#5 – Mariah Carey – “All I Want For Christmas Is You” – (1994)

Christmas songs tend to be rooted in tradition. Not so here. This song is extremely catchy which explains why it charted at #6 in 1994, then re-charted in 2000 and again in 2004 – and every year since. But what do you expect from the queen of 1990s chart performance? It has become a classic, and compared to most of the Christmas songs we regularly hear on the radio, it is about as new as they come.
