*NSYNC, “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays”

Go ahead, roll your eyes. Or squeal. Or say to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I forgot about that song!” Either way, you won’t bring me down! This song was released in 1998 (I was in the third grade… sigh…) and was, if you can believe it, the second release after their debut pop album *NSYNC. What’s great about this track is that you won’t find it anywhere else. It would take some real digging to find it done again by someone bigger than NSYNC was at the time it was released.

Even if you hate boybands, you can’t deny that it’s a pretty good Christmas song! And these boys can sing. The melodies are good and their harmonies are solid, and even if you don’t want to admit it, they have talent. So just let yourself get lost in three minutes of NSYNC Christmas.

"Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Happy Holidays We’ve been waiting all year for this night And the snow is glistening on the trees outside And all the stockings are hung by the fire side Waitng for Santa to arrive And all the love will show ‘Cause everybody knows It’s Christmastime and All the kids will see The gifts under the tree"
