TOP TEN: A Very Merry Musical Month

Pass the eggnog.

Pass the eggnog.

In addition to this month’s regular Radio Report, I’ve compiled a special top ten listing of the top seasonal songs for this year. You may have noticed a few of them ranking just below my weekly top 40 in the past couple of weeks, but there are certainly more new releases than that both on the radio and at retail right now. It’s a fun mix of original pop and soul singles, and a few remakes of the standards. Let’s just hope you aren’t sick of hearing them yet; it’s only December 1, but some radio stations have been pumping up the endless “Jingle Bells” and “O Holy Night” covers for about six weeks now. Yikes.

Anyways, hope you enjoy the list, and visit the link below for our four-hour mix of merry and modern holiday cuts on Spotify.
