Free Christmas Songs & Music Selections
We’ve been bringing you some ideas for the holiday season in the run up to Christmas and most recently rounded up Christmas tree decorating ideas and also great Christmas cards for kids to make. Another thing that makes Christmas really feel festive are Christmas songs and carols and today we’ve taken a look at some best selections where you should find something for everyone.
There’s a great choice of songs over on the-north-pole.com with their sing-a-long Christmas carols. Although they’re called carols there a good mix of traditional carols and newer popular Christmas songs. For instance there’s “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful” to “Frosty the Snowman” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”. In fact there are 51 songs on this list. Simply click on the one you choose and you’ll hear the music while the lyrics appear, allowing everybody to sing along.
For more wonderful Christmas songs take a look at xmasfun.com. The Christmas song selection is vast and for some choices you will see lyrics while for others, lyrics and a video or midi file playing the song appear. For example, click on Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” and as well as the lyrics nicely laid out you’ll be able to see Mariah’s video of the song. Other songs include old favorites such as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.”
Over on christmassongs.org the songs are split into three categories. These ones don’t include lyric sheets but you can hear the songs and watch a video for each. If you want some that are ‘Fun for the Whole Family’ there are choices such as “All I Want for Christmas” or “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” For those who get fed up with merry songs at Christmas (say it ain’t so!) there’s a section called ‘Christmas Downers’ featuring such songs as “The Christmas Blues,” “No Happy Holidays,” and “All Alone on Christmas.” There’s also an NSFW (not safe for work) song selection. Be warned these are not aimed at family listening and not for everybody but may be enjoyed by some.
Finally you’ll see a vast selection over on Christmas-songs.net. If you can’t find what you want from the choice here I’d be amazed. Each features a video and lyrics and there’s also a Christmas music jukebox to listen to free Christmas music online. The huge variety of songs here are split into sections such as ‘The Most Popular Christmas Songs of All Time,’ ‘Everybody’s Favorite Christmas Carols,’ ‘Christmas Music and Traditions From Around the World’ (split into subsections for different countries) and ‘Best Christmas Songs from Every Genre of Music.’ There are even ‘The Top Ten Most Searched for Christmas Artists’ including Michael Buble, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra and more. This site is amazingly comprehensive. For instance if you click on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” you’ll first see a history of the song. Then you’ll find the original lyrics followed by the Judy Garland version lyrics and then the lyrics for the Frank Sinatra version. You’ll then see a selection of versions of the song on video by different artists.
Hopefully our roundup of Christmas song selections will get you in the mood for the festive season and soon have you all humming or singing along.
