20 Years Later, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” May Be The Greatest Song Ever Written

It’s now December, the time when holiday panic overload sets in. Christmas music has begun infiltrating the airwaves, subtly at first, occasionally breaking up the Top 40 rotation, but getting more frequent as the days go on. Retail stores, cars, elevators…it’s everywhere! You’re reaching a breaking point until a song comes on that stops you dead in your tracks.
You know the one. It starts out with a cute little chime, a little jingle, opens up with brassy vocals and your eyes grow two sizes bigger just like the Grinch’s heart. You immediately don’t feel so bad maxing out credit cards, buying all the things and working all the hours to make Christmas happen. After 20 years, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” may very well be still be the greatest Christmas song of all time.

Sorry, Christmas music purists.

Also sorry if that made you feel old.
