The 50 Best Christmas Songs Ever! (2016 Update)

There's a six-week period between the last few days of November and the first few days of January when all we seem to be hearing is holiday music. And year after year, radio stations - and, by extension, our personal collections - seem to feature the same holiday songs over and over and over again.

Well, there's a reason for that, my friends. Those cheerful (and some not-so-cheerful) tunes have stood the test of time and have become Christmas standards. In many cases, not only are they some of the best Christmas ditties of all time, but the best songs of all time, period.

So, after yet another Christmas season has befallen us, djrobblog has updated its ranking this year and come up with the 50 Best Christmas songs of all time!

This list combines the best of soul, R&B/hip-hop, pop, rock, and alternative Christmas tunes. Check out the list and see if your favorite songs are represented.

And feel free to vote and comment on each song or in the comment section about your personal faves!


50. Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer - Elmo & Patsy (1979)

One of the most beloved novelty Christmas tunes there ever was, sung by a husband-and-wife country duo with the last name Shropshire. We never want to laugh at Grandma's tragic fate, especially at this time of year, but millions and millions have got a big ol' belly chuckle out of this tale of calamity and caution...year after year!

    Hi, I'm DJ Rob, owner and author of the music blogsite I live in Chicago, IL and have been doing the blogsite since January 2015. It features articles about music news, history and trivia - both old and new. The features I enjoy doing the most are my djroblists. I've done dozens of lists ranking everything from blue-eyed soul singers to Prince's greatest songs. I only recently started converting them to listly to increase interaction with my readers. Take some time to enjoy them and let me know what you think! And check out when you can!
