The History of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You 

Time. The month is December. December belongs to Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey contributed what Christmas songs to her repertoire? “Christmas past.

The 1994 song "All I Want for Christmas Is You" sounds centuries older in the best way. On impact, Mariah's first chorus sounded classic and timeless.

This song is very sad. It's not my goal to ruin "All I Want for Christmas Is You". Just the opposite. I want to boost it. Trying to deepen. 

In “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” who was you? I fear Mariah Carey's story will reveal that there was no you. 

It was empty. Actually, she had nobody. Fantasy song. This song aims high. This song shows that pop music—especially Christmas-themed pop music—can transport the singer and songwriter as well as the listener.

First and foremost, mid-1990s Mariah Carey was wealthy and famous. Not unprecedented, but close. She released her 1990 self-titled debut album after growing up in Long Island. Her age was 21. 

Mariah Carey is like Eddie Van Halen of ‘90s pop vocalists: technically gifted but driven by great songs. Pop tunes. Eddie finger-tapped.
