Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

"All I Want for Christmas Is You" is a song originally performed by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey. It was released by Columbia Records in 1994 as the lead single from her fourth studio album, Merry Christmas. Carey co-wrote and co-produced the song with Walter Afanasieff. An uptempo love song, the instrumentation includes bell chimes and heavy back-up vocals, as well as use of synthesizers. The song's lyrics declare that the narrator does not care about Christmas presents or lights; all she wants for Christmas is to be with her lover. (Wikipedia)

Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, and philanthropist. Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Carey came to prominence after releasing her self-titled debut studio album Mariah Carey in 1990; it went multiplatinum and spawned four consecutive number one singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Under the guidance of Columbia Records executive and later husband Tommy Mottola, she continued booking success with followup albums Emotions , Music Box , and Merry Christmas , Carey was established as Columbia's highest-selling act. Daydream made music history when its second single "One Sweet Day", a duet with Boyz II Men, spent a record sixteen weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100, and remains the longest-running number-one song in U.S. chart history. During the recording of the album, Carey began to deviate from her R&B and pop beginnings and slowly traversed into hip hop. This musical change became evident with the release of Butterfly , at which time Carey had separated from Mottola. (Wikipedia)
