Best Christmas Songs of 2010

A quick Christmas present to all my readers, a last minute addition to your Christmas play lists. Here is a list of the best Christmas songs to come out this year.

6.Wish List-Neon Trees

A fun pop song with a heavy guitar rift and irresistible lyrics. What more could you ask for?

5.Christmas Was Better in the 80's-Futureheads

The Futurehead's signature Sunderland accents sing a punk rock song about Christmas past.

4. Christmas Lights-Coldplay

Nothing says Christmas like Chris Martin's melodic voice over the piano. Do you think Martin is a Vince Guaraldi fan? This song sounds like it could have been in a Charlie Brown Christmas special.

3. Mistletoe-Jukebox the Ghost

Jukebox have a way of putting serious lyrics against light-hearted music. Who knew contrast worked so well?

2. Holiday-Vampire Weekend

Honda agrees with me.

1. Getting Ready for Christmas Day-Paul Simon

Paul Simon doesn't disappoint with his new Christmas single, indeed it could be the best seasonal song since John Lennon's 'Happy Christmas.' With a similar theme and style, the song is based on a 1941 sermon given by the Rev. J.M. Gates and is hopefully a sign of Simon material to come.
