10 Festive Bangers For Your 90's/Early 00's Themed Christmas

Updated: Dec 6, 2020

'Tis the season after all.

  1. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You - 1994 - Yes, let's get it out of the way. A classic we know, the best we know. All hail the queen of Christmas.

2. Bon Jovi - Please Come Home For Christmas - 1994. Some may say pure cheese but who doesn't love cheese at Christmas!? Any song that has the magical quality to transport me back to childhood gets a thumbs up in my book.

3. East 17 - Stay Another Day - 1994. Angelic harmonies to go with their furry white parkas. We questioned the music vid - eskimos, snowing with lady dancing IN SPACE!? We didn't think too hard though because.... CHRISTMAS.

4. South Park - Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo - 1997. Hilarious to slip this one into your Christmas playlist and sit back and watch grandma's face.

5. Tom Jones ft Cerys Matthews - Baby It's Cold Outside - 1999. Yes, I know that this version is a cover, but if I hear one more cover of this creepy, perverted song I will scream.

6. Destiny's Child - 8 Days of Christmas - 1999. A lovely urban twist on Christmas. Those outfits <3. Which brings me onto No.7

7. Destiny's Child - Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - 1999 - Off the same album as 8 Days of Christmas. Actually a really good version of this song! AND the music video features the 1960's classic movie. LOVE IT.

8. Faith Hill - Where Are You Christmas? - 2000. Written for, The Grinch. FUN FACT: Mariah Carey actually co-wrote this song and recorded it but due to beef with an ex and legal reasons, it had to be re-recorded and released by Faith Hill.

9. The Darkness - Christmas Time - 2003. This band were great because they didn't take themselves too seriously. Gutted they missed out on Christmas No.1 to Mad World by Gary Jules. Don't get me wrong, a great song, but way too depressing for Christmas!

10. Bo Selecta - Proper Crimbo - 2003 . Bo Selecta was hilarious at the time but this song probably won't get shown in this day and age. The video is full of minor celebs in 2003 and the song is very relatable for bed wetters.
