      No. That has nothing to do with the original single.

        Not a chance. All the Christmas parties / events are still coming up.
        The Queen will only get more and more streams in the weeks to come.

              • Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want’ Voted Most Annoying Christmas Song in U.K. Poll


                As radio stations everywhere turn to an all-Christmas format, what song would listeners most like to jingle all the way to oblivion? That question remains unsettled in America, but over in the U.K., a poll has singled out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” as the most annoying holiday song ever.

                The mobile phone company Huawei conducted the survey. Perhaps Carey’s song topping the poll is not surprising; the 1994 single is ubiquitous enough, worldwide, that it would probably come in near the top of any survey of favorite songs, too. But clearly it is not without its polarizing factors to many Brits who dread the music of December.

                The rest of the U.K.’s most annoying list is decidedly Brit-centric, with the Band-Aid charity song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” coming in at No. 2. A couple of holiday songs from British rock stars of the 1970s, Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday” and Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” are in the Nos. 3-4 positions. Do the English even realize how uniquely fortunate they are to have that Wizzard song all over the airwaves every December? Apparently they do not.

                Wham!’s “Last Christmas,” which surely would top any more scientific poll, lands at No. 5.

                One of the greatest Christmas songs of all time, “Fairytale of New York” by the Pogues with Kirsty MacColl, inexplicably comes in at No. 6, although it’s probably difficult to overestimate how many more thousands of times the British have been subjected to this ode to drunken dysfunction than Americans have.

                At No. 7, perhaps the least expected choice, from a U.S. point of view, is the Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” a single that has been inescapable overseas since its 1999 release but has gotten virtually zero airplay, ever, in the States. Given the ongoing controversy in the U.S. about the song itself, it seems safe to say that the recordings that Americans are more familiar with (like Dean Martin’s) would be contenders if a similar survey were conducted here.

                The No. 8-10 picks return the poll to territory more familiar to American listeners: the Jackson 5’s “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” and the Andrews Sisters’ “Jingle Bells.”

                That Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” was even bigger in the U.K. than in America yet does not appear anywhere in the top 10 throws the veracity of the poll further into question.

                One thing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” has going against it — or for it, depending on your point of view — in this poll is the fact that it’s the last original holiday song to have really become a Christmas standard; nothing in the 21st century can really be said to have joined the popular canon. Perhaps that makes it more vulnerable to boomers who might consider Carey’s song an irritating jingle-come-lately in a pantheon in which practically everything else has been grandfathered in, although there are probably just as many from that generation that cherish it for its debt to the Phil Spector Christmas sound.

                There’s more annoyance or delight where that came from. Carey’s 1994 “Merry Christmas” album, from which the megahit derives, has been reissued this fall in a 25th anniversary deluxe edition with a bonus disc that includes remixes, a new recording of “Sugar Plum Fairy” and previously unreleased live tracks from the singer’s ’94 performance at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.

                Curiously, due probably to a number of peculiarities about chart rules at the time, Carey’s song never reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100; the highest it’s ever gotten there is No. 3, a position attained just last year. Carey released a duet version with Justin Bieber in 2011. The song has been covered live or in performance by artists including Kelly Clarkson, My Chemical Romance, Michael Buble, Fifth Harmony, Lady Antebellum, Cee Lo Green, Ariana Grande, Idina Menzel, She & Him, LeAnn Rimes and Ingrid Michaelson.

                Clearly U.K. music fans are not taking their cues from the Guardian, which this year ran its own subjective list of the most annoying holiday songs of all time and only placed Carey’s at No. 20. They had “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in second place. The newspaper’s No. 1 pick: Bing Crosby and David Bowie’s “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth.”

                The full survey results for Britain’s most annoying Christmas song:

                All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey
                Do They Know It’s Christmas? – Band Aid
                I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – Wizzard
                Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade
                Last Christmas – Wham!
                Fairytale of New York – The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
                Baby It’s Cold Outside – Tom Jones & Cerys Matthews
                Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Jackson 5
                Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
                Jingle Bells – Andrews Sisters

                  SLEIGH ON MARIAH!!
                  That song has something really special to it. I’m not even saying this because I’m a huge fan, but it’s one of those songs I can never ever get sick of. If it comes on shuffle, any time of the year, I can never skip it.

                                      This intro has been consistently amazing since the start of her residencies. That sustained belt on RRRRRRRRRRRRR is superb.

                                        I agree, ever since she began the show in 2014 that intro has never disappointed and has remained a highlight!

                                          #No19 ☃️❄️����*♀️����

                                          US Lambs, I'm going to consolidate the info we've come across to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding this important movement to get AIWFCIY to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (I recommend you save this post to refer back to it closer to Christmas week):
                                          These are the Billboard confirmed online purchases that will count as a separate sale for AIWFCIY so you have 4 separate chances to help out (Make sure you only purchase these one at a time and only between December 20th and December 26th so they count on the most important chart week):

                                          1) All I Want For Christmas Is You (Original Version) $1.29
                                          https://music.apple.com/…/all-i-want...5972750…

                                          2) All I Want For Christmas Is You (Music Video) $1.99
                                          https://music.apple.com/…/all-i-want...230;/281280560

                                          3) All I Want For Christmas Is You (So So Def Remix) $1.29
                                          https://music.apple.com/…/all-i-want...0173909…

                                          4) All I Want For Christmas Is You (Mariah's New Dance Mix) $1.29
                                          https://music.apple.com/…/all-i-want...0780245…

                                          As it has been explained before: 1 purchase = 150 streams. That means for only $5.86 you can INSTANTLY make it count as 600 streams which is equivalent to 40 hours of streaming. Remember if you have already downloaded any of the above singles or video you can click the single in your library and select Delete > Remove From Library that way your purchase can count again if you repurchase it. AND you can still Gift these singles to other people you know so it counts as a separate sale so long as you have their email. Just select Gift To A Friend. [IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The 4 singles above should also be available at Amazon and the Google Play Store so that really is 12 chances to help!! That's 1800 streams!!]

                                          Billboard also confirms that they roll the original song and the remixes as a singular listening when calculating a title's Hot 100 metrics in regards to streaming so they all count as streaming for the original song.
                                          This year there are new singles that will also help AIWFCIY sales for Christmas week:

                                          *Remember each purchase has to be done separately for them to count separately. You can pre-order these now and they will all count on the week of Christmas.
                                          New Amazon Pre-order for AIWFCIY Single with Bonus Exclusive release of Mariah's live performance of "Hero" at St. John the Divine you can purchase now:

                                          CONTINUE TO STREAM STREAM STREAM NON-STOP! And on multiple devices. If you have an old phone or tablet stored away that you can hook to WiFi get it out. Whatever it takes. Paid Subscription Streaming from Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and Amazon Music counts as a full point value so if you can take the the time and are responsible enough to remember to unsubscribe within 30 days you can do a Free 30 Day Trial to stream non-stop closer to Christmas. If you already pay for these premium services you are good to go. If you are using the free Spotify or streaming on YouTube the streaming will count as 2/3 of a point value. Slacker and Pandora are also good sources but the streaming of AIWFCIY on those services will count as only 1/2 a point to Billboard Hot 100. Just for sure make certain that you aren't just replaying AIWFCIY by itself as this will not count. Here is a playlist for YouTube and Spotify that work since its not just 1 song repeating if you need a playlist or an example:
                                          YouTube Mariah Christmas Playlist to loop: https://www.youtube.com/watch…

                                          Spotify Playlist to play AIWFCIY with other Mariah Christmas songs: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4Z...D5mt7Bv…

                                          Spotify Playlist to play AIWFCIY only but with short interludes AKA Kick it into HIGH GEAR: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1r...QPG2Bjf7Njghgw

                                          You can leave these streaming on repeat on low volume but NOT on MUTE. Also when you download an Album Digitally streaming it from the outlet you bought it on does not count as a stream. So stream it on another platform like Spotify or Pandora. Or make sure you remove the download from your library after you purchase.

                                          REALLY IMPORTANT: The more you bookmark this and request on the below radio station links the more potential listeners the song gets.

                                                  • I wish Mariah would shake up her glam squad. They do the same basic looks on her every time. I really admire Kris' work, but either he is out of ideas for her, or Mariah refuses to switch things up. It's the same neutral tones every time we see her. And you can always tell when he didn't do her makeup.

                                                    I would faint if she worked with Pat McGrath. That woman is beyond brilliant, and could do so much with Mariah's look.

                                                      Mariah Carey is the first and only artiste to have #1 singles in four different decades
