Holiday Tunes

Holiday Tunes
"Baby It's Cold Outside" by the Glee Cast (aka Kurt and Blaine)
The two guys give a great update to the classic hit and the way their two voices fit together will have you swooning.

"All I Want for Christmas is You" by Bowling for Soup
The band brings punk to Christmas, not to mention some great guitar feat. bells background action.

"Let It Snow" by Aly & AJ
The acoustic take the twins give to the song, not to mention their slightly-raspy voices, add a whole 'nother element to the song.

"The Christmas Song" by Martina McBride
Martina's slight, barely-there country twang + her soulful rendition and silk voice make this a true classic.

"Auld Lang Syne" by Colbie Caillat
The quintessential New Years' Eve song, Colbie's peaceful version and personal message at the end makes it a must-have.

"Winter Wonderland" by Faith Hill
Not only am I jealous of Faith's pink dress on the album cover, I wish I lived in the winter wonderland she sings about.

"Santa Baby" by Taylor Swift
A release early in T's career, her country roots still show in the twang of this song--and it's a perfect compliment to the lyrics.

"I'll Be Home" by Meghan Trainor
The newest song on my playlist, I fell absolutely in love with her voice and this song through Spotify's 'Christmas Pop' playlist.

"All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey
A repeat, I know, but the Diva brings the ultimate of her range to the song and delivers a sound, if not more traditional, performance.

"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee
The vintage vibe emanating from this song is too good to miss, plus it's just a fun song to sing! 

"Auld Lang Syne" by Lea Michele
Another repeat, sorry. Lea's voice is the definite forerunner of this song, a perfect capture of the movie in which it premiered.

Honorable Mentions: 
"Mistletoe" by Justin Bieber
While the world loves to hate on the Biebs, this song is a cute pop-y Christmas love story that is a guilty pleasure.

"Baby It's Cold Outside" by Michael Buble and Idina Menzel
The award for Greatest Broadway Voices on a Holiday song and the Cutest Video Ever go to this song.

Favorite Holiday Song:
