Panther Playlist

Ultimate Winter Holiday Playlist

This holiday playlist will have you making snow angels on a blanket of snow, sipping toasty hot cocoa out of an oversized mug, bolting to the store to buy out the holiday decorations, or maybe even eating some syrup-covered spaghetti.

  1. “All I Want For Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey
    • This song will put you in the mood for the holiday season any day. Crank up the volume, stand in front of a mirror, and belt the lyrics to this roaring holiday tune!
  2. “Winter Wonderland” by Darlene Love
    • This song is a classic. Picture a beautiful winter landscape, covered with soft snow as flurries twinkle down like sparkles. 
  3. “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town” by Bruce Springsteen
    • Bruce Springsteen takes this children’s song to another level, adding live instruments and a killer saxophone section.
  4. “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson
    • Although there are no lyrics, this song is perfect for picturing yourself sledding through the snow on a horse-drawn sleigh, hearing bells and trotting in the distance.
  5. “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé
    • Burrr! This song is definitely relatable at this time of year. The struggle is real, having to pry yourself from the warmth of the indoors and venturing into the bitter cold.
  6. “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson
    • This fun Christmas pop song will help you remember that Christmas is not just about the gifts, but about the joy of family.
  7. “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” By Bandaid
    • This song really makes everyone think about how others can be in tough situations, and that we should be grateful for what we have. Picture the children of Africa, stuck without any snow or gifts this holiday season. Think about how we can spread joy to everyone!
  8. “Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah” by the Glee Cast
    • This classic Hanukkah song is an upbeat version from the Glee Cast, with great vocalizations that speak from the root of this wonderful song.
  9. “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande
    • Combining Ariana’s intense vocals and holiday cheer? Genius! This song will be stuck in your head until you’re belting it in the shower.
  10. “Christmas Tree Farm” by Taylor Swift
    • Growing up on a Christmas tree farm, Taylor sure knows how to describe one! This light-hearted song captures the holiday season beautifully!
  11. “A Kwanzaa Song” by Lovely Hoffman
    • This is a beautifully sung song about Kwanzaa that shares a lot about a holiday that often goes unnoticed. This is a super fun song with a great beat!
  12. “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!” By Dean Martin
    • It’s the truth: we’re all crossing our fingers for a snow day this winter. Maybe if we sing about it, our wishes will be granted.
  13. “Like It’s Christmas” by the Jonas Brothers
    • This song conveys the joys of the holiday season and the importance of love during the holiday season, and all year!
  14. “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms
    • This song is yet another classic, each second making you want to get up and dance to the Jingle Bell Rock!
  15. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” by Darlene Love
    • This song is such a passionate love song, as the narrator begs her lover to come home and spend Christmas with her.
  16. “Last Christmas” by Wham!
    • This Christmas song conveys yet another lover’s hardship during the holiday season, but it being upbeat really makes you forget that the song is slightly sad and makes you just want to have fun!
  17. “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” by John Lennon and Yoko Ono
    • This song will make you appreciate the peace and joy that the holidays bring, as everyone bands together to celebrate and have a great time!
  18. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” by Gene Autry
    • Remember poor Rudolph, the head of Santa’s sleigh with the glistening red nose?
  19. “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” by Thurl Ravenscroft and Boris Karloff
    • Must I explain more? You’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch.
  20. “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Perry Como, the Fontane Sisters, Mitchell Ayres & His Orchestra
    • This song will send you to New York City in a heartbeat, walking through shops and sucking on candy canes!
