AllMusic Review by

Sony's Totally Christmas: Holiday Hits gathers up some of the more decibel-pushing examples of the Yuletide genre like Billy Squier's oft-overlooked "Christmas Is the Time to Say 'I Love You'" and the Bangles' muscular cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter," the latter of which, just for the record, has nothing to do with Christmas and everything to do with seasonal affective disorder. Elsewhere, Bowie and Bing do their sweet yet kind of uncomfortable "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" thing, the King endures another "Blue Christmas," and TLC take listeners on a new jack "Sleigh Ride."
