Call it basic or whatever, but ever since Mariah sleighed this classic, it's held a special place in our hearts. No one can top this song, and it gets you so hyped about the season. Real talk: The Christmas spirit would be nowhere without this holiday hit.

"Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" by *NSYNC

Boy bands for the win. *NSYNC will always have a piece of our adolescent and adult hearts. Listening to them during Christmastime will have your heart skipping a beat like you're hearing that precious collab of voices for the first time.

"Let It Snow" by Boyz II Men

I don't know about you, but men who can sing do something to my soul. Boyz II Men is an amazing trio who has provided us with endless hits about love and heartache. It's only logical that they bless the Christmas spirit with their heavenly vocals.

"White Christmas" by Michael Bublé

Oh, Michael Bublé. How we fall so incredibly in love with your voice every single time we hear it. All we want for Christmas is to hear this amazing song on repeat.

"Silent Night" by Kelly Clarkson

Kelly will always be one of our favorite American Idol winners. The girl had soul and we felt every single word she sang into the mic. As much as this song has been covered by many people, Kelly slays it and you may even cry a little bit.

"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Sam Smith

Where do I even start with Sam Smith? His lyrics are so real and that voice is simply unheard of. Seriously, is it even legal to be so good at singing just about anything handed to you? This might give you the feels, but the holidays are about a mix of emotions, right?

"Everyday Is a Holiday" by Katy Perry

Woohoo, it's time to get upbeat and simultaneously drop everything in your hands so you can bust a move. We all know Katy is notorious for making us bounce around in our rooms or in the club. Holidays and Katy? You may need some water nearby from all of the grooving you'll be doing.

"Mistletoe" by Justine Bieber

OK, maybe Justin isn't this young anymore, but who didn't fall in love with that baby face? This is a great song to sing along to with your gal pals. Let's be real though, any song is up for grabs when it comes to impromptu karaoke in the living room.

"Santa Baby" by Madonna

Madonna, you are my queen. We may not be able to rock all of the looks and moves Madonna did, but we can harness her musical spirit decorating the tree and playing this gem at some point. Talk about a classic.

"Santa Tell Me" by Ariana Grande

Strong vocals doesn't even begin to describe the musical capabilities of Ariana Grande. The girl covers Whitney Houston songs like it's nobody's business, and she basically eats high notes for breakfast. It's almost unbelievable how talented this star is. Even if it's not this track, do yourself a favor and give Ariana Grande a listen.

A major part of the holiday season is about the music you can blast during your festive preparations. No matter what your playlist combo is, make sure you're giving Santa a reason to visit town.
