REVEALED: The best Christmas song playlist for 2018

Get ready to hear these songs on repeat during the festive season.

There are a lot of ways to get into the Christmas spirit this December, but none better than a Christmas song to get you in the festive mood.

According to Spotify, based on last year's streaming info, these will be the songs that Aussies will be decking the halls with.

Unsurprisingly, Mariah Carey sits at number one with the perennial fave All I Want for Christmas Is You. You can't be sure it's December unless you hear this song on repeat... and because it's strangely pleasant no matter how many times you hear it.

Michael Bublé makes an appearance four times in the top 10, which is great for him because no one is certain what he spends the rest of the year doing.
