Top 10 Best Pop Christmas Songs: What’s Your Favorite Festive Tune?

Top Pop Song Artists
'Billboard' names the top 20 pop songs artists in the last 20 years.
No holiday season would be complete without Christmas tunes.

Whether you’re trimming the tree by a fireplace or shopping for last-minute presents, there’s nothing quite like a melody to make your holiday more merry and bright.

Though the perennial old-time tunes are forever classics, it’s easy to grow weary of little drummer boys, roasting chestnuts and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. But beyond the traditional Christmastime mainstays, there’s plenty of pop holiday cheer to be heard.

From Madonna’s “Santa Baby,” to Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe,” to Michael Bublé‘s “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” there’s a swarm of pop stars who have recreated classics and recorded new chart-blazing Christmas melodies.

Though it was released almost two decades ago, Mariah Carey’s 1994 hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” reached the top 40 for the first time on the Billboard Hot 100 (it was previously ineligible on the chart because it was not available as a commercial single). And it seems ’tis the season for Carey, as her classic even topped Billboard’s inaugural Hot 100-style ranking of seasonal favorites.

What other singers have left their mark on the merry season with a festive hit? Celebuzz has rounded up 10 top Christmas songs. Click through the gallery, and then weigh in below on which tune tops your holiday season playlist.
