It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Okay, not really. But it’s certainly starting to feel like it outside. I’ve already placed handmade snowflakes in the window of my dorm room. And Starbucks has pulled out their holiday cups, and you know that when Starbucks pulls out the decorations, Christmas is finally here.
Actually, I started listening to Christmas music right after Halloween. Yeah, I’m one of those people.
Ah, yes, I can feel the judgment as I type this.
Hmph, whatever. No shame, no shame.
I’m sure all of you can’t wait to be home with your loved ones and homemade cookies and presents and snow and 25 Days of Christmas (because Christmas movies is one of the best parts of Christmas, uh-huh) and lastly, Christmas music (the absolute best part of Christmas!).
My mind is going blank – must be a symptom from studying too much. Christmas needs no explanation, anyway.
Here are some of my favorite songs that I always looked forward to every Christmas.
So…good luck with finals and have a good break!
Baby, It’s Cold Outside – GLEE
Hate all you want, but this version is really lovely. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love some Klaine? I’m still in tears over their recent breakup.
Let It Snow – Boyz II Men
I love Boyz II Men, but I love this song even more. It’s so sweet.
This Christmas - Donny Hathaway
The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole
Timeless, but I’m sure you know that. I hate it when people remake this song – no one does it quite like Nat does.
White Christmas – Bing Crosby
Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
Yes, it glorifies the whole gold digger-sugar daddy complex and the whole issue with Christmas losing its true meaning because of presents and blah blah blah. Sultry and sexy, Eartha Kitt does it like no other.
Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town – The Jackson Five
It’s a nice little twist to the usuals, but I love it so it works well.
I feel like you guys are really going to judge me for this, but I’m including a few slow songs for the couples out there. Enjoy (but actually though).
Christmas Eve – Justin Bieber
Well, then. Cute, but it’s still rather suggestive, yeah? I mean, come on, Justin. “You leave some cookies out / Imma eat em all.” Chris Brown should have just put this on his album instead of just writing and producing it. It’s quite obvious Chris was involved with the making of this song.
All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
Santa Claus is Back in Town – Elvis Presley
This last one is strictly for your amusement. Enjoy your holiday!
Lonely Island – Dick In A Box
