Hello there! I’m Jonny D and I am the PPC & Search Marketing Executive at John Greed Jewellery! In my spare time, I’m a vinyl DJ with a love for disco, soul, indie, Madchester, Britpop, 60’s Garage, punk, mod and more!
Are you always the designated DJ at the Christmas party? or do you always find yourself around the stereos singing & dancing to Christmas songs? It can be a massive struggle finding the right songs to play at Christmas as everyone’s taste is different. Which is why I have come up with the Christmas playlist that will suit everyone at the Christmas get together!
Darlene Love – Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Originally sang by Darlene Love, this rock song has been used by many great singers and was also the hit song for the 1992 Christmas movie, Home Alone 2!
Human League – Don’t you want me – This song was a popular single by the British synthpop group, Human League and it was released on the 27th November 1981. This is not necessarily a festive tune but it was a Christmas number 1 hit single when it was released back in the 80’s!
Gabriella Cilmi – Warm This Winter – This song was an original back in 1962, sung by Connie Francis. The song then reached number 22 in December 2008 via a remake “Warm this Winter” by Gabriella Cilmi.
The Ronettes – Frosty the snowman – Frosty the snowman ALWAYS gets played on the radio during the holiday season and I LOVE IT! it is one that you must put on your playlist! From 1963, this is the second track written by Phil Spector to appear on this list
Elton John – Step into Christmas – No playlist is complete without Elton John serenading your ears! This song is perfect for Christmas and gives you those happy/positive vibes!
Slade – Merry Christmas everybody – For me this is the song that defines Christmas and is one that should definitely be at the top of your Christmas playlist!
Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – 1973 was a great year for Christmas hits with this song, Slade and Elton John all being original hits in the same year. This song was recorded in August and has quickly become a favourite enjoyed by everyone!
Frank Wilson – Do i love you (indeed i do) – This isn’t a Christmas record or a Christmas hit but a massive anthem for lovers of Northern Soul, and a bit party hit.
The Pogues – Fairytale of New York – This festive track about heartbreak and pain first released in 1987 usually re-enters the singles charts of December each year! Be sure to get this on your playlist!
Robbie Williams – Angels – First released in December 1997, this wasn’t intended as a Christmas hit but it has become a family favourite for all ages!
Oasis – Don’t look back in anger – We love a bit of Oasis and this song is perfect for the holiday season when we are reminiscing back at old times and remembering the now with everyone around you.
Mariah Carey – All I want for Christmas is you – Everyone loves a bit of Mariah! So why not put this on your playlist this year! (Top tip – this one will go down very well if you sing it to your partner)
S Club 7 – Reach – REACH FOR THE STARS! You cannot go wrong with some S club 7 on your playlist! This is bound to get people off their feet this Christmas to dance.
Add these songs to your playlist and I guarantee you will be loved at your Christmas gathering! We would love to know what kind of songs you have on your Christmas playlist, share them in the comments below!
