Christmas is by far our favorite holiday here at OnlinePianist, we can finally clean out the dust from the good old Christmas carols that we love to play so much…
It is also the best time for you to show off your piano skills that you worked so hard on, all you need to do is learn 2-3 Christmas carols and the Christmas eve spotlight is yours. To make it easier for you, we have prepared this list of the best songs about Christmas.
The list includes traditional and modern songs a like, as we believe that the modern songs of today are the Christmas carols of tomorrow (or of 1000 years from now, but who's counting right???). You can find the entire collection of our Christmas songs on the Christmas piano tutorials section and their corresponding sheets on our online Piano Sheet music section.
Here goes - Top 10 songs about Christmas!
10. Justin Bieber - "Mistletoe"
I still believe Santa exist…
Justin Bieber is the first ever artist to release a Christmas collection album before the age of 50…. What next for the wonder pop super boy? A comeback performance by the age of 30???
9. "O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree)"
Who or what the hell is Tannenbaum???
We bet you didn't know that the first artificial Christmas trees were made of Goose feathers, and that there are much more artificial trees than real ones.
By the way, there are also much more artificial Santa's than real ones…. #$%^~!
8. Bing Crosby - "White Christmas"
Did you ever see a non-white Christmas???
Although this Christmas song is not considered as a traditional Christmas carol, most of your parents are familiar with its old black & white video clip.
That's true guys, TV did not always had colors, and phones were connected to the walls as well!!!
7. "The Twelve Days of Christmas"
On the fourth day of Christmas I can't listen to this song anymore!
This song was a very big trauma for me when I was a little boy… I was actually waiting everyday to get Twelve Drummers Drumming, Eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping etc…
Needless to say that I never received any of these, nor ever understood what the hell is a French Hens!$%#
6. Coldplay - "Christmas Lights"
We sang about Christmas much before Justin Bieber did!
It is a well known phenomenon to find popular artist sing about Christmas or even releasing a complete Christmas album. It is usually happen when the artist gets old or when he gets a writing block. What is your accuse Bieber???
5. "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. ~ Shakespeare
If we were to judge a song according to the number of version it has on YouTube, than Twinkle Twinkle Little Star would have been placed much higher! But we don't…
4. Taylor Swift - "Last Christmas"
The saddest Christmas song ever written…
"Last Christmas" is probably the Christmas song with the highest number of cover versions. It was covered by at least 60 different artists(!!!). We chose Taylor Swift's cover because she is the hottest…
3. Adolph Adam - "O Holy Night"
Oh, hear the angels voices!
The second best thing the French people brought to this world after the French baguette..
2. Mariah Carey - "All I want for Christmas is You"
I don't want a lot for Christmas… Yea right…
All I want for Christmas is you. But can you please bring with you an iPad2?
1. "We Wish you a Merry Christmas"
And a happy New Year!
No jokes, no cynicism. We really really want to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas, you are truly the best fans in the world!
