All I Want for Christmas

Trying to pick a favourite Christmas song ain’t easy, especially when there are so many classics to choose from.

However, there is one we can’t help but sing (screech) along to every time it is on the radio.

You know Christmas is truly here when you hear Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and the Grammy award-winning artists is celebrating quite the achievement this year.

The songstress has claimed the #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her immortal holiday classic All I Want For Christmas Is You, 25 years after the original release.

This marks the first time in the song’s 25-year history it captured #1 on the respective chart after ascending to #3 in 2018. 

It also stands out as her 19th number one entry on the Hot 100, making history as the most Hot 100 #1’s by a solo artist ever and the second most Hot 100 #1’s by any artist – breaking a tie with Elvis Presley and one behind The Beatles.

Mariah even earned a Guinness World Record for the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard Hot 100 by a solo artist.

The Queen of Christmas shines brighter, bigger, and bolder than ever.

If anyone needs us we’ll be trying to reach that famous high note and failing miserably.



Lads, we don't know how we feel about this, and honestly, it all makes us just say 'huh?' in our heads.

Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas is You is being made into a movie, but we're not really sure how it's going to work.

Apparently, the song will be brought to life through Mariah's voice and CGI animation (see… huh?).

The song, which is also a children's book, will centre around a young Ms Carey and her longing for a pet dog.

See if you can wrap your head around the synopsis: "When young Mariah sees a darling little puppy named Princess at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas.

"But before her Christmas wish can come true, she must prove that she can pet-sit Jack, a scraggly rascal of a dog; in fact, the worst dog in the county! Naughty Jack turns Mariah and her family’s Christmas preparations upside down in hilarious ways.

"Will Jack dash Mariah’s hopes for her dream puppy? Or will Christmas reveal how love works in surprising and mysterious ways?"

Glenn Ross, general manager and executive vice president, Universal 1440 Entertainment said:"Like the song itself, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is destined to become an enduring family holiday classic.

"It is packed with family fun, holiday spirit, poignant moments – and of course, Mariah Carey!”

Are we pessimists if we say we're still not on board?



The opening bars of All I Want For Christmas are enough to send most people into a festive frenzy.

While Fairytale of New York will always (and understandably) take first place in our hearts, Mariah Carey's classic hit comes in a very close second place.

Widely considered one of the most popular Christmas tracks of modern times, the song, which debuted in 1994, ensures Mariah will be kept in diamonds for years and years to come.

Raking in approximately £376,000 for the singer each year, All I Want For Christmas is (quite literally) the song that just keeps on giving.

And let's be honest –  for a stomper like that, she deserves every penny.
