Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Eartha Kitt – this compilation contains the velvety-smooth voices you love most into an extended, 40-song playlist. It’s a great mix to unwind to after a long day of family fun or running last-minute holiday errands.
Holiday classics with a modern twist
Looking to infuse some modern-day music into your holidays? There are plenty of revamped, rethought and reimagined versions of your favorite songs out there by some of today’s most talented artists.
No matter how old you are, you’ve no doubt heard at least a few of these while out gift-shopping or watching commercial breaks around the holidays. This playlist is packed full of holiday classics, including Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, and Michael Bublé’s Winter Wonderland, among many other pop-Christmas songs!
While perhaps it’s not a playlist in the purest sense of the word, it’s definitely worth giving Pentatonix’s Christmas Album a listen this year. There’s no way you can go wrong with these beautiful, classic melodies sung in full force (and a capella, we might add) by a group of talented vocalists who gained international recognition after winning NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2011.
