Music of my Heart: Christmas Edition

Just like my previous top five film post, I have decided to name my top five Christmas songs. Now, these aren’t your regular Christmas songs, but I promise they are still pretty awesome. I hope you will find them equally awesome! ENJOY!

p.s. That is Brandon Flowers (below) of The Killers with a very cool Santa Claus (you’ll find them on this list).

 

5. “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”

This song just makes me so happy!! It’s very corny, but it’s also adorable and innocent. It makes me want a hippopotamus!

 

4. The Killers- “Don’t Shoot Me, Santa”

Definitely a far cry from the previous song BUT hilariously awesome. I mean, why would Santa shoot anyone? He’s Santa! He only shoots people with love and gifts! But, I love this song anyway. Plus, The Killers are awesome so…

 

3.*NSYNC- “Merry Christmas, and Happy Holiday”

You know I wouldn’t do this list without mentioning *NSYNC! Many people forget about their Christmas album, but boy did they have one. And a GOOD one at that!!! This was probably their most popular Christmas song. Excuse me while I go and sing it 15 times…

2. She & Him- “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

Last year, Zooey Deschanel’s wonderful band, She & Him, made a cute little Christmas record and I bought it, on vinyl. Why vinyl, you ask? Because I feel very old-fashioned around the holidays. So, grab some hot cocoa and snuggle up next to a nice fire, because this is one of those songs that is going to make you want to do that.

1. Coldplay- “Christmas Lights”

Okay! Okay! This song! This song is probably not only one of my FAVORITE Christmas songs, it is definitely up there in my favorite songs of all time. It actually bothers me that they don’t play it on the radio around Christmas. Every time I hear this song, I cry. Not a sad cry, but a nostalgic cry. The combination of Chris Martin’s voice and the beautiful holiday that is Christmas makes me want to grab a tissue box and call the people I love just to say hi.
