There are countless Christmas songs available today, and more are being made every year. Many of the popular songs have been re-recorded numerous times. With such a large number to chose from it might seem tough to pick out the best of the best.
There can only be one best rendition of any given song. Here is my list of some popular Christmas tunes that I think have been done as well as or better than any other effort in history.
You’ll find multiple versions of these songs done by dozens of different performers. I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority are wasting their time. Do us all a favor. Come up with a new jingle. Move on. You won’t improve on any of these here.
