“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” by Elmo and Patsy
Although you don’t mean to laugh and sing with glee at someone’s misfortune, there’s nothing wrong with singing about Grandma and her encounter with Santa’s reindeer. While many people would gladly argue that she was indeed run over by the sleigh and not Rudolph, there is no denying how fun and uplifting this tune can be when you’re stuck on the snow-covered road.
“Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms
This catchy tune is so upbeat that you’ll find it hard to resist singing. Although it is pretty short by today’s song-length standards, that doesn’t stop it from being one of the most popular holiday songs in the United States. You’ll find that time seems to go by faster when this tune is playing.
“Driving Home for Christmas” by Chris Rhea
This is one song that is perfect for those times when you’re stuck in traffic and anxious to get home. The song’s writer actually came up with this tune when he was on his way home during the Christmas season. Not only is this tune one you can identify with, but you can also groove to one of the best car-themed holiday songs ever made.
“Winter Wonderland” by Darlene Love
As beautiful as the snow-covered roads can be, driving on them can be a bit hazardous. Sing this tune to help keep you calm, alert and in a great mood while you navigate safely to your destination. You’ll also gain a better appreciation for snowmen.
Whether you’re planning to do a little Christmas shopping or are on your way to visit family, friends and loved ones, be sure to load these songs onto your playlist. Don’t forget to stay attentive to the other motorists on the road so you can arrive to your destination safe and sound.
