1. Mariah Carey: All I Want For Christmas Is You
This issue is a few years old. It was published in 1994, but had to wait until a couple of Christmases to become popular. To the point that last year it entered the top 10 on Billboard. This year and, after re-entering the top 29, it is already top 14. All I Want For Christmas Is You is one of those endearing songs that do not seem like a Christmas carol , but a declaration of love. But the truth is that both the lyrics and the different musical sounds of the song invite us to listen to it only at this time.

Last Christmas is another of the songs that sound over and over again every Christmas and that we can't get tired of listening to.
