Back in November of 2015, I had the pleasure of having dinner with a group of friends (courtesy of the planning prowess of my sweet Jess & her hubby Ben), where I met their longtime pal, Michael Bublé. This proud papa, husband to the lovely Luisana Lopilato, and certifiably delightful guy, makes for one hell of a dinner companion. But there’s this other thing about him that is perhaps worth mentioning. Oh right. He sings.

Courtesy of this charismatic crooner, here’s a holiday playlist he put together for you of his favorite yuletide jams. In other words, pretend it’s 1993 and Bublé made you a mixtape. Mic drop.

My favorite holiday tune of all time. Written when a world was at war and families didn’t know if they’d see their loved ones again. A truly sentimental holiday classic.

Christmas began when Darlene Love sang this on Letterman. A rocking Christmas classic

Nothing like Bing and the Andrews Sisters swinging on this star of a song.

ELVIS…Do I need to say more ?

Written in Los Angeles , not only a great holiday song but a wonderfully written tune. Great lyrics wrapped in an even better melody equals timeless.

I wrote it. Sorry. Had to add one of my own. Please download it 200 thousand times.
