A MICHAELS CHRISTMAS - In Universe Holiday Playlist

Listen on Spotify //

Yooooo it's the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s that time again - the best time of the year. I threw together a playlist of my favorite holiday tunes. Weirdly, this ended up being mostly oldies (like, real oldies) but I guess that’s because for a long time my parents were deciding what we listened to. - Caleb

1. "Santa Baby" - Macy Gray

  • One of my mom’s favorite movies is “Mona Lisa Smile”. It’s SO boring, but this version of this song is pretty cool. 

2. "All I Want for Christmas is You" - Mariah Carey

  • No Christmas playlist would be complete without this. 

3. "Christmas Wrapping" - The Waitresses

  • HIGHLY underrated Christmas tune in my opinion. Those horns know what’s up. 

4. "Last Christmas" - Wham!

  • Wham! is so cringingly 80s cheesy but this is still a classic. 

5. "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" - Rufus Wainwright

  • My dad is obsessed with Rufus Wainwright. He’s got kind of a weird voice but I dig it. 

6. "River" - Joni Mitchell

  • A fave of my mom's. Really sad but I like it anyway. 

7. "Christmas is Coming Soon" - Blitzen Trapper

  • Adam introduced me to this band and I’m really getting into them. I also like that Blitzen is in their name - very on theme.

8. "Christmas Lights" - Coldplay

  • Just the most chill xmas tune ever.

9. "Sleigh Ride" - Relient K

  • Relient K is sort of an old band at this point, but I still like their stuff. 

10. "Happy XMas (War is Over)" - John Lennon

  • Another mom pick. I guess she really likes those sad tunes. 

11. "All I Want for Christmas is New Year's Day" - Hurts

  • This song is from, like, 2010, but it sounds like it’s from the 80s. I love it.
