These are the songs that we can't live without and Billboard put together a list of the most played tunes this holiday season.

Now personally my favorite holiday tune is done by the one and only Bruce Springsteen (Santa Clause is Coming to Town) with a close tie going to John Lennon's classic Merry Chrsitmas (War is over).  This list has everything, and it is hard to argue with the placement regardless of your taste in music.

I am a bit surprised that Weird Al's "The Night Santa Went Crazy" didn't make the list, but hey you can't win them all.  The top 20 is pretty standard, except for they threw on the Glee version of "Last Christmas" which didn't even make a premier till just a couple weeks ago.  I can't believe people are loving so much to project it into the top 10, but then again Glee is hot these days.

I am guilty of singing along with the #1 song which belongs to Mariah Carey.  Catchy, fun and happy this tune takes the cake for the holidays.  You would be lying if you said you didn't look forward to hearing it a few times during this time of year.  For a complete look at the Billboard list click here.
