7 Best Modern Christmas Songs
With only a few weeks until Christmas, it’s time to whip out the holiday playlists to set the mood. Like most people, one of my favorite things about Christmastime is the music. We all grew up with the same-ole Christmas songs, and while some of them are classics, it might be time to move on. Let’s listen in on the best modern day Christmas songs:
1. Justin Bieber – Mistletoe
Of course, this is first on our list, but when it comes to “modern,” this is as classic as it gets. Bieber redefined the term “holiday music” with his album “Under the Mistletoe,” featuring this bop:
2. Ariana Grande – Santa Tell Me
A couple of years ago, Ariana Grande released her own slew of holiday songs. “Santa Tell Me” soars with Grande’s famous high notes, riffs, and runs. You can definitely feel the Christmas cheer with this song!
3. The Killers – Christmas in L.A.
What’s Christmas without a few tears? Sometimes the holidays are hard, and if you’re having a tough time this holiday season, this song might hit you in the feels. The Killers really hit home with this song.
4. Coldplay – Christmas Lights
Christmas is all about being with the people you love. Coldplay captured all of their feelings in this song, shedding light on the sadness of being alone during the holidays. If you’re longing to reunite with your loved ones during the holidays, this song is perfect for you.
5. Fifth Harmony – All I Want for Christmas Is You
Alright, this isn’t exactly an original Christmas song, but it’s one of the best. Fifth Harmony is the biggest girl group in the world, and although Camila is no longer with them, this song will remain a classic for 5H fans and holiday lovers everywhere. The five girls rotate verses and slay every line.

America’s favorite acapella group comes together again for this original song about the different meanings of Christmas. The five of them share their own experiences as they fill our hearts with nostalgia. With a wide range of vocal talent, this group will surely make their way into your home for the holidays.
