This should come as little surprise…Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has just topped ‘Billboard’s’ “Greatest of All Time Holiday 100 Songs chart.”
Carey told Billboard, “When I wrote [it], I had absolutely no idea the impact the song would eventually have worldwide. The record really has brought me full circle, and I’m so full of gratitude that so many people enjoy it with me every year.”
Number-two on the list is Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” then Bobby Helms’ “Jingle Bell Rock” at three, Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas to You)” at four and BurtIves’ “A Holly Jolly Christmas” at number-five.
The Vince Guaraldi Trio’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is on top of the “Greatest of All Time Top Holiday Albums” chart, followed by ‘Christmas’ by Michael Buble and ‘Merry Christmas’ from Mariah Carey.
