So many artists covered the Last Christmas classic Christmas song but the one that still stands the test of time is the original version by Wham! The song is appreciated by both people that do not actually have a merry Christmas and by those that are together with the loved ones, even if the lyrics are a little cold and aggressive in some instances. If you love the eighties, you surely love Wham! and Last Christmas.


2 Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas

Out of the top 5 Christmas songs that we recommend, this is definitely the one that will surprise many. However, we cannot deny that the music is wonderful. Mariah Carey has a voice that is perfect for such types of music and the only bad part about it is the official music video, which is quite lame. The same thing cannot be said about the actual song.

1 Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues – Fairytale Of New York

It is quite a shame to say that many do not even know this song but it is definitely the best one ever. It is featured in most similar music tops that relate to Christmas and once you listen to Kirsty, you will understand why. The instruments are great and you also have an excuse to start singing obscenities.
