I know you guys might think I'm basic AF for saying that, but I don't care. Sometimes you need to embrace the basic, and shake it to a medley of Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber. It's just the way the world works.
Yeah, you know I've been watching you for a while / I have to dance with you today (DY!) / I saw that your eyes were already calling me / Show me the way I'm going (oh) / You, you are the magnet and I am the metal / I'm getting closer and I'm making the plan / Just the thought of it accelerates my heartbeat (oh, yeah) / Now I'm enjoying it more than usual / All my senses are asking for more / This should be taken without a rush...
Slowly (TIL that despacito is Spanish for slowly).
And when I say I'm obsessed, I mean it. I went to Montreal's Christmas bar the first night it opened, and I had the time of my life; I listen to Chrismtas songs year-round; and I go a little overboard on the decorating. Whatever. Christmas is bae.
Because of all this, I consider myself to be a little bit of an expert when it comes to Christmas songs, and the ones that you absolutely need to be listening to to get in the holiday spirit ASAP.
Baby It's Cold Outside
Yes, it absolutely has to be the version from Elf version.
Who isn't dreaming of a white Christmas, TBH?
Because no matter how you feel about Justin Bieber, you have to admit that this Christmas song is awesome AF.
Let It Snow
Okay, honestly, I hate when it snows. But listening to this Christmas song makes any snowstorm 110% seem like fun.
Do They Know It's Christmas?
Really makes you think, TBH.
One of my all-time faves, hands down.
Jingle Bell Rock
But only because the Mean Girls thigh-slapping Christmas pageant scene always comes to my mind whenever I hear this song.
I don't think there is a more cheerful holiday song on this earth. How can you hear this and not want to burst out into holiday cheer?
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
Perfect for dipping your toes into the well that is holiday cheer, and for listening to some sweet, sweet Buble.
You can't see me right now, but I'm legit giving this Christmas song a standing ovation.
John Lennon's take on a Christmas song is honestly just pure beauty.
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
I mean, ignoring how creepy Santa comes off in this song, this is actual holiday song gold.
Wonderful Christmas Time
You could you simply not have a wonderful Christmas time while listening to this song?
Yasss, Coldplay, slay the Christmas song genre!
I don't think you can get any more classic than this, TBH.
... Actually, this might take the cake in the classic holiday song genre.
Holly Jolly Christmas
Just try not to feel holly jolly when listening to this song.
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Home Alone vibes...
Please Come Home For Christmas
... Home Alone vibes, everywhere.
Because modern Christmas songs deserve just as much recognition as classic ones, TBH.
Run Run Rudolph
Another song from Home Alone? Oh yes, you bet.
Christmas Time Is Here
Yes, from Charlie Brown, AKA the greatest Christmas special known to man.
I'll Be Home For Christmas
I don't know why, but this song is the perfect holiday amount of super emotional but also kind of cheery?
When The Killers do holiday songs, they do them right.
Christmas In Harlem
Kanye? More like Kanbae, amiright?
Little Saint Nick
Beach vibes for Christmas are the best vibes for Christmas.
All I Want For Christmas Is You
This song. You guys, this song. This is the OG best Christmas song in the whole world, hands down. Just try not to sing along with Mariah when that first verse hits. I'm going to listen to this song right now, BRB.
