We can’t go dull when it comes to our playlist, let’s not limit ourselves to sweet Christmas carols. Our friend, Chris of Runhundred provided us with new tunes to keep ourselves upbeat.

Given that they’ve both passed on now, it’s been a surprise to see both The King and his son-in-law (The King Of Pop) drop club hits this month.Elvis turns up in a remixed version of “Suspicious Minds.”It’s the latest in a series of re-worked Elvis tracks that began appearing after Junkie XL had a crossover hit with “A Little Less Conversation” from Ocean’s Eleven.And, Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” also gets the remix treatment—though the changes are subtle—as part of the new MJ-themed Cirque du Soleil production Immortal.

Other highlights from the top 10 include Katy Perry’s latest single, two tracks featuring Lil Jon, and a curious collaboration between Will.I.Am, J-Lo, and Mick Jagger.
