Christmas

5 songs that remind you that Christmas is here

The human mind tends to associate certain sounds with certain emotions. While visiting a shopping mall or dining at a restaurant, I would often listen to a few selection of songs that would play in the locales, especially during the time of Christmas. I still cherish these songs and associate them with this festive celebration. I am sure some of you would relate to these songs too-

1.) Wham/ George Michael – Last Christmas

George Michael and Wham are still probably on playlists of people who like 80s music. Apart from being a chartbuster track, you won’t find a single mall not playing this in Christmas week. It is a romantic song but you will learn to associate it with Christmas.

2.) Mariah Carey – All I Want For You Is Christmas

A classic by one of the most soulful singers of all time, Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is you is very upbeat and melodic and can get you going. It’s another chartbuster.

3.) Andy Williams – It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

A classic song that has seen many renditions throughout the decades.  The song features in an array of movies and can be heard in shopping malls and restaurants.

4.) Michael Buble – Christmas

A modern rendition of the traditional gospel carol by Michael Buble, this song has been the most played version all across the world. It is another groove-y track that can make you dance.

 

5.) Kenny G – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Probably the most respectable instrumental version of this song. It follows a contemporary jazz feel which can make you flutter on the waltz. Kenny G is a saxophone player who has received many distinguished awards for his music.

 

These songs remind me of Christmas, and I hear them being played all around during the Christmas time. I hope some of these strike an accord with you guys too.
