Best Pop Christmas Songs 2018
1. John Legend - Bring Me Love
“Baby, I hope Santa brings you to me
'Cause it's all I wished for this Christmas Eve
No, I don't want much, your love is all I need
Baby, I hope Santa brings you to me”
John Legend just released his first original Christmas single “Bring Me Love”. It’s a song that feels just like a classic, and you just can’t help but dance to it. He also covers the classic song Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas in the newly released 2018 holiday album.
2. Pentatonix - Rockin Around the Christmas Tree
“Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
And we'll do some caroling”
It wouldn’t be Christmas without Pentatonix and their amazing renditions and duets.
The good news is Pentatonix’s new holiday album “Christmas is Here” out now. The a cappella group NEVER disappoint! This album is amazing and gets me in the holiday spirit from the first note.
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree is jazzy and upbeat and showcases Kevin's flugelhorn flurry and Matt Sallee's thudding low end. There are some really neat audio treats that range from the group's a cappella take on holiday standards.
3. Ingrid Michaelson – Happy, Happy Christmas
“Happy, happy Christmas
Love the ones who love you too
They say time flies and baby it's true
So happy, happy Christmas to you”
Ingrid scores again with a wonderful Christmas album “Songs for the Season”. Don’t let the name fool you, Happy Happy Christmas is the only original on the record.
It’s rare for new Christmas songs to settle in our hearts, since there’re so many old Christmas songs we love so much. However, this song deserves that place in our hearts. The very first time heard the minute of the song, I knew it would be a treasure.
4. Jessie J. - The Christmas Song
“I don't need no diamonds or a fancy car
Or a jet to fly me right up to the star
I just need your guidance, since we've been apart
I feel your love beside me, mending my broken heart”
“The Christmas Day” is the first Christmas album by Jessie J. She has just put out an album full of classic Christmas songs and you will you instantly be hooked!
The title song “The Christmas Song” is the only original one. Except for this, the album includes her previously covered holiday tracks Let It Snow, Jingle Bell Rock Santa, and Claus Is Coming to Town.
5. David Archuleta - Christmas Every Day
David Archuleta created 2 new songs for his first Christmas album, “Christmas Every Day” is the one. It’s such a fun song that will certainly get everyone at the Christmas party dancing. Trust me, you must add this track to your holiday playlist.
Top Pop Christmas Songs 2017
1. Sia - Santa's Coming for Us
“Santa’s coming to town
Singing to the deer in the skies
Singing as they jingle jingle jingle tonight
Singing to the moon set it free”
“Santa’s Coming for Us”, as expected, was a typical Christmas music. It was released by Australian singer Sia on 30 October 2017. You can feel the atmosphere of Christmas from the song name and album cover.
Sia’s distinctive voice is like a cup of warm hot cocoa that warms the cold Christmas Day. This funny up-tempo Christmas song really catches my eyes. If you never listen to the music by Sia, maybe you can start with this Christmas song!
Apart from “Santa's Coming for Us”, there’re total 10 songs on Sia’s Christmas album “Everyday is Christmas.”
Just click on following songs, and you can add them all to your Christmas playlist at once!
2. Gwen Stefani – You Make It Feel Like Christmas
“Sleigh bells singing hallelujah
Stars are shining on us too
I wanna thank you baby
You make it feel like Christmas”
Unlike the traditional Christmas song, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” combines old classics and new romantic odes. This single is a duet by Stefani and her boyfriend, Blake Shelton.
The lyrics “Never kissed anyone with blue eyes before you”, Stefani sings about the most romantic moments regarding her relationship with Shelton. The song is a perfect fit into reflecting the romantic side of Christmas.
3. 98°- Season of Love
“This is the season of love
This is the season of love
On wrapping presents
With we both build the snow man in the yard”
98 Degrees is an American pop contemporary boy band, they returned to Universal Music and released their Christmas song “Season of Love” in 2017.
When I listen to this song, a scene came out from my mind: On snowy Christmas, everyone celebrates the day with their loved ones. What a wonderful time!
98 Degrees also have a plan to do a tour called “At Christmas Tour” to celebrate their 20th anniversary, if you love their music, you cannot miss it!
4. Josh Groban – Christmas Time Is Here
“Sleigh bells in the air
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there”
“Christmas Time Is Here” was released as the deluxe edition of Noël on November 3, 2017. Believe it or not, it’s been 10 years since Groban released his album Noël.
The quiet piano accompaniment perfectly blended with Josh Groban’s singing. I can hardly wait to the enjoy the song and have some more wine on snowy Christmas.
Believe me! After hearing Christmas Time Is Here you just can’t get it out of your head.
5. Lindsey Stirling – You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
“You’re a monster Mr. Grinch
Your heart’s an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You’ve got garlic in your soul Mr. Grinch”
“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” creates a catchy rhyme, the prodigious electronic violinist teamed up with Disney alum and pop singer Sabrina Carpenter for a modern remix on a classic Grinch song.
The song is fun and fresh. I was cheered up by the song. How do you feel after listening to it?
6. Pentatonix – I’ll Be Home for Christmas
“Where the love light gleams
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams”
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” was a Christmas song recorded originally by Bing Crosby. Pentatonix recorded the song in 2016 for their Christmas album A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe.
In my point, the song is sung from the point of view of all people who are unable to be home for Christmas. I wish everyone would spend Christmas with their families.
The album A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe is one of the greatest Christmas albums.
