During the holiday season, it's inescapable: Christmas music! And while for some it's a soothing delight to hear the old (and new) favorites, for others it can be ... well, challenging.

So to help you set the jukebox to match your mood — or party — TODAY checked in with Billboard and Cloud Cover Music to find out which songs make our hearts merry and light! We've broken in the top favorites into five categories; classic, pop, kids, duets and offbeat.

There are far more tunes than we could squeeze into a Top 50, so make sure you let us know what rings your bells this season!
