We're figuring that most people have upbeat Christmas songs, rather than meloncholy ones, in their mind when they feel like getting into the Christmas mood. So we set about crafting a playlist of upbeat Christmas music to fulfill the role so you could instead focus on dressing the tree or making sure There is an adequate supply of mince pies in the cupboard. As you'd expect most of these uptempo numbers are December perennials from the sublime retroness of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' to the faintly ridiculous but unforgettably catchy 'Wonderful Christmastime' by Paul McCarthy.

What each of the songs on this playlist offer is a blast of festive energy, the spark to kickstart any festive gathering and the fuel to ignite your yuletide log. The diminutive Brenda Lee and her 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree' is the perfect opener, a powerball of energy that is forever destined to have merry gatherings swirling around the much celebrated Christmas centrepiece. An ever present and as rapturously upbeat as you're likely to get during winter is Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody'. Boney M.'s 'Feliz Navidad' could be top of the list of upbeat Christmas songs to dance to for this was a band that came ready fitted with a groove. A bit more frenetic but no less exurberant is Elton John's 'Step Into Christmas' which has become a regular on Christmas CD compendium's thanks to its unfettered charm.

If it's upbeat Christmas music with a touch a class that you're after then you should head straight for Louis Armstrong elegant 'Cool Yule' or the more contemporary '(It Must've Been 'Ol) Santa Claus' from Harry Connick Jr. With so much choice on offer this is a Christmas playlist that is hard to beat and will surely liven up every Christmas party it's played at this December.
