It doesn't really matter how many new Christmas songs appear each year because it is the golden oldies Christmas songs that will forever form the spine of our Christmas soundtrack. Makes sense really because whenever you think about Christmas and the way it used to be in the old days something from Bing Crosby inevitably pops into your head. And so Bing has a number of entries on this playlist of ours, there's 'White Christmas' of course but you could choose pretty much any Christmas song from his back catalogue that would fit the bill. Gene Autry is another automatic choice for an oldies Christmas songs list given the slightly worn sound of his Christmas recordings. But for all the wear and tear on show Autry's 'Here Comes Santa Claus' and 'Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer'just pulsate with the spirit and energy of the season.

Both Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland offer tunes that you'd expect on a list such as this but there are some lesser known gems that have you pining for the good old days. And if its old timey you want then country singer Tex Ritter’s gloriously historical (1945 to be precise) ‘Christmas Carols by the Old Corral’ is pretty much the template. If you are after something a little more transcendental then Mahalia Jackson’s ‘Silent Night’ should do the trick as it offers a powerful example of one of the best female voices of all time at the peak of her powers. A lot more fancy free is the Andrews Sisters ‘Christmas Island’ with arrangements from the peerless Guy Lombardo. Those close harmonies and orchestral flourishes will have you on the dancefloor before you know it, just like Christmas oldies were made to do.
