iPod Playlist: Best Holiday Pop Songs

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The holidays are a time for family togetherness, hot chocolate, aiding those in need, and a Santa Claus-sized helping of Christmas-theme albums from your favorite pop stars. Here’s some awesome ones:

• Mariah Carey, “All I Want for Christmas is You”

Come on — you know you love it. There’s just something about those chiming computer bells and honey-flavored vocals that’s simply contagious.

• Boyz II Men, “Let it Snow”

The drawn out harmonies, the electronic piano solos, and the familiar R&B rhythm make this version incomparable to the original.

• ’N Sync “Home for Christmas”

Just the thought of the synchronized line of Santa-capped finger-snappers is enough to induce homesickness.

• Spice Girls, “Sleigh Ride”

Santa’s delivering a sleigh full of thigh-high platform boots, Brit-flavored female harmonies, and union jacks.

• Britney Spears, “My Only Wish (This Year)”

A gum-drop-flavored version of Britney’s gummiest of bubble-gum songs.

• Jessica Simpson, “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”

Nothing spreads yuletide cheer quite like Ms. Simpson warbling over the warm melodies of one of the holiday’s most classic tunes.
