90 songs to play during the holidays to feel all the feels

On the third day of Christmas, my true loves gave me: three Destiny's Children (Beyoncé, Carey and Michelle), two duets and Mariah Carey's whistle. Yes, the Queen of Christmas has declared, "it's time" to play some holiday music. But with so many songs released over the decades, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect tune to suit your mood or to play when hosting a holiday party. To ease your end-of-year stress so you can spend more time with loved ones, buy gifts, and watch the new Lindsay Lohan movie, we've handpicked 90 songs to play when you have guests over or you're out and about. Want to be happy alone.

Below you'll find 90 songs divided into three playlists. The first one is filled with Mariah, Kelly Clarkson, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Sia, Leona Lewis, Taylor Swift, Andra Day, Kathy Ma Sgraves and other female singers. The next playlist features songs from bands/duos such as Wham!, Destiny's Child, Backstreet Boys, The Smashing Pumpkins, Pentatonix, Run-DMC and My Chemical Romance (as well as a new duet with Ed Sheeran and Elton John). The final playlist will have you feeling all the feels as it includes some darker songs like "Christmas Can't Be Cancelled (Only You)", "Coldest Winter" and "Christmas Makes Me Cry" .

Let's kick off the season with Mariah's perennial holiday hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You," 28 years after its 1994 debut , currently No. 1 on the Billboard Holiday 100 Songs chart. Remember to spread holiday cheer.
