Five Christmas Songs Of The 90s We Love

The 1990s was a musical era marked by the rise of grunge, the emergence of boy bands, and the explosion of hip-hop. Even during the festive season, the airwaves were filled with infectious beats and holiday tunes, including some fun covers of songs which came before. Here's five festive hits we love:

1. "All I Want for Christmas Is You" - Mariah Carey:

Mariah Carey's powerhouse vocals and infectious energy have catapulted "All I Want for Christmas Is You" to timeless holiday classic status. Released in 1994, the song's catchy melody and heart-warming lyrics make it an essential part of any Christmas playlist. Its enduring popularity is a testament to Carey's ability to capture the spirit of the season with a contemporary twist.


2. "Stay Another Day" - East 17:

East 17's "Stay Another Day," released in 1994, might not be an overtly traditional Christmas song, but its melancholic tone and seasonal music video have secured its place in the hearts of many '90s music enthusiasts during the holiday season.


3. "Christmas Wrapping" - Spice Girls:

The Spice Girls brought their signature girl power to Christmas with their cover release of "Christmas Wrapping". The song features upbeat rhythms, catchy lyrics, and the unmistakable charisma of one of the most iconic girl groups of the '90s.


4. "Please Come Home for Christmas" - Jon Bon Jovi:

Jon Bon Jovi stepped into the holiday spirit with his rendition of "Please Come Home for Christmas" in 1992. Originally recorded by Charles Brown, Bon Jovi's version infused the classic with his signature rock flair. The soulful rendition, filled with emotion and longing, showcases Bon Jovi's versatility as an artist and became a notable addition to Christmas playlists during the '90s. This heartfelt performance remains a cherished gem for fans of both Bon Jovi and festive tunes alike.


5. "Feliz Navidad" - Celine Dion:

Celine Dion's rendition of the timeless holiday classic "Feliz Navidad" in 1998 brought a touch of international flair to Christmas celebrations.
