It always struck us a bit daft that a term as innocent and genuinely warm as ‘Merry Christmas’ could ever stoke up controversy but its use continues to rile in certain quarters where the belief is that the correct term is ‘Happy Holidays’. Maybe people should just say whatever makes them feel happy and all those within earshot? So with a bounce in our step we busied ourselves in gathering a list of merry Christmas songs, with their Happy Holidays brethren following at some stage down the line. A cursory look at the resultant playlist proves what a triumphant selection there is on offer, which spans a variety of musical genres.

If it’s straight ahead pop numbers you're after then Frank Sinatra’s ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, Bette Midler’s ‘Merry Christmas’ and Shakin’ Stevens ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ take some beating. If you’re searching for something a little different this list also caters for you handsomely. Darlene Love sounds a lot older and wiser on ‘Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas’ than she did during her Phil Spector days. Much more wide-eyed is the Andrew Sisters ‘Merry Christmas Polka’ from way back in 1950 where the girls were joined by Guy Lombardo who added the appropriate background allure. And things don’t get much more fraught than the Ramones ‘Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)’ which sadly may be closer to a genuine Christmas experience than some people would like to admit. But what would a merry Christmas song list be without cherubic numbers extolling the happiness that the season brings forth? So Bing outdoes himself on the orchestral heavy ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ while the Four Tops gives Charles Brown’s old blues number ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’ a deserving glossy reinterpretation.

And if all that merry Christmas music doesn't make you feel the merriest we hope that it at least adds something to your enjoyment of the holidays.
