Holiday songs may have been on the airwaves since September, but now that Christmas is just a few days away, they get twice the airtime. While Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas in our Hearts holds a special place in, well, our hearts, we can’t help but look for a holiday jam that can match our enthusiasm. Mariah Carey takes a back seat in this mix (though we love her dearly). Instead, we have some No Doubt, The Killers, and a bit of Belle and Sebastian to round it all up. Here are 12 tunes to pump you up for the holiday festivities.
