Building My Spotify Christmas Tunes Playlist

Before continuing with this post, let me say that if you do not know what Spotify is, please go here: What is Spotify?

Put simply, Spotify is a free music service with premium offers as well for those that want to pay for some pretty cool features. If you want to put up with some audio and banner ads from inside the software, you are allowed to listen to a huge library of music from nearly every artists you can imagine. You can create playlists, star your favorites for easy access later, share what you are listening with on popular social media sites, add your media to theirs as searchable content, and it will even sync songs to your iOS device! This last part will only sync your own music unless you pay for Spotify premium, which will allow you to sync songs from their library as well. And the selection is pretty recent, the Michael Jackson Millennium Collection, for example or Justin Bieber’s Christmas cd is already up there, and you can listen to the entire cd for free.

Spotify and its large library of songs has allowed me to construct my own Christmas Playlist this year (without having to buy it all!) There are ads between every other song, but they’re only a few seconds long. Now, all this just to share with you my small but growing Christmas Tunes playlist via Spotify. The reason I’m sharing it this year is because I’m really digging the Christmas music on the radio this year. Everyone else around me seems to be in a bah humbug mood as far as radio stations playing 24-7 holiday tunes this year, but I’m loving it.

Regardless of everyone else being down in the dumps, the following songs are some of my favorites.

  • Christmas Canon Rock – Trans-Siberian Orchestra
  • Sleigh  Ride – She & Him
  • It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas – Michael Buble’
  • Last Christmas – Wham!
  • The Entire MercyMe “The Christmas Sessions” cd
  1. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
  2. Gloria
  3. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  4. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
  5. Christmas Time is Here
  6. Silent Night
  7. Away
  8. Little Drummer Boy
  9. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
  10. O’ Holy Night
  11. Joseph’s Lullaby
  • Angels We Have Heard on High – Third Day
  • A Mad Russian’s Christmas – Insturmental – Trans-Siberian Orchestra
  • I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Josh Groban
  • Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town – Bruce Springsteen
  • Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! – Frank Sinatra
  • Little Saint Nick – The Beach Boys

  1. I am glad to see She & Him on your list. I discovered them through Zooey Deschenel (since she is the “she”) and have used spotify to fulfill my She & Him music needs ever since.
