It's less than 30 days to Christmas, so that means it's more than acceptable to start making your Christmas playlist, right? Here's a list of our favourite Christmas song covers to get you feeling festive from your head to your (mistle)toe.

 

Ed Sheeran and Anne-Marie - 'Fairytale of New York'

Arguably one of the best Christmas songs, Ed and Anne-Marie have go at doing justice to 'Fairytale of New York'. Just ignore the PG lyrics and it's a great attempt - all finished out with 'Jingle Bells' to make it even more Christmassy.

 

Michael Bublé - ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’ 

Bublé has come out of his cave and has already made it into department stores all around the country. Not only that, he's somehow managed to make his way onto our playlists strictly reserved for pumping us up on the way into work. Cheeky fecker, we can't get enough.

 

Ariana Grande ft. Liz Gillies - ’Santa Baby’

Originally sung by Eartha Kitt in 1953, and then made famous again by numerous artists including Kylie Minogue, Michael Bublé, and even a new release by Gwen Stefani this year - Grande and Gillies' version is a very worthy inclusion.

 

John Legend - ‘Christmas Time Is Here’

Taking a punt at his own Christmas album this year, John Legend's version of the 1965 TV special for 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' is sure to get you in the festive mood. We've a feeling we'll be hearing 'A Legendary Christmas' for years to come, as it's full of Christmas song covers.

 

Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt - ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ 

Technically recorded for a Thanksgiving holiday special in 2013, 'Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular' was 90 minutes filled with singing and dancing from Kristen Bell, RuPaul, Elton John, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

 

Delorentos - 'Winter Song'

Delorentos recently announced that their new Christmas EP, 'Be Here Christmas Time' will see all proceeds go straight to Focus Ireland this year. 'Winter Song' features on the EP, and you can download the album here.

 

Justin Bieber and Stevie Wonder - ‘The Christmas Song’ 

In what could possibly be the most random collaboration ever, the pair performed on the final of the 'X-Factor USA' back when Bieber still looked about 12.

 

U2 - '(Christmas) Baby Please Come Home'

The U2 cover song, originally by Darlene Love, was recorded during a sound check in Glasgow while the band were on their 'Joshua Tree Tour' in 1987.

 

Demi Lovato - ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

It would be rude of us to not include Mariah Carey's money-making machine that is 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. Demi Lovato's got some pipes on her, and does the song justice while performing in front of the Obama family.

 

The Simpsons - ‘Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer’

A bit of a curve-ball, but stuffed full of nostalgia it had to be included. Taken from season one, episode one's 'Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire', the extra lyrics provided by Bart and Lisa alone make a relatively boring song all the better.
