The most requested Christmas songs

Music

The most played Christmas song is EXACTLY what you’d expect!

With more than twice as many selections as the number two song, it’s clear that ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey is Australia’s favourite festive tune.

We looked at December song selections across our venue manager app Manage My Nightlife and our consumer app crowdDJ® and there’s no denying the popularity of this jingly, upbeat tune.

It’s not just Australia feeling the love either. On Christmas Eve last year ‘All I Want For Christmas’ broke the Spotify single-day streaming record, with 10.8 million global plays.

Carey and her co-writer Walter Afanasieff apparently penned the song in 15 minutes, and it earns her millions of dollars in royalties each year.

Congrats Mariah – a well deserved win!
