As the song goes, Christmas just ain’t Christmas without the one you love. It also ain’t the holidays without some rockin’ holiday music. Check out some of our team’s favorite tunes to accompany your last-minute shopping, decorating and merry making. Or take the playlist with you on Spotify. Hope everyone has a happy, safe and soulful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s . . . and whatever else you may be celebrating at this time of year!
Arnold — Christmas In Hollis by Run DMC Because I know for a fact that Santa wears Shell Toe Adidas.
Angie — The Heat Miser Song from The Year Without Santa Claus It’s one of my faves because my longest friend and I watch it every year together and know all the words . . . just reminds me of long ago childhood fun.
Scott — Please Come Home for Christmas by Aaron Neville Being from Louisiana, Aaron Neville was always on the rotation of our Christmas music growing up, along with Harry Connick Jr. But I have to give the nod to Aaron here because of that unmistakably awesome voice! I will also usually attempt to impersonate his version of O Holy Night at least once every Christmas.
Aysha — St. Brick Intro by Gucci Mane Because Christmas isn’t complete without Gucci Mane
Brandon — Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande Because it’s Ariana Grande and she’s the new Mariah Carey. Thank me later.
Denise —Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby & David Bowie because awesome. ( : #iconsDenise
Rachel — I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm by Kay Starr The nostalgic big band sound reminds me of my grandfather . . . but with a modern twist.
Kristin — Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by U2 Bono’s plea is so passionate, I always think if I belt it out, too, maybe she will come home.
Pete — All I Want for Christmas Is You from Love Actually. It’s great because the little kid learned to play the drums to take a big-league swing at the girl of is dreams. A special scene from a special movie.
Anne —Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney Because it’s one of my favorites and every time it comes on it reminds you it’s a wonderful time of year! The catchy tune doesn’t hurt either
Jayna – Baby It’s Cold Outside Because it makes me think of blankets and hot chocolate and being warm and cozy.
Brian – Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano mostly because it’s a different sound than most Christmas songs.
As you can tell, we have a pretty diverse, funky and unique tribe, but one thing we can all agree on is we wish you a very happy and safe holiday season!
