Another song to enjoy for the holidays is “Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber. The teens in your house will truly enjoy this song since they are all crazy about Justin.

You know we had to have the “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” song by Bruce Springsteen on this list. While this is a classic first recorded back in 1934, the boss help to give it that new sound when he recorded it again. “Santa Claus is coming to town” is probably one of the most re-recorded Christmas songs in history.
