Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Has Reentered The Top 100 Songs Chart

Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Has Reentered The Top 100 Songs Chart

That time of year has begun: the world has started listening to Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' again.

There are loads of things that will signal the arrival of the Christmas season, whether that be the first dusting of snow, Xmas markets, mulled wine, the Coca-Cola Christmas truck or even a few festive commercials.

But for others, it's hearing Mariah's hit seasonal song over the radio, at shopping centres and on your streaming service.

Even though we have only just ticked over into November, it appears people are gearing up for the big day as 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' has reentered the Top 100 on US iTunes Songs chart.

While it's right on the periphery at number 100, there is no doubt it will rocket up that list as we edge closer to December 25.

Despite the song being released more than 25 years ago, it only managed to reach the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States for the first time ever last year.

Mariah celebrated the achievement with a simple tweet that said: "We did it."

It wasn't eligible for the charts when it was first released because it wasn't put out as a single, while it was also previously ruled in the US that a song couldn't chart if it was a recurrent single.

Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Finally Reaches Number One In The US

The Christmas classic regularly appears in the upper echelons of 'best festive songs' countdowns, but there's also a large number of people who absolutely despise the track.

A survey published last year from Huawei asked Brits to vote on what they considered to be the most annoying festive singles, and Carey's ubiquitous seasonal hit unsurprisingly topped the list by a wide margin.

It gets streamed loads of times every year and smashed holiday streaming records in 2018 after being played a whopping 11 million times on Christmas Eve alone.

Other songs ranked highly in the Huawei poll included many of the usual suspects, including 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' by Band Aid, 'Last Christmas' by Wham! and of course, the infamous 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by Slade.

The full list is a follows:
