WEFOUNDAll I Want and More


A recent study by The Economist examines factors that affect the streaming of Christmas songs, but casually shares the revelation that Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has been streamed the most out of all holiday songs, amassing 210 million plays on Spotify alone. The study also says that it's responsible for about $60 million in royalties for Carey, which means she's definitely still receiving some respectable checks to this day, but did that really surprise you? Its lasting popularity another reason as to why the song might be the greatest Christmas song ever written.

This seems like a heated argument, but it's not. If "All I Want" isn't the best Christmas song, then what is? It's not "Last Christmas" (RIP George Michael, though) and it's definitely not "Wonderful Christmastime" (too much delay on the keys, Paul). You could make a case for Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite as the GOAT of the holiday season but that's not exactly fair because romantic classical does more than any other genre of music and is thusly the best, IMO. The clearest argument is for "All I Want for Christmas Is You," which is still the most recent holiday classic to date.

It’s FINALLY confirmed… Sugarland is getting back together, and NEW music is on the way! We chatted with Jennifer and Kristian this morning about reuniting and even got them to perform their hit “All I Want to Do.” Hear the exciting news and watch them in-studio below.

In an ironic twist of fate, one of the holiday season's signature tunes, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," finally earned a spot in Billboard Hot 100's top 10 this week, Billboard confirmed. To be exact, it reached number nine, breaking the top ten for the first time in its 23-year history.

The 1994 hit previously peaked at 11 last winter, but at the time of its release in Nov. 1994, it wasn't eligible to chart on the Hot 100 because it was not a commercially available single. 

Fortunately, the rules changed in 1998 and, as streaming became a component of the Hot 100 formula, the track started hitting the Hot 100 annually beginning in 2012. 

James Corden recapped a year's worth of "Carpool Karaoke" passengers with an all-star rendition of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas," featuring Adele, Lady Gaga, Elton John and Carey herself singing the seasonal classic.

Other 2016 "Carpool" guests like Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, Gwen Stefani, Coldplay's Chris Martin (who, like Adele , must have recorded his Christmas contribution back in January ) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who add handclaps and "Ho Ho Ho's."

The Late Late Show featured a series of Christmas-themed performances to get viewers into the holiday spirit, including a recent collaboration with Neil Diamond that turned the singer's "Sweet Caroline" into "Sweet Christmastime," about an office party that turns into a raunchy bacchanal.

Gay nativity scenes aren't exactly new, but they are rarely spotted in the suburban wild. So over the weekend, comedian Cameron Esposito posted this photo of her neighbor's "Joseph and Joseph" nativity scene, bringing peace and joy to the place that needs it the most — Twitter.

Before you get all "two men can't have a baby" on me, remember, Mary was a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus. Each scenario is a biological impossibility unless your name is Arnold Schwarzenegger and you're in the movie Junior.
