Whether you’re driving home for Christmas, on the way to shop ‘til you drop, or visiting family, the perfect Christmas soundtrack will make all the difference to your festive feels.
We’ve done the legwork for you, and whatever your tastes, we’ve found the playlists you need this yuletide.

Kids Christmas Party Hits
Got the little ones in tow? Kids Christmas Party Hits is a little bit like “if Disney did Christmas”. Think Frozen, Alvin & the Chipmunks alongside bubblegum pop from Little Mix and Britney. Packed with Christmas classics, it’s not just the kids who’ll be bopping along to this one!

Our final nod goes to the rockers. If you’re more Alice Cooper than Ariana Grande, Metal Christmas is for you. Featuring rock heavyweights including AC/DC, Korn and Twisted Sister, you can rock on to fresh takes on the classics you know and love.
