1. Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Bruce Springsteen
I had this record growing up, and it is still my favorite Christmas moodsetter. The main difference is that now I play it on my computer instead of my Big Bird record player, but only because that 45 has been pretty much played to death. Maybe I could find another copy on Amazon….
2. Do it on My Twin Bed – Saturday Night Live
The new generation of Saturday Night Live women kill it with their music video tribute to the holidays.
3. Baby it’s Cold Outside – Elf Version
Elf is an amazing Jon Favreau Christmas movie, and this scene showcases Zooey’s voice and Will Ferrell’s sweetness.
4. Santa’s My Boyfriend – Saturday Night Live
Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Kristen Wigg sing about their boyfriend Santa, and it is amazing.
5. Christmas is all Around – Billy Mack from Love Actually
Bill Nighy is the absolute best part of Love Actually, playing a musician being hilariously honest about Christmasing up an old song for the hopes of a comeback. As well as beating all those sugary pop Christmas songs on the charts!
