Fun Christmas Songs to get your Holiday Party Started! (hint..No Silent Night will be found on this list)

     Starbucks has returned with red cups, retail stores are advertising amazing sales and discounts, and a hint of chill is finally in the air. Yep, it's the holiday season once again and fortunately for Top Notch with the holiday season come's holiday parties and events. Naturally, with any “theme” party, it's appropriate to play fitting music for the event. Fortunately, during the Christmas holiday, there is a multitude of holiday music to find and play. It's no secret that many artists have produced holiday albums over the years, however, one of the challenges that I have found is locating specific holiday songs that are fun, happy, upbeat and also holiday oriented. Note: That mean's the numerous Holiday jams about breaking up during Christmas (aka “Blue Christmas” by Elvis, “Please Come Home for Christmas” by Don Henley, “Mittens” by Carly Rae Jepsen, etc) do not count for today's post. Additionally, a large portion of traditional holiday songs lack an upbeat tempo which is necessary at any party to get people dancing (examples include “Silver Bells”, Silent Night, The Christmas Song, the list of slow songs goes on and on). So, below I've shared 15 top holiday songs that I usually play to get party guests heads bobbing and the dance floor moving. Feel free to let me know if there are any songs you think I may have missed ( and Happy Holidays everyone!
