I will admit to one thing- I am not a huge fan of Christmas songs. In fact, by the 20th, I am so sick of hearing “Jingle Bells” that I contemplate ways to convince my family to get rid of the tree. Now, before you call me Scrooge and label me as evil, I’ll admit there are some Christmas songs which are so I even rock out to them in July. Here is a list of my favorite Christmas songs, which are not so Christmas-sy.

1. “Last Christmas” – Wham!
This song is perfect for all the bitter singletons to rock out to. “Last Christmas I gave you my heart, the very next day you gave it away/ This year to save me from tears, I’ll give it to someone special…” could this song be any more perfect?

2. “This Christmas” – Christina Aguilera
Christina actually wants to make you hang out with your family and see your relatives in this song.

3. All I Want For Christmas Is You” – Mariah Carey
Okay seriously, how could anyone hate this song? This is one the best Christmas songs every written.

4. “Christmas Tree” – Lady Gaga
Trust Lady Gaga to make a sexy Christmas song for her little monsters with lyrics such as, “Ho ho ho, under the mistletoe/ Yes, everybody knows/ We will take off our clothes,” anyone can get in the mood for Christmas.

5. “Christmas Day” – Dido
This soothing Christmas jam will make you want to sit by the fire, drink hot coco and play Scrabble.

6. “All My Bells Are Ringing” – Lenka
This is the perfect song to play while getting ready for a party. It will make you feel like you are in the beginning of Christmas love story.

7. “Santa Baby” – Eartha Kitt
A classic for all the ladies who want to be spoiled this Christmas.

8. “Merry Christmas” – The Ramones
Perfect song for trying through the snow….or through bad holiday traffic.

9.Valley Winter Song” – Fountains of Wayne
This song is too cute! Perfect to play in the background during a holiday party.

10. “A Little Love In Your Heart” – Jackie Deshannon
I guess the whole meaning of Christmas wrapped up into one song- put a little lovein your heart, (and a little liquor in your drink) and you’ll get through it Scrooge!
