Everybody enjoys Christmas music! And we have no qualms about saying it. This Christmas 2022 playlist is for you if you're the type who starts listening to holiday music in September and doesn't stop until the new year. This fresh Christmas music will breathe new life into your playlist. Songs released within the previous five years were deemed "new" for this list.
We're pretty sure that your Christmas playlist may include timeless hit songs like "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and "Santa Baby" as well as more modern favorites like "Last Christmas" and every year defrosted tune Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas."
"Christmas Isn't Canceled (Just You)" by KELLY CLARKSON
Christmas Isn't Canceled (Just You), the first single from Clarkson's new album "When Christmas Comes Around," is a song to contradict "Winter Dreams" and demonstrates that even though some relationships don't end happily-ever-after, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
"Santa Claus is Coming to Town" by CRYSTAL DRAKE
Check out soul-pop artist Crystal Drake's jazzy take on this time-honored song if you're seeking a jazzy interpretation. Four seasonal favorites may be found on Drake's album Snowburst.
"You Deserve It All" by JOHN LEGEND
"You Deserve It All" is a must-add to your 2022 holiday playlist just because of Legend's pipes when singing.
"Mary, Did You Know?" by DOLLY PARTON
While recording this track, Parton herself said she became extremely emotional. It's the loveliest song about how good things may come from unforeseen circumstances, and that's a message we all need to hear more than ever.
"Stretchy Pants" by CARRIE UNDERWOOD
Although Carrie Underwood has recorded numerous beautiful renditions of classic holiday songs, "Stretchy Pants" will be your new fave! The humorous tribute to holiday overeating is just as seductive as the creamy mashed potatoes served at Thanksgiving.
"Snowed In With You" by MATT DUSK
Once you check out the live recording of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by the Canadian crooner, you'll want to add this to your 2022 Christmas playlist.

One of our favorite holiday songs is Neon Trees' "Wish List," so we are thrilled they have added "Holiday Rock" to their discography.
"Snow Globe" by PISTOL ANNIES
'Hell of a Holiday, the new holiday album from the country music trio, is released. The album's ten brand-new, original holiday songs were written by the trio of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley.
"How Could This Be Christmas?" by MANDY MOORE
Early in 2020, Mandy Moore released "How Could This Be Christmas," her first new album in over a decade, along with the timeless "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year."
"Yuletide Throwdown" by BLONDIE
