One of the best things about Christmas is the music, and I won’t be told any different. Not even all my days in retail were enough to put me off. Here are 15 cheesy Christmas classics to put you in the mood for December 25th!
1. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – Wizzard
2. Merry Christmas Everyone – Shakin’ Stevens
3. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
This one is my favourite!
4. Wonderful Christmastime – Paul McCartney
5. Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade
6. Step Into Christmas – Elton John
7. Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee
8. Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End) – The Darkness
Referring to this as a classic might be a bit of a stretch, but it’s pretty strong in the cheesy department.
9. Last Christmas – Wham!
10. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – The Jackson 5
11. My Only Wish (This Year) – Britney Spears
12. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea
13. What Christmas Means To Me – Stevie Wonder
14. Sleigh Ride – The Ronettes
If I listen to this song once, it’s in my head for weeks!
15. Do They Know It’s Christmas? (1984) – Band Aid
To feel extra Christmassy, here are some fun activities you can do while listening to these cheesy Christmas classics:
- Put up Christmas decorations.
- Wrap Christmas presents.
- Clean (it’s fun to me…)
- Stick on a Christmas playlist, go for a walk and admire the Christmas lights.
- Make Christmas cards, or write the ones you’ve bought.
- Go Christmas shopping (most stores will be playing them, anyway!)
- If you don’t fancy facing the shops, play them while you browse online in the comfort of your own home.
- Bake cookies or cupcakes.
- Wear your Christmas jumper and sing along.
- Make a hot chocolate, put your feet up, and simply relax!
