Canciones navideñas en inglés

La siguiente lista que hemos preparado en este artículo te mostrará algunas de las más tradicionales canciones de diferentes géneros que van desde “carols” hasta música popularizada por grandes cantantes de la música pop.

1. O holy night

Un párroco local pidió a Placide Cappeau, un vendedor de vino del sur de Francia, que escribiera un poema festivo en 1847 para celebrar la renovación del órgano de la iglesia.

Cappeau sintió que debería ir acompañado de música, por lo que se acercó a su amigo Adolphe Charles Adams. El texto de Adams reflexiona sobre el nacimiento de Jesús y la redención de la humanidad. O holy night es uno de los christmas carols más escuchados de todos los tiempos.

canciones navideñas en inglés

Oh holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
'Til He appeared and the soul felt it's worth
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the Angels' voices
Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
Fall on your knees, oh, hear, hear the Angels' voices
Oh, night divine, yeah, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine
Oh yes, said rise (oh night divine)
It is the night of the Lord savior's birth
Oh, night divine (oh, oh, Lord, baby)
Oh, night divine (it was a holy, holy, holy, oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh night divine)
This is a (oh night, yeah, yeah)
Oh night divine, oh night, holy night!
Oh night divine, oh night, holy night!
Oh night divine, oh night
Oh night divine, oh night, holy night!

2. Wonderful christmastime

La interpretación de Diana Ross del favorito festivo de Macca es definitivamente una versión suprema empapada de cuerdas y campanas de trineo, suena un poco más saludable y antigua que la original, especialmente cuando se tiene en cuenta su aún mágica Soprano. Esta es una de las canciones navideñas en inglés más sonadas y conocidas por los amantes de la música de esta época.

Letra

The mood is right, the spirit's up
We're here tonight and that's enough
Simply having a wonderful christmastime
Simply having a wonderful christmastime
The party's on, the feeling's here
That only comes this time of year
Simply having a wonderful christmastime
Simply having a wonderful christmastime
The choir of children sing their song
They practiced all year long
Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, ding
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
The world is out, about the town
To lift a glass, oh don't look down
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
The choir of children sing their song
They practiced all year long
Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, ding
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
The party's on, the feeling's here
That only comes this time of year
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
We're simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

3. Silent night

Originalmente escrita en alemán, 'Stille Nacht' fue compuesta en 1818 por Franz Xaver Gruber con letra de Joseph Mohr, y fue traducido al inglés en 1859. Durante la tregua de Navidad de 1914 durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, el villancico fue cantado simultáneamente por inglés y Tropas alemanas. Este es otro de los carols más conocidos y populares.

Letra

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing 'Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

4. Jingle Bell Rock

Tras su lanzamiento en 1957, esta canción de rockabilly encabezó las listas navideñas cinco años seguidos, lo que la convirtió en un verdadero clásico navideño incluso a principios de los sesenta en la voz de Bobby Helms. Hoy en día conserva una presencia imponente en el canon navideño, sinónimo de festividad por lo que es una de las más conocidas canciones navideñas en inglés.

Letra

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air
What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell rock
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air
What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock

5. O come all ye faithful

No está claro quién escribió la música o la letra de este himno. Los posibles candidatos incluyen al rey Juan IV de Portugal y John Francis Wade, mientras que los compositores Handel y Gluck han sido sugeridos como los cerebros detrás de la melodía.

El himno también aparece en la película de 1992 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, cuando es interpretado por una orquesta sinfónica en el Carnegie Hall. Se ha convertido en una de las más tradicionales canciones navideñas en inglés.

Letra

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant

6. The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth

Este encuentro surrealista en el especial de Navidad número 42 de Bing Crosby entre The Thin White Duke y el buen chico de la televisión familiar estadounidense se ha convertido en una leyenda. Después de que Dave confunde a Bing con un mayordomo y Bing se burla del gusto musical de Bowie, se lanzan a un popurrí de "The Little Drummer Boy" y "Peace On Earth". Los resultados son asombrosos.

Letra

Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A newborn king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Peace on Earth, can it be? (Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
Years from now, perhaps we'll see? (A newborn king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
See the day of glory (our finest gift we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
See the day, when men of good will (to lay before the king pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
Live in peace, live in peace again (rum-pum-pum-pum)
Peace on Earth (so to honor him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
Can it be (when we come)

Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true (little baby pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
For my child and your child too (I stood beside him there pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
He'll see the day of glory (I played my drum for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
See the day when men of good will (I played my best for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
Live in peace, live in peace again (rum-pum-pum-pum)
Peace on Earth (then he smiled at me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
Can it be (me and my drum)

Can it be

7. O Come, O Come Emmanuel

Cantado tanto en Adviento como en Navidad, este himno se origina en latín, pero fue traducido al inglés en 1861. La música del himno se compuso de tal manera que las palabras en inglés y en latín se pueden usar indistintamente. Si buscas canciones navideñas en inglés que sean carols tradicionales, sin duda ésta no puede faltar en la lista.

Letra

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here,
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory o'er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Dayspring, from on high,
And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come
And open wide our heav'nly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Adonai, Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

8. Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hay miles de versiones de esta canción in terpretada por una variedad de artistas desde Justin Bieber hasta Michael Bublé, sin embargo, muchos opinan que la versión de los Jackson 5 es la mejor y la más divertida. Cualquiera que sea el cantante, esta canción navideña se ha convertido en un favorito de todos los tiempos.

Letra

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list,
He's checking it twice,
He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
And he knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
'Cause Santa Claus is coming to town
Oh let's go!
He sees you when you're sleeping
And he knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming
I mean the big fat man with the long white beard
Is coming to town

9. The first Noel

Existe la idea errónea de que "The First Noel" es francés, debido a la ortografía de "Noël". Pero en realidad es de origen de Cornualles, y la mayoría de las partituras de himnos optan por la antigua ortografía anglosajona inglesa, Nowell. Este carol es un favorito de los amantes de la música navideña.

Letra

Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
The First Noel, the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
Born is the King of Israel!
Noel, Noel
Noel, Noel

10. All I Want For Christmas Is You

Sorprendentemente, el innegable clásico navideño de Mariah Carey nunca llegó al número uno en 1994, pero desde entonces ha enmendado su reingreso al Top 40 cada año desde 2007, ayudando a cimentar la reputación de Carey como la "Reina de la Navidad". Es por esto que si buscas las más populares canciones navideñas en inglés, esta es una que no puede faltar en ninguna lista.

Letra

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You, baby
Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
And I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby
Oh, all the lights are shining so brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa, won't you bring me the one I really need?
Won't you please bring my baby to me?
Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh, I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas... is you
You, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
