12 of the Best Non-Christmassy Christmas Songs

Christmas is well and truly here, with festive musical favourites broadcasting from shops and bars in abundance. While we tend to embrace the classics from Mariah, John Lennon, Wham! and the like, we thought we’d take a moment to recognise some of those less obvious tracks that we associate with this festive spirit.

With the help of Startle’s Head of Music Profiling, James, we’ve narrowed it down to our top 12 ‘Non-Christmassy Christmas Songs’ - those forgotten gems and nostalgic numbers that bring us into the holiday mood, with one for each day of Christmas…

  1. E17 - Stay Another Day
  2. Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal
  3. The Mamas & The Papas - California Dreamin’
  4. Mutya Buena feat. Amy Winehouse - B Boy Baby
  5. The Gabe Dixon Band - All Will Be Well
  6. Mumford & Sons - Winter Winds
  7. Gabrielle Aplin - The Power Of Love
  8. Spice Girls - 2 Become 1
  9. David Gray - This Year’s Love
  10. Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
  11. Billie Holiday - I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm
  12. Madonna - Holiday

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from all of us at Startle!
