No Justin Bieber was permitted on this list under any circumstances.

1. Donny Hathaway- This Christmas

This song just puts you in a good mood regardless of what you’re doing. Most of you will know the Chris Brown version of this, but this is the original and it’s just as amazing.

2. Tony Bennett- Winter Wonderland

This is a good one to blast through your speakers. It embodies everything to do with Christmas; from snowmen to sleigh bells, a catchy song to sing- a long to with your loved ones.

3. Michael Bublé- Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

He returns! I love the fact that Michael Bublé only emerges at Christmas time, it’s amazing. This is one of those songs that you watch your parents dance to by the fire or what you listen to when everyone’s stuffed up and in food comas on the sofa.

4. Kylie Minogue- Santa Baby

Everyone should know the words to this, no excuses. A must for your Christmas playlist, with Kylie as well just tops it off. Admittedly a song you sing in front of your mirror, with a hair brush pretending to be the best singer on the planet, then getting caught doing so!

5. Andy Williams- Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Indeed, Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year. The food, the company the presents; it couldn’t get better really. A song to dance along to with your family, or one to listen to while everyone is digging in and scoffing their faces with food. Couldn’t get much better really.
