Some of you might remember that, back in October, I shared a Halloween music playlist with you. I have decided to put together some Christmas songs for all of you as well. Sometimes it’s hard to pick and choose songs that everyone likes, but I am sure you will find some interesting songs on this list. 

  1. “All I want for Christmas is New Year’s Day” by Hurts
  2. “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey
  3. “Frosty the Snowman” by Jimmy Durante
  4. “Jingle Bell Rock” by Hillary Duff
  5. “Last Christmas” by Wham!
  6. “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee
  7. “Santa Baby” Taylor Swift’s version, Kylie Minogue’s version
  8. “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson
  9. “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby
  10. “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney

I would love to know what your favourite Christmas songs are! Leave a comment and let me know what they are 🙂

The title says it all.

It’s that time of the year again. I’m sure many of you are invited to some sort of Halloween party and eagerly preparing your costume. But what about the people who are HOSTING the party? They have a lot to prepare, and one of those things is the MUSIC! Sometimes it is hard to choose which music to play at your party. Let’s just say that I am here to help. Here is a list of songs to play at your Halloween party (most of them are pretty old, so bear with me).

  1. “Abracadabra” by Steve Miller Band
  2. “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater revival
  3. “Boris the Spider” by the Who
  4. “Clap for the Wolfman” by Guess Who
  5. “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
  6. “I Want Candy” by The Strangeloves
  7. “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads
  8. “Scary Monsters” by David Bowie
  9. “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell (super cool!)
  10. “The Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett (one of my favourite Halloween songs)
  11. “This is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas
  12. “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (same goes for this one)
  13. “Witch Doctor” by David Seville (Love this one too!)
  14. “Witchy Woman” by the Eagles

And there you have it. I would love to know which songs you will be using at your Halloween party (let me know in the comment section below)! 🙂
