Pigg’s Playlist: Holiday Tunes


Snowman w/ iPod

Kayla Pigg

As a kid I always knew the holidays were on the way when my mom and dad played Harry Connick Jr.’s first and best Christmas album “When My Heart Finds Christmas.” Casually sitting in a chair by the fire with his best red sweater on, this CD was, and still is, the symbol that the holidays are upon us. I used to beg my mom to play “(It Must’ve Been Ol’) Santa Claus” over and over again so much that I swear she wished she hadn’t even bought the CD in the first place.

As I got older, I realized Connick was not the only person making holiday tunes. These days it seems like every artist has a holiday album, and for good reason. Whether you celebrate them or not, the holidays are really just all about being happy and spreading joy with others around you. This week’s playlist is all about the holidays and some great tunes to celebrate them with:

1. (It Must’ve Been Ol’) Santa Clause, Harry Connick Jr.

2. Home For The Holidays, Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler

3. Last Christmas, Wham!

4. Underneath the Tree, Kelly Clarkson

5. What Christmas Means To Me, Stevie Wonder

6. All I Want For Christmas Is You, Mariah Carey

7. Sleigh Ride, Harry Connick Jr.

8. Happy Xmas (War is over), John Lennon

9. Little Saint Nick, The Beach Boys

10. Feliz Navidad, Jose Feliciano
