    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!

    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!

    I think predicting the order of the next 4 is quite difficult.

    A classic. One of the most important songs of her career.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    They're all amazing to be honest.

    Any of them would be worthy winners to be honest.


    I don't expect one of my 11s to be in the top 3 and that's very fair in the ranking because I don't necessarily see it as Mariah's most impactful and awe inspiring song, but to me it's SUBLIME.

    This is proving interesting indeed.

    What's interesting is that there are non-lambs, or non-hardcore lambs voting as well.
    It's not just the opinions of Mariah's biggest fans.

    I know this is near impossible but it would be great to see how the top songs ranked with fans vs casual listeners.
    If you can determine that - but I guess we know each other fairly well to figure that out.

    But it would be a lot of work!
    some rates are clear proof of who is a lamb and who is a casual lamb (or even hater) lol
