Top 5 Holiday Film Soundtracks

Written by Marija Bozovic December 25, 2011

Holiday music is everywhere these days. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no escaping it. I’m part of the holiday tune lovers crowd; I admittedly enjoy belting my favourite classics whilst wearing my fleeciest pajamas and fuzziest slippers. So, in the spirit of the holiday season, here’s my top 5 list of the best holiday film soundtracks. Break out your snuggies, make a cup of Baileys-infused hot chocolate, and enjoy some festive tunes.

5. The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas is among the quirkiest of holiday films, and the soundtrack is a big part of its charm. For those of you who like to opt for unique, non-conventional holiday tunes, this soundtrack has you covered. Leave it to Tim Burton to put an eerie spin on the holidays.

4. Elf

This film is absolutely adorable and heart-warming and if it’s not on your holiday to-watch list, I urge you to include it. The soundtrack plays on the sweet, joyful nature of the film with plenty of cheerful Christmas classics. The Elf soundtrack also contains Will Ferrell’s musical debut.

3. Jingle All The Way

Who doesn’t enjoy a little Arnold over the holidays?! Why not start by enjoying the comedic excellence he provides in Jingle All The Way. Those who love traditional Christmas jams will enjoy this soundtrack. Unfortunately, the soundtrack doesn’t contain any Christmas covers by Arnold. So truly unfortunate.

2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This soundtrack is full of fun tunes that fit perfectly with the cheerful and witty tone of the film. Those who like the classics will enjoy tunes by artists such as Mavis Staples and Bing Crosby. Staple’s “Christmas Vacation” is seriously catchy. Whether you’re into Christmas music or not, try listening to this tune without doing a little jig, I dare you.

1. Love Actually

Love Actually is a holiday essential for everyone’s romantic side. The soundtrack is full of lovely tunes, and is definitely a crowd-pleaser, striking a nice balance between traditional holiday classics and love songs. A notable mention is Billy Mack’s “Christmas is all around”, a true musical gem.
