There are 15 days left until Christmas and this week’s 5 Fandom Friday is here to get us in the spirit! The 5 Fandom Friday is ran by The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick, and is a weekly Friday blog prompt connecting the blogging community. Back in my LiveJournal days I participated in the Friday 5 and this feels like a fun continuation of that. Looking forward to sharing these every Friday.

This week’s prompt is Favorite Songs To Get Me Into The Holiday Spirit. 

I’ve decided to include my top 5 songs, which are mostly the “classics”, but I’ve also included a list of covers of each! If you’re a Spotify user, you can also find these on my Christmas List Playlist.

The Classics

  1. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
  2. Baby It’s Cold Outside – Bing Crosby & Doris Day
  3. White Christmas – Bing Crosby
  4. Santa Baby – Eartha Kit
  5. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Judy Garland

The Covers

  1. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Olivia Olsen
  2. Baby It’s Cold Outside – Idina Menzel & Michael Buble
  3. White Christmas – Lady GaGa
  4. Santa Baby – Macy Gray
  5. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – James Taylor

Bonus: My Favorite Things – Leslie Odom Jr.

Happy Holidays everyone!

    I love all of the songs you chose – and the Michael Buble/Idina Menzel cover of All I Want for Christmas is to die for! I love the video for it so much, it’s so cute! And now I’m off to follow you on Spotify. 🙂

  • I’ve been living for Michael Buble’s Christmas album lately. It’s so great. I love his cover of All I Want For Christmas Is You!

  • I never even thought about splitting them into covers and classics! What a great way to cover them all. I need to listen to the Lady GaGa Christmas songs. That sounds like a good combo. Have you listened to the Seth MacFarlane ones? Love!

      Yes! I just listened to his version of Baby, It’s Cold Outside with Sara Barielles! I love jazzy Christmas tunes and his voice is perfect for them.
