Holiday Shuffle

I had another Christmas themed post ready to share – but when I saw this prompt, I decided to join in. (Bonus – I now have a post ready for later this week…)

O Christmas Tree

For Ten on Tuesday this week, the prompt was the 1st 10 songs that come up in your iPod shuffle. While this would be an eclectic list given the wide range of tunes I have, I decided to give it a holiday twist & shuffle on the “holiday” genre. So, here are 10 holiday tunes that shuffled through for me:

  • O Holy Night – Joshua Bell (feat. Kristin Chenoweth) – Musical Gifts
  • The Chipmunk Song – Joey McIntyre – Come Home for Christmas
  • A Holly Jolly Christmas – Lady Antebellum – On This Winter’s Night
  • Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – John Tesh – Big Band Christmas
  • Mary, Did You Know? – Pentatonix – That’s Christmas to Me
  • O Come, O Come Emmanuel – Kevin Max – Holy Night
  • Christmas Is Coming – John Denver & The Muppets – A Christmas Together
  • Mele Kalikimaka – The Puppini Sisters – Christmas With the Puppini Sisters
  • We Three Kings – Pink Martini – Joy to the World

As an aside, I actually have a playlist titled “O Holy Night” & it turns out that over the years I have collected 17 versions of this beautiful Christmas song.

‘Tis the Season…what tunes would shuffle through if you narrowed your music to holiday?


  1. Interesting Christmas shuffle! I don’t think mine would be as varied; the only Christmas music in my library is Handel’s Messiah and a few Christmas songs from the new Pentatonix album.

  2. I have not heard the Chipmunk song yet. That always puts me in the Christmas mood!

  3. O Holy Night is definitely one of my favorites. It’s funny that you have a Chipmunks song on there! For a while I was always downloading the free songs of the week from iTunes, and I have ended up with some really bizarre Christmas music mixed in with my Diana Krall and Vince Guaraldi Trio.

  4. I haven’t started listening to Christmas music yet. But your list makes me want to make a Christmas playlist.

  5. Great list — thanks for the “spin.”

  6. You ought to give O Holy Night by Josh Groban a try, he has a beautiful voice!
