It's that time of year and in honor of the festive holiday season, Stars in Stereo shared their favorite holiday songs and why.
"blink-182, 'Won't Be Home For Christmas.' I've always been a huge Blink fan and hearing a Christmas song done in typical Blink-182 fashion is just what I like to hear around the holidays. Christmas is supposed to be fun and carefree... nothing says that like 'Christmas came a night early 'cause a guy named Bubba unwrapped my package.'
"Mariah Carey, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You.' I was raised Jewish so I never listened to many holiday songs, but every time I hear this one, I want to sing and dance to it! I love her voice and the song has such a happy feel to it."
"Judy Garland, 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.' Over the past few years, this has emerged as my favorite holiday song. The simplistic arrangement, and slight hint of melancholy speak to me. My favorite lyric is "Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow.' When the song was originally written, the whole song was lyrically sadder, so much so, that Miss Garland refused to sing it. She had it rewritten after her first listen."
"Bec took my favorite song. Damn you Bec. My runner up will have to be the Alvin & the Chipmunks 'Christmas Song.' I challenge anyone to listen to that song without the cheesiest grin on their face. It's impossible"
"I typically don't like to hear holiday music very much at all anymore (anyone who has ever worked at a shopping mall can understand), but I do like 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses. The song is about a girl who does a minimal amount of effort during the holidays and puts everything off til the last minute, something I strongly relate to this time of year. It's also got some sick bass playing going on."
