Feel-Good Festive Tunes To Add To Your Playlist

Share it!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (as Andy Williams would sing), but it’s also the busiest so we’ve put together this fabulous festive playlist so you don’t have to.

Tried and tested here in the office by the Lyons Marketing team, this playlist is one that’ll certainly have the whole family feeling full of festive cheer! We didn’t mind switching off our usual Heart Radio for these festive bangers, that’s for sure.

1. Wham! – Last Christmas

Some might call this a guilty pleasure, but we’re not ashamed to call this Christmas classic one of our favourites!

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

Just because we couldn’t agree more with Andy. What a legend.

3. Johnny Marks & Brenda Lee – Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

To get everybody up on their feet!

4. East 17 – Stay Another Day

There’s no mention of Christmas but the music video contains snow and it’s catchy.

5. Chris Rea – Driving Home for Christmas 

*Disclaimer* You don’t have to be driving home for Christmas to enjoy this one.

6. The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York 

We just can’t put our finger on why we love this one so much. Alexa, play this on repeat!

7. Greg Lake – I Believe in Father Christmas 

As you should, Greg.

8. Jona Lewie – Stop The Cavalry 

Dum-a-dub-a-dum-dum, dub-a-dub-a-dum… what’s the next line?

9. Paul McCartney – Wonderful Christmastime 

A song about having a wonderful Christmas time we hope you’ll be able to relate to.

10. Wizzard – I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday 

You probably already have this one on your recently played. We can’t relate to this one but we can’t help but sing along anyway.

11. Darkness – Christmas Time 

Air guitars at the ready for this one!

12. Leona Lewis – One More Sleep

It’s only right you play this on Christmas Eve.

Happy and joyful. What more could you want from a Christmas song!

One to mix and mingle too.
