Coda’s Ultimate Christmas Playlist

So we’re feeling rather Christmassy here at Coda so I thought I’d put together a little playlist to also get you in the mood for the festive season! It’s a mixture of Christmas classics along with some alternative options that you may not have heard. It may be Christmas but we’re always on the look out for new music. ūüėČ Enjoy!

Find the playlist on spotify here.

Track listing:

1. Santa Baby РMichael Buble 

Mr Christmas himself, I think we can all agree that it isn’t Christmas until we hear this beautiful man’s sultry voice.

2. White Christmas – Bing Crosby

3. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

 4. Christmas Wrapping РThe Waitresses 

Probably the most¬†underrated¬†Christmas song of all time and it’s one of my favourites. Sarcastic and witty, yet still festive.

5. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams

6. Christmas TV – Slow Club

Such a pretty little song and can be enjoyed all year round. Slow Club’s Christmas EP is definitely worth a listen.

7. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! РDean Martin 

8. Last Christmas – Wham

9. Christmas Time – The Darkness

10. Happy Xmas (War Is Over) – The Polyphonic Spree

So the John Lennon version wasn’t on spotify, but never fear as the Polyphonic Spree’s cover is just as good and with a few interesting subtle differences to the original.

11. It’s Christmas So We’ll Stop – Frightened Rabbit

12. Do They Know It’s Christmas? – Band Aid

13. I Wish It Was Christmas Today – Julian Casablancas

So this song sounds like it was written in about twenty minutes, it’s definitely not Julian’s finest work but it’s a nice little Christmas tune.

14. Fairytale Of New York – The Pogues

15. My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year) – Regina Spektor

16. White Winter Hymnal – Fleet Foxes

So not a Christmas song as such, but I personally don’t start feeling truly Christmassy until I’ve listened to this at least 20 times.

17. Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade

18. The Christmas Song РThe Raveonettes 

19. The Christmas Waltz РShe & Him 

Zoey Deschanel’s musical side project ‘She & Him’ have released a Christmas album with some nice little songs on it. Zoey’s voice is cutesy and quaint, which is perfect for this time of year.

20. Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Dean Martin¬†

21. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea

22. Christmas at the Zoo – The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips have always been a bit odd, but I really like this little number about setting animals free on Christmas eve. Cute!

23. Stay Another Day – East 17

So again, it’s not strictly a Christmas song, but everyone knows it’s not Christmas until you switch to a music channel and see the East 17 boys covered in fake snow.

24. Step Into Christmas – Elton John

25. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – Wizzard

Other good Christmas songs that Spotify didn’t want you to hear:
