Driving Home For Christmas

Our Top 10 seasonal tunes to keep you festive behind the wheel.

Michael Buble has risen from his lengthy slumber, you're slowly getting sick of mince pies and there's glitter literally everywhere. That can mean only one thing. It's the most wonderful time of the year! And what better time to put together a playlist to make that drive home in the snow a bit merrier! We love Christmas at Holiday Extras and to spread the cheer, here's our 10 favourite driving home for Christmas songs, in no particular order, as voted for by you and by our incredibly festive office!

1. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

Is it really Christmas without Mariah?

2. Chris Rea - Driving Home For Christmas

Of course this one had to be in here somewhere! We love this song and hope that its cheery melody will prevent you from pulling this face when you're stuck on the M25 on Christmas Eve. Come along now, look festive.

3. The Pogues - Fairytale of New York

We challenge you to try not to sing along to this in your best drunk voice! You know every word, don't you...?

4. Wham! - Last Christmas

Oh George, he's still not over it. But much like Mariah, we find it hard to get festive at all without our yearly dose of Wham!

5. The Darkness - Christmas Time

Christmas time! Don't let the bells - - know the rest!

6. Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry

We love a classic. And this is truly a classic! Queue squeaky kazoo solo!

7. Michael Buble - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

You only ever see Michael during December. We wonder what else he gets up to throughout the year. Unless...Michael Buble is actually Santa Claus? Seems legit.

8. Irving Berlin & Bing Crosby - White Christmas

Firstly, I want his shirt. Secondly, I want his shirt.

9. Shakin' Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone

Snow is falling, all around me! Children playing, having fun! Don't pull that face, you love it as much as we do.

10. Wizzard - I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday

We love this song, honestly we do. But surely Christmas once a year is plenty? Come on now Wizzard, not all of us have bulging bank accounts like you do.

11. Slade - Merry Xmas Everbody

Yes, we're well aware we said Top 10. But this one simply can't be missed! Just like brussel sprouts, most of us avoid Slade throughout the year; however, it just wouldn't be Christmas without them.

Our taste in car hire is just as good as our impeccable taste in Christmas songs. Don't believe us? See for yourself
