Few people have a lukewarm opinion on the music that dominates the airwaves during the holiday season: You either love it or hate it.
At BestReviews, we absolutely love it — with a couple exceptions, of course. And for your convenience, we polled the team to put together a playlist that you can simply plug-and-play through your speakers. It’s got some standbys that you’d expect to see (because there is no such thing as a holiday playlist without our first song), and some lesser spun options as well.
If you want to seamlessly download the entire two+ hour playlist, follow this link and add the Spotify playlist to your library. We made it long enough that you can simply put it on for your holiday party without having to worry about repeats.
