batteryPOP Holiday Music Video Playlist

The holidays are in full swing. The halls are decked, the bells are jingling and we are rocking around the tree! And this festive time of year brings awesome Christmas music! Here are eight of our favorite festive music videos for this season, featuring both current and classic stars. Click on the song title to listen!

1. All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey

Mariah is celebrating this song’s 20th anniversary this season. The song became an instant classic when it debuted in 1994 on Mariah’s first holiday album, Merry Christmas. This video makes us want to play in the snow!

2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Sam Smith

22-year-old British singing sensation Sam Smith released his version of the song that was made famous by Judy Garland in the film Meet Me in St. Louis. This is a song that will stay with us each year.

3. Last Christmas - Wham!

This song was released in 1984 (yes, 30 years ago!) by the British pop duo Wham! and it is still one of the most enjoyed Christmas songs today. George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley have a fun time on the slopes in this snowy wonderland video. Many artists have covered the song, but the original is the BEST!

4. Do You Want To Build A Snowman - Disney's Circle of Stars

We are obsessed with Frozen! This song from the film is the perfect holiday tune. This version features so many of our favorite Disney stars from Girl Meets World, Jessie, Teen Beach Movie, Good Luck Charlie, Liv and Maddie and many MORE! Looks like it was a fun video to shoot!

5. The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late) - Alvin & The Chipmunks

Simon, Theodore, and Alvin updated their 1958 classic song for their movie Alvin and the Chipmunks in 2007. This is a more rock and roll version of the song and features movie clips. 

6. Underneath the Tree - Kelly Clarkson

American Idol’s first winner released Wrapped in Red last year. There are so many fun songs on the album including old favorites like Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas & Baby, It’s Cold Outside, and new songs like Wrapped in Red and Underneath the Tree. This song gets us dancing and excited to unwrap presents on Christmas morning!

7. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays - Midnight Red

This five member boy band of Colton, Joey, Thomas, Eric and Anthony gets us in the holiday spirit with this video.  Ugly Christmas sweaters, elves, and a fully decorated house are all you need to celebrate!

8. White Christmas - Bing Crosby

Oscar Winner Bing Crosby was a singer and actor in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Kind of like Justin Timberlake today! Your parents and grandparents totally associate him with Christmas, as he recorded many holiday classics and was in the famous movie White Christmas. This is the holiday song he is most famous for. We’ll be dreaming of a White Christmas too!!

Season's Greetings from batteryPOP!
