  • VOL is a good song but I would not include it in my personal top 15/20.

              I completely missed this. If I saw it, I would have changed my Xmas GOAT prediction to 3 or 4.

              • For better or worse, I think AIWFCIY is the song she'll best be remembered for when all is said and done, and I'm not mad about it either. It's the greatest holiday song.
                Your Billboard Top Ten: #1 Good 4 U [13 weeks]

                Remember that you are water. Cry. Cleanse. Flow.
                Remember that you are fire. Burn. Tame. Ignite.
                Remember that you are air. Be still. Focus. Decide.
                Remember that you are earth. Ground. Build. Give.

                • Personally I am really sick of AIWFCIY, I have hardly listened to it over the last two seasons. I choose Oh Santa instead last year. But yeah, it is the defining song of her career.

                            • I wonder what the reception to this song among fans in a similar contest would have been 10 years ago or 15 years ago.

                              It's always been the hit that got away, but I guess given that it hadn't properly charted before, perhaps many fans didn't see it as part of Mariah's pop/R&B canon, but rather as a special side project.

                              Given how the song has become so synonymous with Mariah and her music, an integral part of her music story, I think it's been embraced a lot more now.

                              Also helped with the rise of Christmas music as pop music these days.

                              The song is incredible.

                                I agree with you!

                                From RayRay's fan chart htat he used to compile years ago:
                                2011 (2010) (2009)
                                12. (13) (53) All I Want For Christmas Is You: 287 points (282 album; 5 extra festive)

                                So 2009 it was not even Top50! and just 10 years ago it was still out of the top10. Now it's a logical contender for the top and ended up in a solid #5!

                                • ^ yes - that's what I was remembering when I made my post.
                                  I know when I participated in other rankings I struggled to list AIW.

                                  Having said that, many members rated it as a 10 but they'd have many other 10s as well (I think I had about 20 or 30 lol) - so if it comes down to an actual ranking, would we still rate AIW in our top 10s?

                                    I'd say if I make the ranking in november I would, as I have my christmas spirit on. If I do it in january probably not! So it's pretty good that this rank happened aorund march!

                                        • I have always loved Fantasy - when I was a kid my brother used to play it all of the time. It's probably her best pure pop song.

                                          I'm so happy The Roof made it to the top 3! <3

                                                  Comment


                                                  • My second 11!

                                                    Fantasy has always been one of those songs that I really really liked. Ever since it came out.
                                                    But over the years it has really shown itself to me to be a perfect pop song - in that it just makes me want to listen to it again and again - driven by its infectious melody and beat and driving rhythm.

                                                    Now when I reflect on this song I realise how much I love it. It instantly goes near the top of my all time songs with no hesitation.

                                                    Not surprised it ended up outside the top 3, but am pleasantly surprised it was so well received.

                                                    One more 11 to go.
