In a recently conducted poll by smartphone brand Huawei, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You has been voted as the most annoying Christmas song ever.
Will that stop her? Hell no.
Those of you who are irritated by the song will be disappointed to learn that, this year, the song is set to be more inescapable than ever as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Having already worked the song into this year’s Christmas Walkers Crisps advert (which aired just two days after Halloween) and dropped an extended version of her classic music video featuring unreleased footage, Mariah is working harder than the devil to ensure AIWFCIU remains everyone’s go-to anthem for the holy holidays.
And it’s not just the single that’s celebrating its anniversary, but the 1994 Merry Christmas album it is pulled from too. To celebrate the milestone, Mariah will drop a deluxe reissue of the album which includes unreleased live versions of tracks performed at her 1994 St. John the Divine concert.
Haters, put those Arthur fists away.
On a brighter note (for the British poll voters amongst us), Mariah has announced that she will be staying in North America this winter as she embarks on the eighth leg of her All I Want for Christmas Is You: A Night of Joy and Festivity tour which came over to the UK and Europe last year.
Anyway, back to the survey.
In the poll, All I Want for Christmas is You is followed by Do They Know it’s Christmas? by Band Aid in second place (which proves that we Brits are just as cold as the weather we put up with) and Wizzard’s I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday in third.
Can’t say I agree with that.
Slade at four?!
I’ll let you lot debate whether the list is right or not.
