‘Tis the Holiday Playlist You Never Knew You Needed

Young Hot & Modern's Holiday Playlist

If you’re like me, the holiday countdown to Christmas and New Year’s day begins right after Halloween. First, I’ll make a quick stop for Thanksgiving celebrations, but after that, I’m moving full speed ahead to all the lights, ribbons, and holiday songs!

I polled the editors of YHM, and together we curated the ultimate holiday playlist for 2019. Head over to Spotify to listen to the #YHMHolidayMix playlist. From Shaggy and Gene Noble’s Caribbean mix “Christmas With Friends” to Frank Sinatra’s classic hit “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” the 61-song-playlist is sure to make you feel merry and bright.

As a Christian, I had to include a few melodies to celebrate the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. After all, Christmas is “both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon.” Nonetheless, this playlist is not just for Christians, and it’s not only about Christmas. It’s about the good vibes of the holiday season: spending time with your family and friends, ringing in the new year, and being totally into the winter wonderland thing even when it’s below zero degrees outside.

Use the hashtag #YHMHolidayMix to tell us what you think. We hope the playlist is a soundtrack for all your holiday moments this year. It features loved-up bops, 90’s throwbacks, classic hits, and more. Happy listening and rockin’ around.
