Music December 1, 2020
As soon as the ber months come rolling in, it’s not at all surprising to hear Christmas songs everywhere you go—when you’re in the mall, when you’re stuck in traffic and listening to the radio, or even when you’re just watching TV and the commercials start playing. After all, it’s already a given fact that Christmas starts very early in the Philippines.
The Christmas songs you hear are oftentimes nostalgic and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. There are the classic Christmas songs and also local Filipino songs that remind you of Simbang Gabi, bibingka and puto bumbong, and groups of carolers singing right outside your gate.
With only a few more days left ‘till Christmas, what better way to count down the days than watching Christmas music videos on Youtube? Although we’re all stuck in our own homes, it’s not impossible to bask in the festive mood and Christmas spirit. Below, we list down 10 Christmas music videos to watch when you’re in need of that extra holiday cheer.
It’s hard to escape Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” You’ll practically hear it wherever you go. It’s become one of those iconic songs that you just can’t get out of your head once it starts playing. The music video will bring you back to that time in your childhood when you were always filled with wonder when Christmas came and were too excited about opening gifts.
It’s not a perfect Christmas without some Jose Mari Chan songs. Although he’s more famous for “Christmas in Our Hearts”, “A Perfect Christmas” also hits differently. Somehow, seeing Jose Mari Chan in his signature suit looking directly at the camera will make you feel really nostalgic about past Christmases spent with your family.
This video will make you feel like Ben & Ben is literally on your doorstep singing you Christmas carols. The beautiful Christmas medley that starts with the band’s “Bibingka” is wonderfully interspersed with the well-known Christmas song “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Everything about the song, especially the lyrics and performance, screams Christmas in the Philippines.
Don’t have a special someone to celebrate Christmas with? Let Justin Bieber serenade you with his hit Christmas song, “Mistletoe.” The dream-like winter setting of the music video paired with JB’s relaxing and soothing voice will make you wish you had someone to keep you warm during a cold Christmas night.
Travel back to the roaring ‘20s and sway along to Idina Menzel and Michael Buble’s jazzy version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” A few minutes into the song, you’ll find yourself bobbing your head along with the beat and maybe even breaking out into dance. The adorable duo’s dance performance is enough to melt your heart.
If you’ve ever had your heart broken during the holidays, chances are you’ve played this song on loop multiple times already. That heart-wrenching line, “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. But the very next day, you gave it away,” is probably something you’ve sung at the top of your lungs. But despite its lyrics being about heartbreak, it’s a song that nonetheless will always be a Christmas classic.
Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me” combines cute and playfulness in one music video. Ari and her friends spend most of the music video just having fun and dancing around while dressed up in Christmas onesies, large sweaters, and furry animal hats with mittens. The song is a playful bop you’ll want to listen to when you’re stuck in traffic or when you need a quick pick-me-up during a long week.
The combined voices of the members of Pentatonix perfectly synced to how they appear on the music video make watching them a kind of satisfying but also trippy experience. The band is definitely one of those that can make any Christmas song sound really good.
If there’s one thing “Jingle Bell Rock” reminds us all of, it would always have to be Christmas parties. ‘Cause who doesn’t hear this song at every Yuletide get-together? The old music video will instantly make you smile and laugh as Daryl Hall & John Oates take us through their house party where a Santa ‘magically’ appears in front of their fireplace. You’ll want to save your shimmying for this song!
John Legend perfectly captures that special yet delicate moment on Christmas Eve when you’re just with your family sipping on hot cocoa, having dinner, and exchanging stories. The shots alternate between a Christmas dinner scene, John sitting on Santa’s seat, children decorating a Christmas tree, and a swanky lounge where John and his duet partner, Esperanza Spalding, belt out beautiful notes.
