LinkedIn and Spotify Team Up On a Holiday Office Party Playlist With Plenty of Bublé



LinkedIn and Spotify Team Up On a Holiday Office Party Playlist With Plenty of Bublé

You can’t have a great party without an accompanying playlist. Putting one together is an art form in some circles.

And it’s likely you’ll be attending or hosting at least one holiday party in the coming weeks. Most employees are actually starting to feel something short of dread when it comes to going to these parties anymore. But how would they feel about a party set to just the right soundtrack?

That’s where a collaborative effort between LinkedIn and Spotify comes in.

“When it comes to holiday music in the workplace, the best way to avoid a clash with colleagues is to stick with the tried and true,” editorial marketing director Blair Decembrele writes on the LinkedIn blog.

They’ve got a Christmas music playlist they say will liven even the most awkward office party this season. It’s now ready to stream from your Bluetooth device to your office speakers right away.

Decembrele says the LinkedIn picks are the most popular Christmas songs currently included on office playlists available on Spotify.





This list of tunes may require editing based on your acceptable level of Bublé. Michael Bublé appears 7 times on a 20-track list.

And “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” appears three times by three artists — again including Bublé. The other versions on the list are by The Jackson 5 and Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”.

The list also shows a shift in the traditional songs people are used to hearing this time of year. The standards may be on the list but they’re not by the original singers. But the list also features some contemporary favorites — at least songs that were popularized in the 1980s and 1990s.

Again, if you’re in a jam, the list is ready to play right away. You can also drag this into your Spotify player and tinker with some of the tracks to add your favorites. You can also poll your employees to find out their favorites to add to create and share your own office’s playlist.

    Loving the Buble music on Christmas. This came just in time when people from all over the world are looking for Christmas playlists.

  2. It’s that time of the year again. I guess this is in demand. Even offices now have their own Christmas parties.

  3. It is one of my most favorite times of the year. And music just makes the season better.

  4. Joshua Sophy

    Glaring omissions from this list — Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (Brenda Lee) and We Need a Little Christmas (Angela Lansbury). Far too many Buble tracks. What a wonderful time of year that we can have these discussions that REALLY matter though, right?
