90s Christmas Songs

The 1990's have brought us some great original Christmas songs, as well as many updated versions of the more traditional holiday carols.

Many popular artists in the 1990's recorded whole Christmas albums which received moderate success by combining some original Christmas songs with updated Christmas carols. Artists such as Mariah Carey, Nsync and Hanson released versions of Christmas carols such as, "Silent Night", "Run Rudolph Run" and "Merry Christmas, Baby".

Other artists in the 1990's have also released holiday singles which are still enjoyed today. Most of these have been remakes of the Christmas classics that we all know and love. Nataie Cole and Jose Cararras released a wonderful version of "The Holly And The Ivy" in 1995 and "The First Noel" recorded by the group, Crash Test Dummies in 1991. Some notable originals of the decade include Amy Grant's "Grown-up Christmas List" and "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey in 1994.

The latter half of the decade also brought us great covers of traditional Christmas songs such as The Barenaked Ladies version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" in 1997 and The Dave Matthews Band's "Christmas Song" in 1998.
