In Focus: New-Age Christmas Songs To Add To Your Holiday Playlist

In Focus: New-Age Christmas Songs To Add To Your Holiday Playlist


It's officially the Christmas season! If you want to put the people around you in a festive mood, your safest bets would be to play the classics such as "It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," "Sleigh Ride," or even Mariah Carey's modern classic "All I Want For Christmas is You."

However, if you've grown tired of the same old Christmas songs sung by dozens of different artists in your playlist, then maybe it's time you put these original and modern holiday songs in the loop!


1. "Christmas Must Be Something More" by Taylor Swift

Even before she shed her country music, Taylor Swift had already been crushing the music charts. So, it's no wonder that after her hit debut album, Swift immediately made a Christmas EP that features this particular Christmas which reminds us of what the season is all about!


2. "Santa Tell Me" by Ariana Grande

If you feel that Santa let you down by taking your beau away before the holidays, our girl Ariana wrote a song for you to sing along to! She originally didn't want to release another Christmas song after her first Christmas EP, but we're so glad she changed her mind!


3. "That's Christmas To Me" by Pentatonix

Given that not one of this a capella group's rendition of classic Christmas songs was a flop, it was only a matter of time before they released an original song to commemorate the holidays. The simplicity of the melody makes you focus on the lyrics that talks of the simple things that complete Christmas!


4. "Mistletoe" by Justin Bieber

Despite the fact that critics compared its vibe to that of Jason Mraz's songs, "Mistletoe" still managed to make its way into our Christmas playlists. Thanks, Justin, for creating a great holiday love song to play for our crush(es)!


5. "Dear Santa" by TaeTiSeo

TaeTiSeo is the subgroup composed of the greatest vocalists of one of the biggest K-pop girl groups, Girls' Generation. Since Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun have definitely proved themselves worthy to have their own subgroup, they created an English version of "Dear Santa" for international release!


6. "That Christmas Feeling" by Olivia Olson

You don't have to be a fan of Disney Channel's Phineas and Ferb to know how catchy their songs can be. Yes, the cast's renditions of Christmas classics such as "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" and "Let It Snow" are adorable but no other song on the show's holiday soundtrack can put you in a festive mood like this one does.


Listening to these songs are enough to make us want to put on a Santa hat and put up the Christmas tree stat! Which new-age Christmas song fills you with holiday spirit? Share them with us by leaving a comment below!
