Billboard magazine ranks the Best Christmas Songs

WTOP's Jason Fraley salutes the best Christmas songs (Part 1)

Thanksgiving is officially over, so it’s officially time to blast some holiday tunes.

That begs the important question: What are the Best Christmas Songs of All Time?

Billboard Magazine has just ranked its Top 100 Christmas Songs, according to its staff.

My personal picks would differ slightly, but these things are always so subjective.

Listen to Billboard’s Top 10 picks below:

10. Donny Hathaway – ‘This Christmas’ (1970)

9. Bruce Springsteen – ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ (1982)

8. Run-D.M.C. – ‘Christmas in Hollis’ (1987)

7. José Feliciano – ‘Feliz Navidad’ (1970)

6. Brenda Lee – ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ (1958)

5. Bing Crosby – ‘White Christmas’ (1947)

4. Wham! – ‘Last Christmas’ (1984)

3. Nat King Cole – ‘The Christmas Song’ (1961)

2. Darlene Love – ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ (1963)

1. Mariah Carey – ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ (1994)
