Back in the early days of radio it was almost a cliché for radio show hosts to comment on the running time of the average pop single because at 3 minutes they were the perfect for measuring the time it took to boil an egg. On this list of short Christmas songs your eggs would be left distinctly soft as every one of them runs for 2 minutes or less. Such is the perfectness of the songs on offer, however, that you’ll never feel cheated at these short bursts of Christmas tidings. And wouldn’t a Gene Autry or Burl Ives number sound distinctly odd at anything longer because both were able to hatch their seasonal plans as quickly as Santa can zoom up and down a dozen chimneys. The Beach Boys were equally adept at compositions that said what they needed to say in super quick time so on their ‘Frosty The Snowman’ they’ve introduced the winter garden dweller and told us all we need to know about his joyful character before the 120 second mark. Country singer George Strait lives up to his name as he plays it direct on ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ which is promptly dispatched without feeling hurried.

So if time is of the essence this Christmas why not pick and choose from our playlist of short Christmas songs to get your festive fix in the shortest possible time.
