Some of us enjoy gloomy Christmas music with melancholy lyrics about gloomy snowfalls and recollections. Instead of seeking joy, one wants to be given permission to wallow in sadness.
Others enjoy the cheery sleigh bell jingles and triumphal horn cascades that adorn so many holiday standards. They practically rock around the Christmas tree before the holiday season officially begins.
Gathering them into a single list is not only pointless but also impossible because there may be Christmas music to suit any taste, from merry to somber.
We nevertheless make an effort and bring you a list of Christmas songs that you should know.
The singer’s name is Judy Garland and the title of the song is “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, which was released in 1944.
Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, who wrote the song for Garland’s movie “Meet Me in St. Louis,” claimed that the first draught was so depressing that Garland refused to sing it. That this is the cheerful version is good to know.
Singer Mariah Carey released the song “All I Want for Christmas is You” on October 29, 1994.
It was hailed as a classic, and it continues to be the most endearing newcomer to the hall of modern Christmas music.
“Last Christmas” is a song by the British pop duo Wham, released on December 3rd, 1984.
At first glance, George Michael’s gloomy lyrics about a failed affair could sound depressing. Instead, a soft melody coupled with his eventual optimism keeps us cheering.0
One of Amy Grant’s popular songs is “Tennessee Christmas,” which was released in 1983.
The opening number from Grant’s 1983 “A Christmas Album” is a warm musical embrace as well as a lovely ballad drenched in nostalgia.
“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is a Christmas song that was originally performed by Andy Williams in 1963.
In particular, the scene in Just Friends where the Christmas decorations are destroyed comes to mind when I hear this song.
“Underneath the Tree” is a song by Kelly Clarkson that was released in 2013.
In the post-vaccine era, I need Kelly Clarkson to perform a Christmas residency.
So which song are you gonna play for this upcoming Christmas? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned with IWMBuzz for more updates!
