Musical taste is very subjective–for every lover of rock ‘n’ roll, there is somebody who loves country music just as much. At Christmastime though, lovers of all music types generally agree that there are several holiday songs that transcend genre and are universally loved. These are the best of those songs.
“White Christmas” by Bing Crosby
You don’t have to be from a snowy region to appreciate Crosby’s anthem to snow-filled Christmases. Even people from the South who regularly run their air conditioners in December can appreciate the wistfulness of this song, and hope one day that one of their Christmases will be white, just as the lyrics suggest. Written by the legendary Irving Berlin, this song is a holiday classic, and arguably one with the easiest set of lyrics to memorize, making it easy to sing along to.
