A 2017 Christmas music playlist, featuring lotsa Harry Connick Jr., Mahalia Jackson, Pink Martini, Aretha Franklin, Pentatonix, & Nat King Cole.

Christmas Music Playlist 2017

Who wasn’t sure I’d actually get this post up this year? 🙋🏻 But I do this every year and as I’ve been listening to music as I drive around I’ve been trying to remember which ones have really caught my attention. As always, you will see some repeats. A Christmas music playlist isn’t a Christmas music playlist unless it’s filled to the brim with Harry Connick Jr. Additionally, you can just listen to all of his Christmas albums on repeat like I do all season long. The playlist starts with HCJ’s Sleigh Ride as it does every year, because I have not started listening to Christmas music until I’ve heard that song. It opens his album Where the Heart Finds Christmas, which is also the first Christmas album I listen to every year. And the playlist ends with my favorite version of Auld Lang Syne. And, as always, you’ll also hear Mahalia Jackson’s Silent Night, Holy Night, because… there really are no words to describe how much I love her rendition.

I hope you enjoy this playlist and I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas!

What are some of your favorites?

    I love Christmas music and I’m so sad when it ends each year. I think my favorite Christmas song is Pretty Paper.

    Michael Buble always seems to come out around Christmas time, and I LOVE it! I associate his voice with the holidays now. Merry Christmas!

    Great list. I don’t know if I should be embarassed or not but I’ve never heard Harry Connick Jr.’s Sleigh Ride. My favorite christmas song is a little bit of a guilty pleasure (maybe all christmas songs are…): Wham – Last Christmas 😉

    Admittedly, I hate Christmas music. But I’m trying not to be so much of a Scrooge this year and I made a playlist & I’ve been in the need of some more songs to add – so thanks for this!

    Spotify is my FAVE! I had my playlist made and playing the day after Thanksgiving. I see a few songs I missed here so I may need to follow your list as well 😉
