Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You
Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You is a modern-day Christmas classic that has become synonymous with the holiday season.

The song was released on October 29th, 1994, as the lead single from her fourth studio album and first holiday album, Merry Christmas.
The song is a festive and upbeat track featuring Carey’s powerful vocals and a catchy melody that combines elements of pop, R&B, and soul.
