Skip the mall music and get in the spirit with these catchy carols.

As of November first every department store, commercial, and Starbucks will be blasting Christmas music for the remainder of the year.

Despite the millions of Christmas songs out there, it seems like you're bound to only hear the same ones OVER and OVER again.

This Christmas spice up your holiday party with these unique Christmas carols.

An older song, this version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings is not only beautiful but a great arrangement between the Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan. It's unique, catchy, and fun to sing in your kitchen while making Christmas cookies.

Good luck hitting those Sarah-notes, tho.

You just can't beat Judy Garland. This is actually the original version of the song from "Meet Me in St.Louis" and it's a beauty. If you haven't heard it before, add it to your playlist!

Christmas Wrapping

Are you ready for some 80s Christmas glory? The Waitresses have the perfect ode to being too freaking tired to celebrate.

You have to be cool with repetitive-sounding, talk-singing, 80s pop...but if you're down with that you'll love adding this to your list of must have tunes this Christmas.

The Christmas Song

There are a bazillion versions of this song, but chances are you haven't heard James Taylor's version and you, my friend, are in for a delightful treat. Besides being an iconic song, Taylor's voice already sounds like it's made for Christmas and makes you feel all warm and cozy when you hear it.

Without a doubt you've heard this song before, but if it's not on your Listen-to-every-day-of-Christmas playlist you don't even DESERVE Christmas.

And this video! God bless us, every one.

If you thought this list wouldn't include at least ONE pop-punk version of Christmas, I don't even know why you're here and you can GET OUT.

But seriously, get yourself some angsty dance Fall Out Boy Christmas.

Baby Please Come Home

Death Cab for Cutie has the ability to make any song sound morose, but they're perfect for the sad carol about missing your baby at Christmas time.

My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year)

One of my personal favorites, Regina Spektor lends her angelic voice to an ode to the coming year that somehow always makes me cry. Still, it's worth listening to as you're sipping your hot chocolate and Baileys as you reflect on your year.
