LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 10: Mariah Carey performs onstage during the 2023 LA Pride in the Park Festival at Los Angeles Historical Park on June 10, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.

Christmas music is everywhere as we get closer to the very festive holiday. At parties, in shopping malls, it seems like we can’t escape hearing some classic holiday tunes. One song in particular has taken on a life of it’s own though. And that is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” I thought I could highlight some different versions of it though. I wanted to take a look at the top 5 mashups of Mariah Carey’s Holiday classic!

Why is this song so appealing? I always thought it had something to do with the fact that although it came out in the early 90’s, it had kind of an “oldies” feel to it. Appealing to the kids who liked Mariah at the time, but also giving Mom and Dad a feeling of nostalgia from the days of their youth. It’s got an upbeat tempo to it. Kind of a toe-tapper if you will. And then boys, girls, men and women alike can all sig along and try to hit those high notes with Mariah. Whether seriously or just to be funny. It makes for a good time.

It’s also a feel-good Christmas anthem. Not that there’s anything wrong with sad songs or ones with heavy lyrics, but this just seems to resonate with a lot of folks because it’s not that deep. Just a fun little tune written to make your head bop.

Of course, in the world of the internet, you didn’t think people would just leave this song alone for us to enjoy did you? There are mashups galore to listen to if you’re in the mood to shake things up a bit. From rock tunes to pop classics all mixed with Mariah’s holiday hit. Let’s take a look at the top 5 mashups of Mariah Carey’s holiday classic!

  • Mariah Carey Vs. My Chemical Romance

    Wasn’t sure where this one was going to go. But The Black Parade lyrics fit so well. It’s kind of creepy hahahah!

  • Mariah Carey Vs. RadioHead

    At first I thought this one felt forced.  But then I listened again.  It kind of makes me chuckle.  Radiohead in a fun upbeat cheeerful song??? very unexpected.

  • Mariah Carey Vs. Earth Wind and Fire

    Maybe every song can go with her hit?  This one is another one that makes me chuckle.  At least this is another upbeat positive song, so it kind of fits easily without sounding off-putting.

  • Mariah Carey Vs. Metallica

    My favorite Metal band and an upbeat Christmas classic?  What could go wrong.  Check this out!!  The main riff with those Sleigh bells….hahahahahaha

  • Mariah Carey Vs. Slipknot
