get a real warm spot in the heart. nothing like well done christmas jazz man. even the big band stuff is nice.
