9 Christmas Playlist Songs for Your 2016 Hyundai Veloster Rally – Temecula, CA

Oh my gosh, you guys! Christmas is only two weeks away, and no matter how you celebrate it, you can’t deny that you love getting, and giving, presents! My two boys can’t wait, and I’m having a hard time keeping all the boxes hidden. Luckily, the cargo space in a 2016 Veloster Rally Edition is actually better than you might expect in a compact car.

I also make use of the rear seat to stow extra packages in (well covered with a blanket, of course!) and it got me thinking that the 2016 Hyundai Veloster Rally is just like…Santa’s Sleigh! Minus the reindeer, of course, but 132 horsepower in the Veloster Rally engine does just fine.

Rolling with that imagery, I put together the perfect Christmas playlist songs to rock out to while driving your 2016 Veloster Rally in Temecula and, of course, taking advantage of the clear sounds coming from the personalized internet radio service featuring Pandora – or through your smartphone:

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” – Gene Autry, 1949

An oldie, definitely, but what a goodie! Even if Christmas in Riverside brings out the Grinch in you, you know you sing along when you hear it on the soundtrack inside a store.

“Jingle Bell Rock” – Bobby Helms, 1992

“Jingle bell time is a swell time… to rock the night away…”

Truer words have never been sung.

“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” – Miley Cyrus, 2006

Okay, no, not the tongue-perpetually-out always in a state of undress Miley Cyrus; I mean the fresh-faced Hannah Montana that sang this song like the sweet angel she used to (dress up like) be.

“Frosty the Snowman” – The Jackson 5, 1970

Remember when Michael Jackson was part of the Jackson 5 and looked like a person? Remember when he totally rocked this song with the Jackson 5? It was awesome, and if you haven’t heard it, you should add it to your Christmas playlist for your 2016 Veloster ASAP!

“Santa Baby” – Madonna, 1987

I’m not a big Madonna fan, but I appreciate her 1980s efforts to channel Marilyn Monroe, so I’ll give her a free pass.

“Blue Christmas” – Elvis, 1968

I am, however, a HUGE Elvis fan. You can’t rock a better song in your 2016 Hyundai Veloster Rally in Riverside… even if it wasn’t the holiday season, I would still find a way to sneak this song into a soundtrack.

“Feliz Navidad” – José Feliciano, 1970

We live in Temecula, CA. Feliz Navidad just is. It’s perfect for the area, it’s perfect for the season, and you don’t need to know Spanish to be able to sing the chorus.

“Last Christmas” – Wham, 1985

Ah, George Michael. I had a crush on him in the 80s, when Wham was big, and I was just certain this song was his way of working through a broken heart that only I, in my 6th grade bravado, could save him from. Um. I guess not. It’s still one of the best Christmas songs and I still know all the words.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” – Mariah Carey, 1994

There’s a weird Mariah Carey backlash, I don’t know if it’s from those of us who went to high school in the mid-90s and don’t want to admit that they used to watch Friends, but I just have to say; she can sing!


If there are any of these songs on the list that you haven’t yet heard, the best place to hear them for the first time this Christmas season is in the matte blue 2016 Hyundai Veloster Rally.
