Playlist: Cool Christmas Songs

It's time to break out the macaroni-and-glitter ornaments you made in second grade and plunk a candy cane in your hot cocoa, because Christmas is officially right around the corner. To help you prepare, I've devoted this week's Playlist to Cool Christmas Songs. (Every Monday on BuzzSugar, I'll be posting a themed Playlist, and you guys can tell me what songs you'd choose for the occasion.)

My 12-song mix starts out chill then gets a little rock-and-roll before heading into Run DMC and a song that namechecks Salem Lights. Tell me: What songs would go on your cool Christmas mix?

  1. "Christmas Time Is Here," Vince Guaraldi (a.k.a., the "Charlie Brown Christmas" song)
  2. "Oh Holy Night," Kelly Clarkson
  3. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan
  4. "Blue Christmas," Elvis
  5. "Baby It's Cold Outside," Leon Redbone and Zooey Deschanel
  6. "Wonderful Christmastime," Paul McCartney
  7. "I'll Be Home For Christmas," Aimee Mann
  8. "Santa Baby," Eartha Kitt
  9. "Christmas in Hollis", Run DMC
  10. "Cool Yule," Louis Armstrong
  11. "Merry Christmas From the Family," Robert Earl Keane
  12. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," Judy Garland

Most tracks are available through the iTunes store.

I just bought "A Very Special Christmas Gift from Phil Spector" and it is HOT! Includes the production style that made him so famous. Got it at my local record store, so I'm not sure if it's on CD.
