Here are the best songs to listen to this holiday season, according to the White House

If you’ve run out of ideas for what to listen to you as you snuggle up by the fire this Christmas Eve, the Obamas and Bidens have got you covered. The White House just released the two families’ favorite Christmas and holiday tunes over on Spotify, and the lists are filled with lovable classics—as well as a few surprises.

The Obamas’ selections have favorites like “Santa Claus is Coming To Town” by The Jackson 5 and, of course, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You,” as well as some more out-there picks, including songs by Destiny’s Child and Boyz II Men.

The Bidens’ picks are equally as dance-worthy, but somehow totally different. Their list kicks off with “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” by Bruce Springsteen and “You Make it Feel Like Christmas” by Neil Diamond. Biden also gives a shoutout to his home state with “Delaware Slide” by George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers. But don’t worry, the Bidens are still hip. You’ll also find some Coldplay and even Lady Gaga on this list.
