Getting ready for New Year’s Eve? Stream these 18 classic Christmas tracks, and two pop songs that fit in well. Read the entire list below!

Judy Garland released the haunting “Happy New Year” on her 1958 album Alone, and is one of the saddest holiday songs ever recorded. James Brown released “Merry Christmas My Baby, and a Very, Very Happy New Year” as the B-side of a 1970 single called I’m Your Christmas Friend, Don’t Be Hungry. But it was not included in any of his three Christmas LP’s that followed. And the Counting Crows released one of their top five best songs ever “A Long December” in 1996 off their sophomore album Recovering the Satellites.
