for all but five of the tally’s 50 weeks so far, including the last 30 in a row since December 2015.“When I wrote [it], I had absolutely no idea the impact the song would eventually have worldwide,” Carey marvels toBillboardof the carol, released on her 1994 album,

Merry Christmas. “How could I? It was so early on in my career and most young artists, at that time, weren’t really making Christmas music at the onset of their careers.“When writing [it], I was tapping into a bittersweet mixture of longing and festiveness,” Carey muses. “I had grown up wishing I could have a functional family Christmas like the ones I saw on TV or in the movies, but truth is … that never happened! So, I wrote the song for the little girl in me filled with

holidayspirit.“The record really has brought me full circle, and I’m so full of gratitude that so many people enjoy it with me every year.”Carey’s relatively modern Yuletide anthem paces a top five on the Greatest of All Time Holiday 100 Songs chart, in which Nos. 2 through 5 were originally released in the 1940s through the ’60s.

👈No one will give me a listen or guidance (battle rapper out of kcmo) check media 😩 As it should be! I’m sure it’s a great album, but for me it’s The Andy Williams Christmas album. My childhood right there. If you don't have this on vinyl then you're really missing out. it’s almost like it’s the best Holiday-related album of all time. It’s just 10/10 jazz music

Christmas Time Is Here is my favorite song in that album! King Vince Rocked it! Every year, I adore that score more fervently. As it should I was 10 years old when this soundtrack was released. It was adult music that did not look down on children. And my generation was appreciative of their intelligence and respect.
