While we are the first ones to get tired of the same 40 or so Christmas songs that flood the radio waves in late November, we won’t deny wishing for some seasonally appropriate sexy music to set the mood during the holiday season. Below we’ve listed 10 of the sexiest Christmas songs for everything from a holiday striptease to getting cozy while the kids are asleep.
1. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Michael Bublé
Oh babe You know I need you Oh comin’ home I gotta have you You know I need you
We don’t usually think of many male singers who put on a ‘pouty’ spin on their singing voice, but Bublé manages it in this passionate missive, exclaiming how much he ‘wants you, needs you [and has] gotta have you’ this Christmas.
2. It Snowed – Meaghan Smith
It snowed, It snowed It snowed last night Everything is sparkling with diamond light The road is bare It’s four feet high Honey let’s play hooky Cause it snowed last night
This song is the perfect playful tune to recapture some of the wonder we still have after the first big snow of the year…combined with some more adult inclinations when we play hooky from work.
3. I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm – Kay Starr
Off with my overcoat off with my gloves Who needs an overcoat I’m burning with love My heart’s on fire and the flame grows higher So I will weather the storm What do I care how much it may storm I’ve got my love to keep me warm
Ohhhh, come over here and help me trim the tree I wanna wrap you up Baby, then you’ll see you’re the only present I need
If the intense 90s nostalgia that makes us love this sensual slow jam is wrong, then we don’t want to be right. It is the perfect tune to switch the mood from festive and cheerful to downright sexy as you snuggle together by the fire.
5. Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
Think of all the fun I’ve missed, Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed, Next year I could be just as good, If you’ll check off my Christmas list.
First released in 1953, this song has been covered by everyone from Mariah Carey to Taylor Swift to varying degrees of success but we have a soft spot in our heart for the original.
Eartha’s vocals are effortlessly sexy, strong, and definitely not cutesy or childish. It makes for an excellent striptease song that shows your partner you’re not too fussed on being good this year.
6. Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney – Ella Fitzgerald
There he was in middle of the chimney Roly-poly, fat and round There he was in middle of the chimney Not quite up and not quite down
Santa please come back to my chimney Back to my chimney, back
We don’t think it’s only (space) our ears that think these lyrics sound a little dirty. Even if it is, it’s still a playful song with the amazing vocals of Ella Fitzgerald, so you can’t really lose if you’re trying to flirt with your partner. And if they’re on the more well-equipped side of things, we’re sure they’ll appreciate the joke!
7. I Know What You Want for Christmas – Kay Martin & Her Bodyguards
I want to wrap it up for Christmas
But I can’t decide just how it’s done
It should be in a pretty package
And wrapping it is so much fun
It won’t be a surprise; it should be a delight
If it’s just our minds in the gutter for the previous song, that certainly isn’t the case for this little-known holiday song. She may not know exactly how to wrap up the perfect present, but we’re sure it was a lot of fun trying. Of course, she’s not the only one to think about all the potential kinky uses for ribbon and gift wrapping either!
8. Back Door Santa – Clarence Carter
I ain’t like Old Saint Nick He don’t come But once a year
I come runnin’ With my presents Every time You call me dear
Not back-door in the way you may be thinking, but saucy none the less. This naughty Santa makes sure to pay visits to all the good girls while the rest of the other guys are ‘out to play,’ hence why he needs to sneak in the back entrance.
9. Merry Christmas, Baby – Christina Aguilera
Merry Christmas, baby You sure look good to me Ain’t had a taste this mornin’ But I’m all lit up like a Christmas tree, yeah
Christina is feeling mighty fine waiting for St. Nick to come down her chimney! Her references to kissing Santa under the mistletoe go to show what list she’s made and Santa doesn’t have to check twice.
10. Santa Tell Me – Ariana Grande
Santa, tell me if you’re really there Don’t make me fall in love again If he won’t be here next year Santa, tell me if he really cares ‘Cause I can’t give it all away If he won’t be here next year
What did you ask for this Christmas—or rather, who did you ask for? We are well into cuffing season, or that time of year when the weather starts getting colder and we seek a relationship that’ll make things hotter. Even if you’re happy with where you’re at this holiday season, this song by Ariana Grande is as catchy as Christmas jingles get.
