8. “Santa Baby” as performed by Kelly Clarkson
Starting our list, I wanted to go with a version of this song that I didn’t love but just liked. There were so many covers to weed through yet this one stood out. I don’t know if it’s due to Kelly Clarkson’s beautiful voice or that it feels more modern, but this one feels more like one you’d hear being played at a work Christmas party.
That might sound a little weird, but those who work in retail will know what I mean. Either way, this one ended up coming in at #8 because it’s a good cover, and has amazing vocals but wasn’t as sensual as the other ones so it ended up at the bottom. Given how many times this song has been covered though, this one is worth listening to.
