Mona Austin's Top 20 Christmas Play List

buzzz worthy. . .

The season to be jolly is coming much earlier each year, whihc means we start hearing the songs of the season.  In retail by the time the last week in October rolls around amny stores are already playing holiday music.  Capturing the spirit of the season music acts as a unifying force between people of diverse views and backgrounds.  In hopes of spreading Christmas cheer I have compiled a list of 20 classics.

It was difficult to put together a list of my favorite songs.  Every time I think I have narrowed it down to the seminal list another song I cherish pops into my head!  By no means is this list final.  It's more so a combination of the songs that I think have the most appeal to my broad audience of readers and a select few that fall into the category of "Christmas time is here." Here are 20 of my favorites in no particular order:

  1. Frosty the Snowman                              Perry Como
  2. Silent Night                                            The Temptations
  3. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus      The Jackson 5
  4. This Christmas                                       Donnie Hathaway
  5. Someday at Christmas                           Stevie Wonder
  6. Christmas Time in Hollis                       Run DMC
  7. Christmas Time Is Here                         Vince Guarali
  8. Feliz Navidad
  9. The Real Meaning of Christmas           Colorado Mass Choir
  10. What Christmas Means to Me               Stevie Wonder
  11. Little Saint Nick                                    Beach Boys
