Christmas playlists to get you in the festive spirit

Posted by on

At Talking Tables HQ we take your soundtrack to the holiday season very seriously. Here are our Spotify recommendations to get your guests into the Christmas spirit.

Is Christmas really Christmas without hearing Mariah’s high notes in the background while you wrap gifts or the dulcet tones of Bing Crosby as you drive over to your in-laws. We think not. At Talking Tables HQ we take your soundtrack to the holiday season very seriously. So much so we’ve spent the last few days searching through Spotify’s myriad of playlists to find you the best compilations to get you in the festive spirit. Alexa, play Christmas number 1s.

 

Christmas Classics

 

 

Called classics for a reason, this playlist of timeless tunes has us coming over all nostalgic. With crowd pleasers like It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, you’ll be lip syncing along with the entire family.

 

100 Greatest Christmas Songs Ever

 

 

Now we can’t say we fully agree with the title – there’s a few missing for us, but for 5 non-stop hours of yuletide tracks that are certain to give you that fuzzy feeling, look no further. Expect everyone from Elton to Dolly, Kylie and Mariah. Perfect for long car rides.

 

UK Christmas Number 1s

 

 

Not strictly Christmas songs, but having all held the top spot on December 25th, crackling fires and mulled wine come to mind when listening to some of these. With mega hits including East 17’s Stay Another Day and Spice Girl’s 2 Become 1, this is one to pop on at your office party.

 

 NYE Dancefloor Fillers

 

 

Whether you’re planning a living room boogie or partying around your best mate’s, these dancefloor bangers are the ultimate soundtrack to help you ring in 2023. Fireworks and fizz at the ready.

 

Michael Buble’s Christmas album

 

 

We couldn’t put together a list of festive playlists and not include the undisputed king of chrimbo. Michael Buble’s album Christmas has been streamed over 4 billion times since it came out 10 years ago (imagine the royalties) and is jam packed with covers of much-loved hits like Silent Night and Santa Claus is coming to town.
