I figured it is about time to list the most poptacular Christmas songs… What is a “poptacular” Christmas song. Well, I tend to think it a little bit boppy, a little bit corny, and is a whole lot of catchy. Some of these songs you may not have heard before, unless you are one of the few people who purchased the group’s Christmas Album, but others are ones that you wish they would stop playing. I think you will see what I mean as I go through my list.
5. All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey.
Let’s just start off with a song that I get sick of about 2 days into the Christmas season. Just watch the video… This song could be the poster child for Christmas pop songs. Love it or hate it… you are stuck with it.
4. Merry Merry Christmas by New Kids on The Block
This one made the list, because nothing says timeless Christmas song like inserting your band name into the song.
3. Green Christmas by The Barenaked Ladies
I love Barenaked Ladies and so I am a proud owner of this Christmas Album. I especially like this song, because I have had exactly one White Christmas. This song is just so much more fitting for me.
2. Santa Baby recorded by all sorts of pop artists.
This song has been recorded by Madonna, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, and Kylie Minogue. Yet, this list needed a modern pop artist, so I chose the rendition by Taylor Swift.
1. Last Christmas by Wham
Now, for the ultimate in corny pop wonderfulness! Who else could top my list, but Wham in all their 80’s glory! I could watch this video over and over again and it never gets old… Okay, I will admit that it gets old, but it is the perfect way to annoy my husband so it makes it awesome.
So your guess is as good as mine… Who will be putting out the next pop classic this year?
