We all have fond memories of singing along with the classics in the back of the car, so we wanted to create the ultimate Christmas playlist to drive to this winter. Whether you want to swing with Sinatra and Bublé, rock out with Elvis and The Boss, or bop along to Bieber and Mariah, we’ve got you covered!
