The Best Celebrity Holiday Songs. Period.

With less than 24 hours to go, you can no longer be annoyed by someone blasting holiday music.

It’s the price of Christmas.

So if you’re in need of suggestions for your holiday playlist, or a festive tune for your work party karaoke attempt, here are nine of the best celebrity efforts.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You,” by Mariah Carey
For the past 20 years, this song has remained a holiday staple for the younger generation – and it will never get old. Ever. We don’t have to tell you that it’s one of those songs that you can’t help but to sing along.

“O Holy Night,” by The Canadian Tenors
The Canadian Tenors’ version of “O Holy Night” is one of the best you’ll ever hear. If holiday shopping and packed malls has you stressed, it will definitely transport you to that soothing place of holiday peace (finally).

“Santa Baby,” by Madonna
The Material Girl herself offers a sultry song for Santa, outlining exactly what she desires for Christmas this year. Why do we love it? It offers an element of sexy sass typically absent from the cheery, wholesome holiday songs. You need to switch it up a little, right?

“Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays,” by N’Sync
It’s OK to like N’Sync’s “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” even if you don’t like (or admit to liking) the band. The upbeat, catchy ode to the holidays is a boy band jingle at its finest.

“Let it Snow,” by Michael Buble
With Michael Buble’s jazzed-up version of holiday classics, the songs we all know and love become as fresh as that pine needle smell. Buble loves the holidays so much that he even has an annual holiday special where he performs holiday classics like one of our faves, “Let it Snow.”

“Wonderful Christmastime,” by Paul McCartney
Since 1979, Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” has been a holiday staple year after year (that’s a lot of royalties). Though critics love to hate it, there’s a reason the catchy song is a mainstay. And yes, it will be in your head for the rest of the day.

“8 Days of Christmas,” by Destiny’s Child
Destiny’s Child’s “8 Days of Christmas” brings back a flood of memories for young professionals of Christmases past – when Destiny’s Child and pagers were both still a thing.

“Santa Tell Me,” by Ariana Grande
So, Ariana Grande’s just released “Santa Tell Me” is too new to be considered a favourite, but we’re kind of loving it this year. And this onesie-filled music video is pretty cute too.
